Fishing action has picked up in some areas as water temperatures cool down. Most lake levels remain at or below crest.

Black Crappie - Slow: Look for panfish around patches of vegetation.

Bluegill - Slow: Look for panfish around patches of vegetation.

Channel Catfish - Fair: Fish near shore and anywhere with rocky structure or rock piles using a variety of dip baits, cut baits, and crankbaits.

Storm Lake has a daily limit of 3 walleye and all 17- to 22-inch walleye must be released; and no more than one walleye longer than 22 inches may be taken per day.

Walleye - Fair: Try in the main lake drifting with leeches or crawler harnesses along the dredge cuts. Also try trolling crank baits or bottom bouncing rigs. As the water temperatures cool down, look for shore fishing action to pick up as fish move closure to shore and start feeding more aggressively. Try twisters or minnows/leeches fished under a bobber along shore. The marina, near the outlet, and along the north and east shorelines are good places to try.

White Bass - Fair: Target white bass from shore and in the main like while trolling. Fish the marina, near the inlet, and north and east shore in the main lake. Use twisters, crawlers, or crankbaits.

Yellow Perch - Slow: Look for panfish around patches of vegetation.
