Water temperatures in most lakes have cooled to the lower 70's.

Channel Catfish - Fair: Use cut bait or dip baits fished on the bottom in areas along shore with rocks or near the dredge cuts if fishing by boat.

Largemouth Bass - Fair: Cast lures along shore and docks. Many areas near shore have only sparse vegetation patches present with plenty of casting opportunities. If fishing in areas with heavier vegetation use weedless lures.

Walleye - Fair: The walleye bite is hit-or-miss. Anglers need to adjust some methods to fish in areas that have vegetation. Pick up fish along the dredge cuts with crankbaits or bottom bouncers. Use planer boards to pull crawler harnesses just above the weedlines. Try jigging or slip bobber fishing in the deep areas of the dredge cuts where many areas are free of vegetation.

Water clarity is roughly 1-2 feet.

Channel Catfish - Fair: Use cutbait or dip baits fished on the bottom along shore and near rocky structure.

Walleye - Fair: Pick up fish mid lake while trolling along the dredge cuts using crankbaits or bottom bouncers. If fishing the dredge cuts that have vegetation on the bottom us planer boards to pull crawler harnesses along or just above the weedlines. If fishing from shore, try using a leech or crawler fished under a bobber in areas with rocky substrate.

Water temperature is around 80 degrees. Water clarity has lessened this week due to an increase in algae growth.

White Bass - Fair: Fish are being picked up while trolling along the dredge cuts with crankbaits and spinners with crawlers.

Largemouth Bass - Fair: Pick up largemouth bass pretty much anywhere along shore in areas with vegetation and along docks using traditional bass lures or weedless lures.
