Conditions: Cloudy
Fished the Willow Wed night from 3-8pm. Water is down 4'-5' since I was there in July. Water temps were 70°-73° in the areas I fished. The walleyes I got were undersized, but kept some decent panfish. Everything came on Shad Raps in 8'-10'.

Rain rain rain! Fish the windy points if you can. Its been hit or miss but if your lines are at the bottom when they're hot its quick action. Is it too early to be buying these ;-)

was out last Friday noon to 7pm. Wind was pretty still and we were using golden roaches early on a bare hook. Caught many NP with some crappie and a few panfish, no walleye at all. About 6pm started working rocky reefs and points with rattl traps and topwaters...then the rising moon started coming up. With the sun setting, bingo!...the switch was flipped. 6 SMB over 18 up to 21, even an undersized but beautiful esox. Many smaller bass too. Right time, right place.

Hey Canoe, we caught a lot of short walleye last week drifting leeches on Lindy rigs, 8-14 FOW on drop-offs. Slow drift, maybe .6-.7MPH hard to control with a canoe unless only one of you fishes. Fun to catch the walleyes but we only caught shorts doing that. The keepers came trolling Indian Bay with crank baits.

Also found a variety of fish on the weather side of reed beds, smallies, perch (all itty bitty), rock bass, short walleyes, northern of course. Nothing for the fry pan but fun and easy to catch with slip bobbers and live bait. They liked leeches better than worms.

Have fun, skeeters are back to manageable and we didn't find a single tick.

I'll get there this afternoon, canoe and campe till Sunday. Bringing along a buddy's son, 14. Never fished before. Always a challenge to teach fishing from a canoe. Probably start with shore fishing for panfish with worms on floating jig 6-12" from a sinker. Then try around 10' of water from the canoe for walleyes. Minnows, leeches, crawlers on jigs and jigs with bobbers. If anyone has any advice I'd welcome it.

Hitting up the Flowage this week. Fishing from canoe. Any advice? Should I use topographical maps to find drop offs?

Got a mixed bag again on the Willow today. Easily caught over 20 walleyes from 10"-18" with the majority being smaller. Lots of pike, but no smallies. Jigged crawlers along with slipbobbers in 6 fow in areas being hammered by the wind. But ended up trolling raps in 10-12'. The fish lit up from 6-8pm.

Skeet report for thurston: yes they've let up. More like normal now. Could hardly stand it the last 2 times up (June).

Fishing report: after rain stopped this am, lots of short eyes and mixed bag of perch norts smallies incl one nice 19" smallie. Live bait in shallow water close to drop offs. They turned on, constant action for a few hours, then they turned off. Just in time for lunch. Will need to try something different this afternoon.

Thanks fishgodwi for the report. Sounds like the Bago program the last 2 months only in shallower water. Should you wish to compare Willow and Bago patterns gimme a call at two 6 two nine nine 3 zero one zero nine. Thanks, Scaleman
