cooler temps, cloudy skys, no fishing pressure should make for a good walleye bite, wrong. 3rd day of lookn for decent fish caught 1 fish at 18inches in 3 days. Picked up 8-9 small ones on deeper weed edges on twin bear. Anyone hear reports on other area lakes, no new posting on owens or long lakes. mite relegated  to become fultime bass and musky hunter. Can only eat so many crappie a week.

The fall bite is picking up. Surprisingly got a mess of big crappies, enough for a couple of good eats, in a matter of half hour just floating around some of the deeper wood along twin bear campground. Usually by pass this area because so heavily fished. spent rest of day hunting walleye, this is becoming actual work on the pike! picked up 3 smalls and a 22incher by channel heading into busky. not good for almost 4hrs fishing. Eagle wasnt any better, shut out there, but had fun hooking into 2 musky by mistake, not big ones but still exciting. good luck

I've had some good success on Hart Lake just off center of the hump on the south end. Jigging 10-15' deep in 23' deep water over weeds.  About an hour or so before sunset they start lifting off the bottom. I catch mostly nice size crappie and a few small gills with a red and white jig and a slip bobber.

I only keep enough for a meal if any at all. (I love catching fish, but I don't enjoy cleaning them!)

nice to here john can catch fish, maybe i might have to hire a top notch guide to catch fish, cause i sure am struggling lately, other than nice bass rest of fishing tough. Back  to the links soon i think.

I've hired both Josh Teigen and Jeff Evans.  They've both said Gillespie is actually a talented fisherman...

Other than some great bass fishing, things slowing down bite wise. Nice not to see any film crews scouring the lakes this week, im sure gillespie will be back soon for his monthly visit, maybe he should move his headquarters up here? just a thought, does anybody think this guy could actually catch fish if he didnt  fish with the best guides in area? Once i like to see him on his own, might take a little more than 2 days to make show though, lol. takn break. hitting the links for awhile.

have been using dry flies, appprox. 6-7ft behind a small round bobber for longer cast, and panfish poppers(small floating wood poppers size of dime with little rubber legs and a feathered hook made by shakespear) find a calm deeper weed bed 8-12 ft before dark and have fun.

I'm a little sheepish to admit, but I am not sure I know what you are talking about with "flies or poppers". Can you be a little more descriptive? Dry or sinking?
