No, There are about 5 different creeks/drainages that feed this lake.  Ironically the water is very clear and clean.  Fishing has been great although this year, for me has just been good.  This is my favorite lake although I routinely drive 70 to it from the Chicago area.

These smallmouth have to be released they are to predictable and there are not a lot in this lake.  I am honest in my reports and I feel I give enough detail to at least give another angler a start.  I don't mind sharing some tips, but I'm not posting to much on here for them to get beat up and decimated by the unethical fisherman that unfortunately are out there.  P.M. for any questions.

Largemouth were on fire today!  I wasn't even fishing for them and I caught at least 20 although most were on the small side.  Good gill bite to with the overcast they weren't as finicky.  Targeted perch and I caught more then I could count, but most were only 6-8" all fish released today.  Decided to try a smallmouth spot and first cast I hook a big gill at least 9".  As I'm reeling in the gill I notice two big smallmouth following my bluegill all the way to the boat.  Smallies are usually pretty boat shy, but these guys didn't care that I could see them plain as day.  I quickly released the gill and flipped my craw back in and boom, fish on.  Only one smallmouth today, but it was a dandy at just under 19".  The other smallie that was swimming with him was even bigger.  Would love to see the size of the pike that left the teeth marks on him.  Just so you guys know I'm using tiny plastics for perch and that's what these bass want.

Fished for a few hours this morning targeting perch.  Found a few good ones from 9-10 1/2 inches kept,  but not the large schools I have been finding which is fine because the big ones hang out in little groups.  Caught numerous big gills and pumpkin seeds, kept one 9 1/2 inch deep hooked gill and released the rest. Caught a few huge rock bass.  Caught many largemouth, a few good ones 16-17".  Fished smallies for a little bit and caught 4 all in the same spot.  2 small ones, one about 14" and a good one I'm guessing at 17 or 18".  Been catching smallies everytime I target them for the last month or so.  Perch are eating crayfish and snails in their bellies.  I cast crayfish baits on a very light jighead to locate them then fish minnows.  All bass and gills/pumpkin seeds come of the craw along with some perch.  Minnows clean up on perch after I find them.  You have to be stealthy on this lake, the fish I go after require long casts and finesse lures.  Perch can be caught close to the boat though.

Late report from Friday AM. Fished from 6:30 to 10:30. Big difference from my last trip in late Sept. Water temp only 63 and lots and lots of floating crap- dead weed strands and algae scum. Had trouble finding clean water to use surface plugs. Only got 4 or 5 and biggest was only 14”. Probably toughest trip for me on Powers this year and not sure I have ever seen it in worse shape. Used to be almost as clear as Geneva but not anymore.
