Crystal froze over last night, at least most of it did.  Some open holes, don't expect to get on it anytime soon.  Will try to post updates as conditions change.

Pump for the lake has been turned on.  Permit allows for 10 months of pumping versus the old 5 month permit.  Discharge tollerances have been loosend, so unless Roxbury creek floods or an algae bloom of biblical proportions occurs which both have tendencies to happen.   We can pump all the way up until August.

I've mentioned talks about a new boat launch being built at the old gravel quarry and moving the road behind it.  That idea has been scrapped and the new launch will be moved East of there near the pump house, as it is deeper there.  The land is sold the only thing preventing construction is lack of funding from Dane County.

Any advice for a first time trip out on the lake? Looking to take the boat and go after some bass. Anything would be appreciated.

The Parking lot is still 1/3 under water and you'll have to walk thru knee deep water for about 20-25 feet to get to a pier that is sitting pretty crooked and pointing to left.  Just checked last night.

Yellow, white, and striped bass are not the same species.

Yes Inland Sweep the white bass/stripers, or yellow bass if you want to be a "Technical Terry" have really taken over this lake.  Wouldn't mind catching a nice sized one, but they all are really small.

Has the white bass population really exploded that much in this lake? Haven’t fished it in a couple of years but man we never used to catch those in there.

This is new to me. I have fished this lake for more than 40 years and never caught or heard of one caught.  Anything to thin the Striper population is fine with me.  I have caught some Northern and was hoping they could manage the stunted fish.  Whatever it takes this Lake needs some help!!!
