Camped at RCSP on the water so this report is from 5/21  to 5/23. 

Fishing from shore is still pretty good as the weeds haven't surfaced yet. Would reccommend for any shore angler to get out pretty soon before those weeds take over. 

Caught pretty much everything but Bass which I was targeting which is really weird. Usually it's the other way around where I catch nothing but Bass here.

Fished 5/21 at Dusk and caught a 17" Walleye in the bay near the campground using a popper. Also managed a few fat gills near there using hook and worm.

5/22 Morning: Shore fished from 5:00 am to 7:00 am and managed a few Crappie near the dock on the north side of the lake using a small crankbait. Saw bass blow up everywhere around there and couldn't manage even a bite from them. Tried everything from topwater, senkos with the wacky set up, square bill cranks, and jigs. Not a single bass. From 7 am to 9 am rented a boat and tried several spots for White Bass/Wipers. Once again nothing and tried everything possible. Did head over to what I call Crappie bay on the north end of the lake where there's several fallen trees and Crappie were everywhere. Did manage a few nice sized ones. Tried for catfish and more eyes near the island but nothing. 

5/22 dusk: Went fishing for cats on the dock on the north end of the lake. Caught 2 Bullhead and a Channel Cat. The Bullheads were fighters and the Channel cat was an average size. 

5/23 morning: Went out at 6 am and again saw dozens of Bass Blowups but once again no bass. 

Not sure what the bass are biting on but hopefully next time will be more successful. 

Also, a few years ago tons of different kinds of Sunfish would flourish on the peninsula the campground is on but for some reason they are pretty much gone. I used to land 40-50 Redear, Pumpkinseed, Warmouth, Gills, and Green Sunfish per day several years ago. (all released) Still confuses me to this day on how they just disappeared cause that was a good childhood memory just catching them one by one. (I'm 20 now)

A question for usual Pierce Lake anglers: I've heard the rock island near the dam is great for Catfish and Walleye. What do I use and where do I fish for them near there?
