Fished the yellow river where it enters lake marked a ton of very large fish 26 feet down in 26 to 30 feet next to sand bar assuming they are catfish as all I caught was 3 to 5 lb channel cats. I assume they are staging to move shallower up the river. Few years ago my brother in law caught a thirty lb flathead of the state park beach. Good luck.

Fished three hours 5:45-8:45pm yesterday. Pretty strong wind from the east. 11 Walleye 12"-16" and 2 Northern. All are still swimming. Sorry for blocking the ramp for a few minutes, next time I'll pull onto the shoreline.

Fished the little lake after work. Water temp is 70-71. Nothing up shallow. Some cribs near shore has small gills and crappie. Some deeper edges and humps had scattered, small gills, crappie, rock bass. The only two decent fish I had were 10.5" - one had eggs and the other didn't. I'm not sure if they've spawned and are transitioning to a summer pattern or if the bigger ones are back in the creeks.
With these water temps I'd expect gills to be moving shallow.
Not a fishing report, more of a caution. The Paint creek bridge buckled on Sunday I assume. Yesterday while they were blocking off the road the police weren't letting boat traffic under the bridge either. I'm not sure if that is still the case or not but it might be worth thinking about before driving under the bridge.
