I fished for 6 hours May 19 on the public pier near the Krist gas station. I caught one fish -- a 14-inch bass. I was using slip bobbers with minnows in about 12-15 feet of water. I'm not sure why fishing was so slow. I thought walleyes might bite when the wind and clouds kicked up in the afternoon. Perhaps I was fishing too deep. I didn't see anyone on the dock catch anything though. Maybe the fish just weren't hungry.
Based on Big Arb... I'd say about 50*. I was on one of the deep clears last night and had anywhere from 45* to 52* and you could tell even with a decent jacket on when you were going through fairly cold water.

We took a group to fish in the high school tourney last weekend. Fishing was tough but we managed to do really well on pan fish. We caught a lot of 11"-12" crappies suspended at 22'-24' in 30 fow. When they came through in schools they were aggressive and would hit swedish pimples with no bait. If the fish was alone they wanted a wax worm. Perch were found off of breaks in about 15 fow. Small, orange rocker jigs tipped with a waxxies were productive all day.
