Fished for several hours on Friday, Saturday and sunday. We (2-4 guys in the boat) found the panfish to be setting up in the shallows. They were biting leeches, wax worms and portions of crawlers. Panfish have yet to spawn. Perch were biting as well, mostly on the crawlers and leeches. Caught one that measured 11.5 inches. Lastly, we found plenty of largemouth which were mostly active on leeches or half crawlers with a jig. Nothing of great size. We stayed shallow for most of the trip, fishing 2-8 foot of water in or near weeds. We were stationary, fishing with bobbers. No casting was done. Cool temperatures with frost warning overnight did not slow the fishing down. Stayed on the north end of the lake by the state campground. Crappies were supposedly biting on the southern end, but we did not venture down there. The state campground was almost full by Thursday. Launch was very busy, but only a short wait to launch or pull out.

Caught 7 bass and 1 walleye on a crank bait in the weeds. landed 5 of them and released all of them. I only fished from 5:00 PM until 7:00PM saw a few perch but no hits.

You can get to Upper Gresham from Middle Gresham, however, it can be difficult based on the size of your boat. Approximately five years ago I was able to go from Upper to Middle in my 14 foot, 15 hp boat with the motor up and assistance from an oar once or twice. I don't know if the water level or channel dynamics have changed since then.
I'm not sure if you can get to Lower from Middle or not.
I have caught a musky and many largemouth bass while musky fishing on Upper Gresham. With a topo map you should be able to find many spots that peak your interest. I have a friend who's family has a place on Upper and they catch muskies every once in a while too.
