It's actually good when it's a bit high like this. Not so high that it's hard to make the turns back upstream

Got out Saturday mid day to try and locate some eyes.  Found some scattered schools at the first break lines in 16 to 22 fow.  Managed picking up 2 shorts all on shinners.  They didn't want anything to do with plastics, leaches or crawlers.  Fished very slow.  Also hit 2 northerns at the tops of these breaklines.  Water was very cloudy considering the normal clarity of this lake.

Still some musky at the damn.  Saw a real nice 4' laying right next to the launch pier on Wednesday.  I would really like to set up on the mouth of the river and catch her on the way back into the lake!

To answer the smallmouth question...I have better luck in the early morning hours, before sunrise, casting whacky rigged senkos along shore.  There are some tanks in that lake and they go deep after sunrise from my experience.

Fished Sunday and only managed 1 bass in the channel. Saw bass around the lake but no luck. Anyone ever fish smallies here?

You can find gills back in the canals on the south side of the lake. Real skittish though at 10 am. Use a tiny gold hook with a pencil bobber. They are biting real light, barely stand up the bobber. Saw a ton driving through the canals, but only hooked 4 keeprs in about an hour. 

Id guess fishing early morning or late evening you could boat a few more.

Fun to see all the largemouth and pike in there too. Muskys can be seen at the Okauchee/Oconomowoc dam, pretty fun to watch.
