Anyone seeing any signs of mayfly hatches yet? If not, any idea on when it will happen?

Tipup- Cant give you an official number on water temp, but I would say it was right in the mid 60's depending on what part of the chain you were on. I noticed quite a bit of grass and pads in many areas. It is going to be a warm week there so I would assume both are going to change a decent amount in the next few days.

Tip-uuup!

The boys and I are planing a trip to the chain next week and I'm hoping someone can tell me what the water temps are and weed growth are. It will help with planning. Thanks.

Was able to catch a lot of nice bluegills on both Saturday and Sunday. Most were in 2-4 feet of water, but were not on beds. Just kept a few for a meal. Structure was the key. Had a bonus walleye thrown in as well. Great weekend on the water

Your best bet on info will be to contact the local Bait Shops. Send out an email asking for a bit of info and then stop in and support the local business when you get there. Hard pressed to get intel out of fishermen on here, but the guys at the shops will typically lend some info to you. Good luck and enjoy the Chain.

Headed up this weekend to do a lot of fishing (hopefully). Trying to get a feel as to what stage everything is at due to the goofy weather. It seems the reports on the Oneida County page are all over the place. Ive noticed there have been some very cold nights up there. Anyone have guesses on when the bluegills should be shallow or are they now? Crappies still in shallow? Usually spend time on PG, Long, and Townline looking for panfish. Looks to be a warmer week so Im hoping it should be really good by the weekend. Thanks for any help and will definitely post with reports.

FISHING REPORT
5/11/15 8:36 AM CST
Fished with a group of 7 other guys from Friday evening through yesterday morning. A LOT of fish were caught. We spent most of the time on Big Fork, Medicine, and Little Fork. We did get a few on Fourmile and Big Stone as well. There were easily 200 walleyes boated. A few nice crappies, some perch, rock bass, and the occasional bass and pike. Most of the fish seemed to come from some sort of off shore structure in 12 to 20 fow. Mid lake humps and extended points surrounded by deep water were better. Not much going on in shallow water until late evening but the fish were smaller the shallower you went. We caught fish on a variety of lures and baits. 1/16th and 1/8th ounce jigs with crawlers and fatheads produced the best. A few on plastics, #5 and #7 ripn raps, and #10 husky jerks. Slip bobbers and drifting lindy rigs worked too.

The water temp throughout the chain seemed to vary on Saturday morning from the upper 50s on the bigger lakes to 63 degrees on the north side of Fourmile. By yesterday morning everything had leveled out to around 59 degrees after a cool night on Saturday. There was some limited new weed growth in water from 8 feet and shallower.

I know this chain of lakes isn't normally a large producer of big fish but, I was a little surprised that we never boated a fish over 17 inches. Most were in the 10 to 13 inch range. Normally I have no problem getting at least a few walleyes on every trip over 20. Not this weekend though.

Once the weather stabilizes and the weeds start to come up more the fishing should get a little better for a few bigger fish. Tight lines!

Fished on Friday afternoon 5/8, some luck with crappies in shallow brush piles. Light tackle with live bait. Friday night caught a number of small walleyes in 5 - 8 fow. The fish were biting very light. Ran the race in ER Saturday morning. Fished Saturday afternoon. Caught some panfish real shallow around some stumps. Cant get back on the water for another 10 days or so.

Coming up this weekend with a group of guys for our annual spring trip. I come up there all the time. They usually only make it up a couple times a year. Used to have family that lived on Big Fork.

Can anyone tell me the water temp on the chain? Primarily big stone, medicine, big fork, and fourmile? All I'm interested in is the water temp and how long it's been at that temp. Thanks!

Stopped up for the opener and got to fish for a half day. Didn't have a functional locator so no water temp and had to fish "the old fashioned way".

Spent most of my time on Island tossing a #05 Rippin' Rap. Caught a 35" musky, 2 walleyes (1 just over and 1 just under 14") and a 25" pike. Not bad for a pleasant afternoons' work.

The musky came of the flat on a point with emerging weeds in about 9 FOW, the walleyes both came out of fallen wood (@ 1:30 pm) and the pike from a shallow shoreline.

Lots of boats anchored in Long lake off the hole to the left of the entrance from PG. Didn't see that they were doing much catching and one boat "raced" me to a blow down off Dr. Point, ostensibly to fish crappies I'd bet. They were catching some fish but I couldn't see size.

Good luck all....
