    Had the pleasure of fishing with the Mrs. and our son. Went out for perch and worked depths around 20ft. with small jigs. Perch were just feet above the bottom. Average length varied between 7-9 inches but all were very plump,it appears they are eating well. We all caught and released perch but more importantly,a great family outing.

    The lake is very cold, 49. Other boats on the lake reported some action around the island, although I did not get any hits. The water is high, about three feet above the mid summer low. I saw lots of fish on the finder, they are hanging on the bottom real tight. I am thinking the lake water needs to hit 55 before the fish wake up. I did notice a fly hatch on the surface.

    The lake has warmed to 55 degrees. The trout are very active at the north end of the lake. If you are looking for trout I recommend trolling between the island and the launch with a spinner, 4 grams or less, and a small piece of worm. I caught my limit in less than 2 hours.

    The lake is fishing great right now. Bass are very active around the south end. Worms are an excellent choice. I hooked a large bass trolling for trout around the old pier today. The old river channel that flows in about 17 feet of water is full of large trout. You can pick it up with a depth finder. It sits about 300 yards off the island.

    Fishin is great. The last two weeks every time Ive went ive limited out on trout. Use a green or red wedding ring with a one inch peice of worm.

    The crappie are around the pilons on the right side of the public dock towards the tiny island use a crappie jig single tail works best.

    Went out for a couple hours around 10am. Spinners, spoons, spinnerbait did not produce at all. Caught 2 small bass on a 2" powerbait grub in white and a single weight with about 2 feet leader. Fished the shore, both caught near the boat launch.

    fished from shore off the train tracks from 4-7pm. Was smashing rock bass all day from around the sunken logs. Used nothing more than a hook and worm wacky rigged. 20+ fish caught lots of fun.

    The lake is really hot!!!! I hooked a dozen trout in less than two hours. All in the 12 to 14 inch range. Fishing in about 20 feet of water.

    Trout were on the bite today. I braved the wind and rain and limited on 12 inchers. Green/orange wedding ring, 1/4oz weight got me 5 in 30 minutes. They were not biting when the rain was heavy, but when it cleared for a few minutes, BAM! Some have been saying the north end has been productive, but I had success on the southeast shore today.
