I am sure he meant in sept considering he posted it on the 22nd of august... I have a tag for the season and will be looking for one further north by bruce. In the river they relate to the deep runs in my experience. Couldn't say much about the flowage though, sorry.

Got out a few time over the 4th of July weekend. Lot's of sun and not much wind. Had our best bites towards evening. We lindy rigged or dragged jigs in about 10-15 FOW trying to find weed edges and edges of the channel. Ended up with 10 small walleyes (12-14 inches) and a few crappies. They bit on both leeches and minnows. Lake was very busy with boaters for the holiday.

Headed up to Pine Point this weekend, just wondering if anyone is willing to report on any adverse effects of the recent storms/ rain. Thank You

Fished a few hours Friday afternoon and then again Saturday evening after the wind finally died down a bit.

Targeted gills and found them. They were very shallow, 1-2 fow right up against the shoreline. Caught many that were keeping size, but only kept 3 larger ones for the pan. Some of the best bluegill fishing I've had on Holcombe in years in terms of size with the biggest being over 9" and many being over 8. SMB and perch were biting just a few feet further from shore than the gills.  Everything came on worms under a bobber set about 12" down. A small glow jig seemed to make a pretty big difference. Water clarity was very good were we got the most fish.

Got out a few time over Memorial Day Weekend. Saturday morning tried deeper areas of river channel 11-14 FOW. Caught one small walleye and blue gill  around 9:30am fishing slowed.

Saturday night we tried where the Jump comes in to the main lake. We pitched jigs and caught around 10 walleyes kept a few 12 -13 inch fish. Had two in the slot around 16 inches. Nightcrawlers also produced, but not as much

Sunday with the wind and threat of rain we fished off the dock. We caught a few more smaller walleye and crappies.

New Moon

Haven't been out in a few days, last chance to fish was right after the cold front moved in.

Crappie were a little deeper (12-16 ft) and walleye are still relating to shallower cover and structures. Bluegills should start biting around the weekend.

Good luck
