probably the 2 3/4 inches of rain night before last and the 1/2 inch of rain last night we got 10 miles North of Redstone is making it's way to the lake....
MOON PHASE (31%)
81° - 88° F
76° - 80° F
3 of us in the boat, 8 hours on the water, 6 fish total. No muskie, 2 smallie's on NW no wake on plastics, 2 LMB on south end just outside of the no wake, other 2 LMB fishing the docs around fingers. Very tough fishing I'd say the lake is more for recreation as we were getting buzzed by every speed boat and jet ski imaginable. Talked to a few other anglers on the water who all gave same report fishing very tough.
6 hours (7am-1pm), one LMB to show for it (14.5"). Absolutely nothing even nibbling on the north end fingers, marked a bunch of fish on the south end, only got the one bass to bite. Most fish marked were either one foot off the bottom, or mid column in 25-30' depth. Water level appears to be only about one foot low from normal, 77-78degs north end, 80-81degs on south end. Something in the southern no-wake channel bit off my favorite purple/white XPS 3/4oz lipless crank... offering a $100 bounty on his head, (upon return of my rattletrap! It'll have tooth marks near the lip area, and a tweaked front treble from a 50+ Musky 2 weeks ago) LOL !!
The lowering of the lake started yesterday 7/26/16
Sounds like they will be lowering the lake around a foot max.
Repairs are being maid to the dam. As soon as project is done they will fill the lake back up to normal pool a.s.a.p.
Hope this helps
