Went out Musky fishing weekend of Aug 2nd. We used some top water baits had 4 strikes 2 in morning and a double strike in the evening fishing the shorelines. Caught a few bass near cribs in 13 ft of water one worms.

Fishing was good this weekend over the 4th. Multi species catches using half crawlers on a harness was the ticket over flats 10-15ft. Several big channel cats, Walleye 12-15”, smallmouth, crappie, perch. There was a mayfly hatch starting which normally isn’t good but in this case I think it helped.
Just moved up to the area. Interested in finding a good catfish bite. Is it better for cats above or below the dam?
I made it out Saturday, muskie did not show themselves but I had a few pike and aggressive smallmouth attack my large rubber baits. Catfish were biting pretty well too.
What I meant by that was I have never personally caught anything other than catfish, but yes it does go without saying...lol
I will be out Saturday and likely mix it up fishing a little muskie for the opener and try some crappie action with my son. Good luck!
As disgusted as I am to admit I have not been out on the water yet, but!!! I plan on heading out this weekend and will gladly post a report. And this is hearsay but a few people I know have been doing pretty decent in transition areas from deeper water into shallow (ish) 13-18 foot range should get you guys started at least. Good luck!!!
How has the fishing been on the flowage? I'm planning to head up in about a week. Are the panfish out , walleye still hitting and how is the Musky action?
It's part of the river system, you kidding me!
Ok thank you
