Walleye – Walleye fishing continues to be a challenge for many anglers as the mayfly hatch is in full swing on many area lakes. Successful anglers are fishing medium to large leeches under a bobber in 6-15 feet of water. Some anglers are having success pulling deep diving crank baits through the clouds of rising mayfly’s during the evening hatch.
Bass – Bass fishing continues to be outstanding for anglers targeting them. Anglers have been having the most success fishing with tubes, spinner baits, jerk baits and topwater poppers. Anglers looking to fish for bass should look for them on shallow rocky flats in 4-10 feet of water.
Pike – Pike fishing has slowed some for many anglers as the water temps drive the bigger pike deep. Fishing live or dead suckers under a bobber right off the dock continues to productive, but the bigger pike are being caught just outside the weedlines, close to deep water, with white spinnerbaits, white husky jerks or dardevle’s.
Panfish – Anglers have been catching full stringers of 10+ inch sunfish in the shallow weed bays, on night crawlers. Crappies have been located just outside the weed beds and are hitting on 1/16 oz jigs with 2” white twisters.
Stream Trout – Trout fishing continues to be a great backup for angler struggling with walleyes. Trout continue to be caught on small spoons, rapalas and lindy rigs. Angler have been simply trolling them about 15 feet down until they contact fish. When the trout are found simply troll around that area until a limit is had or the fish stop biting.
