FISHING REPORT
Offshore fishing for bass has been very good lately, the panfish/perch bite has also been excellent lately. The extended forecast calls for hot temperatures with highs in the 80s and 90s. Most lake temperatures are in the the upper 70s or low 80s. Warmer water temperatures means that fish are under more stress. If you plan to catch and release, try to release the fish as quickly and gently as possible.

Walleye - Fair: Try using slip bobbers and finding weed lines.

FISHING FORECAST
Anglers will continue to enjoy another excellent season with good numbers of 14- to 17-inch walleye to provide plenty opportunities for consistent fishing during the upcoming 2017 season. Anglers will also note the influx of small walleye in the catch that with continued good growth, will sustain the walleye fishery in the next few years. Panfish anglers should approach the fishery with guarded optimism during 2017. Silver Lake anglers fishing the submerged shoreline timber in April through May will harvest bluegill and black crappie. Persistence and patience will produce nice catches of angler acceptable size black crappie and bluegill. Anglers will continue to catch the occasional large yellow perch approaching 12 inches. Catfish will continue to provide ample opportunities for anglers during the 2017 season. Anglers will be quite satisfied as numbers of large angler acceptable sized catfish will comprise the majority of the catch. Bullhead anglers will continue to “fill the bucket” at Silver Lake with good numbers of large plump fish that will provide quality angling during 2017. (2017)
