Fished the first two hundred yards of the river this morning. Really tough casting with all the weeds. Got 28"pike, 11"crappie, small white bass-blue gill and two bass 15"&12". Went home by eight.

Hit the river this morning, went as far as the old dam. Five northern (one small) pretty decent size plus three bite off's. One each-crappie, bluegill and rockbass. Eighteen and a half inch large mouth and two little ones. About three hours on the water. All fish still swimming.
Just thought you'd like to know that I caught an awful lot of Perch this year. In the river and out on the lake. Especially on the lake while I was trolling. I carefully released the Perch, size was 3 to 6in, to go and grow up. In a fair assesement, barring a catostrophic event with the lake, I would say that in 2 to 3 years, there will be some really nice Perch to be had! :)

drago10, there seems to be a great population of L.M. bass too. Have caught a ton of them 6"-8" this year. Of course, they are still swimming. Lots of small cat in the range of 8'-10' too. Catching many more gills too. Not so much perch though this year.

Thanks for the update. Did not see anything on the Lake Association website as informative as your report. Glad to hear the inspection is done and the gates are now closed.
One good thing about the low water is that Puckaway will freeze quickly once we get cold temps. Water was warmer this weekend than it was in late August.
we had a great hatch of young fish. The weeds around the south south are holding hundreds of thousand of small gills, some small bass, and perch. Good sign of things to come in the upcoming years.
Fishing right now is a mixed bag. About everything can be caught. Have had fun catching catfish in the evenings casting small spoons in knee deep water on the sand. Catfish are averaging around 20 inches per fish so a good tussel on med light tackle.
