Anyone know the lake condition with all the rain this week? Any restrictions or anything?

I did fail to mention I released the walleye. Alive and well.

I only ever keep 15 crappies total per season and nothing else. 

All catch and release.

Correct...you may keep 2 walleye from 15 to 18 in. May want to quickly revive and release the 20 in fish.

Mr Musky,  I believe the size limit for walleye on Yellowstone doesn't allow you to keep a 20 inch one. 18 is the maximum

Thanks for the replies!  My wife and I have been "Drift" fishing from the boat lately and have caught mostly catfish.  Most in the foot long category but we release them since neither one of us care for the taste.  We hook on half a nightcrawler so that it goes through the water in eel like fashion and let the wind blow us across the lake.  We've occasionally picked up a crappie or two but nothing with much size to it.  Mostly catfish and even though they're fun to catch, we'd like to catch something we want to eat. We start in the middle and let the wind blow us towards the dam or vice versa if the wind is from the east.

I caught quite a few along the rocks At the dam this morning. Nothing big. All on nightcrawlers.
