How is the green algae on the lake right now? How might it be a week from this Thursday.  Have HUGE family reunion at Northern Bay 19-23 and want to spend much time on the lake.  Any info on what to expect would be super.  Many Thanks!

Chris booked a half day guide trip for two people with me out "The Rock"

We launched the boat at 6 am from the Buckhorn Bridge launch and fished till 11 am. Water temp was 78.7 in the early morning and was over 80 by the time we left the lake. Wind was out of the south the entire trip.

We started the morning trolling cranks and boards in 8 to 12 f.o.w. on the Buckhorn side of the lake. Mid morning we jumped over to the east side and fished in 12 to 18  f.o.w.

Lake was very green on the east side, with the south wind a lot of the green was around Devils Island area and north up towards the train tracks.

Good luck, be safe!

Chris booked a half day guide trip with his mom and dad, with me today out on "The Rock"

We launched the boat at 6 am and fished till noon today. Chris wanted to learn a few spots out on castle rock and to learn how to troll with planner boards.

Water temp today was 77.8 in the morning, by the time we left the lake water temp was 80 plus, wind started out of the south/east. 10 am wind stopped till around 11:30 and picked up a little before we left the lake.

Today we started trolling cranks in deeper water 12 to 18 f.ow. mid morning we jumped around to a couple different areas in 8 to 12 f.o.w. to finish out the day! Just about all our fish today came # 5 flicker shads, few on # 7 flicker minnows and the rest on # 5 shad raps. With the warmer water temps the fish have liked the baits a little faster 2 to 2.2 mph has worked for us.

Happy 4th of July everyone!

Good luck, be safe

Joe from Mukwonago joined me for a morning on "The Rock". His wife Jackie gave him a gift certificate for the trip as a birthday gift. They have a camper at the County Park and he wanted to learn a few spots and tactics to use, along with wanting to learn how to use planer boards. We started the morning jigging and soaking dead rods with minnows and crawlers along channel edges, and finished pulling cranks behind boards. We boated 2 "keepers", 1 in the slot, a bunch of "shorties, crappies and sheep's head. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Just a water update. With Dams open and water flowing for multiple days, there is plenty of debris floating around. Keep your eyes open when boating as I have seen many large logs, sticks, etc around the lake. In addition, it seems that the warmer weather has brought on the algae bloom. The combination of debris and algae has made the fishing challenging.

Got out for a few hrs Sat afternoon & drove over to the Yellow River side from Castle Rock Cty Pk. Trolling was tough because of the debris. After a couple hrs. at Buckhorn Beach they let me stop by the fingers and drift for a little bit where it was more productive. No legals but had to measure several walleyes during constant action with 1/2 crawler & chartreuse jigs. Had to keep motoring out to deeper water but on the way up they were stacked.
