Most small to medium area lakes have completely frozen over. Most large lakes are at least partially frozen over. No lakes currently offer safe ice for ice fishing. Area lake levels are currently low. The extended forecast calls for cooler temperatures which should steadily form ice.

The lake is currently 14 inches below crest. The lake is almost entirely iced over, but with only an inch or two. The walleye season is currently open.

Walleye - Good: Bite is hit-or-miss at dusk, but the day bite is improving. Many anglers have started to fish in shallower with slip bobbers along weed edges. Try spinners, crankbaits and long and shallow shad raps; try to find weed lines to troll or jig off of.

Muskellunge - Good: Crank baits, buck tails and rubber baits.

Yellow Perch - Good: Try small jigs tipped with a minnow. Sorting may be needed.

Area lake temperatures have been dropping consistently lately with many in the upper 40s. The walleye bite around the area has also been picking up. Almost all docks, hoists and courtesy docks have now been pulled out for the season. Most vegetation is now completely laid down so finding structure to fish around may be harder. Lake levels are also lower making launching a boat in some areas more difficult.
