About mid October, the dam is opened to lower the water level about 18".  Takes a week or 2 for the level to drop.  This minimizes damage to the shorelines during winter.

Once the ice is out, the dam will be closed and the lake will fill back up with a couple of good rains and the spring runoff.

Why is the lake so low?  Just fishing waiting for my boat to be winterized and upgraded, just caught a few small Bass, Green Sunfish and atleast 50 Perch eater sized nearly every single cast it was fun vs sitting in the show room waiting 3 hrs.

Sept 24, took 5-year old grandson, looking for blue gills. We found 4"-6" gills at the far end of the lake from the public launch, by the condos. We cast night crawlers with bobbers. Water temp 68. Previously this summer we were skunked 2 times. Lake is strange this year but at least we found some gills to have fun.

I fished last week Friday night 6-8:30.  Nada.  Tried a variety of approaches.  Maybe it's just me, poor skills or bad luck, but since the draw-down, it's been terrible for me.

I haven't fished it in over a month now. But me and my son did really good catching quality bass. We caught quite a few that were over 3lbs. Bass fishing was awesome in the spring here. Panfishing has been a little spotty for me. Spots that use to produce for me no longer do. Other spots that I didn't do good at in the past now hold fish. But thats fishing. Put your time in and you will find them. Fishing has been a little different this year there but they are still in there.Good luck out there

I haven't done much of anything out here this year.  Small bass here and there no pattern at all.  I usually fish deep here and outside of drop offs there isn't anything to fish off of anymore. Deep weeds are gone.  I have a few areas of really deep weeds marked and they are all laying on the bottom.  Obviously with the terrible water quality the deep weeds aren't getting the sunlight.  My guess is 3-5 years the water will be back to normal, or at least more than 3 feet of visibility.  It's like river fishing right now and I'd bet the fox is clearer that Lil m.  I've heard of drawdowns possible on other nearby lakes... In my opinion it's a terrible idea.  Ruins the fishing, water looks like crap and it's a short term solution for weeds. Does my harm than good imo.

Fish deeper than you think.  All my fish have been 15+.  Here is one of the nice walleyes from this summer.  22inches

I have only been out a few times this year but I would have to agree. Before draw down I was guarnteed to at least get some topwater frog action around decent looking areas. This year so far..dead zone. However, I did see people catching a few smaller bass around me  but nothing crazy, so could be a tactic issue too. I would have to imagine after a big change like that it may impact the fish this year, just not sure how. One thing I noticed is that before where there were alot more lilly pads and visible weeds and pockets, now they are all under water or maybe gone. That alone would make a change in their eating/feeding habits. I guess only time will tell. Ice fishing this year will be interesting too.
