In the Lake:
Trolling from the Rifle Range to Dealtown in approximately 40ft.-50ft. water depth, using both spoons and body baits, Chuck Irwin had 8 walleye and another gentleman had 13 the day prior. Gary Rogers was trolling SW of the harbour in 60ft. of water using body baits approximately 30 ft. down, and was able to bring 9 walleye into the boat.
Another Gentleman said that he was fishing with a friend in the lake just off of the point and pulled in 55 jumbo perch using both live and salted minnows – both types of bait were hitting equally well.
In the Bay:
With bass season now open, the bass are abundant in the bay and available to catch. Smallmouth are being caught in the opening of the bay beside the fish tugboats in the channel. Fisherman were out Wednesday morning and were able to catch and release about 20 largemouth each, averaging between 2.5lbs – 3.5lbs. The biggest reported bass catch that day was 4.4lb largemouth.
Nature Buoy Charters just come in with 4 steelhead and a walleye from the West between rifle range and Dealtown in about 40ft of water. Fish up HIGH like top 15ft.
Some boats went out on Thursday and caught a few Walleyes, they were fishing West of the rifle range in 45ft. Body baits off the planner boards were the best, they were fishing the top 25ft of water. One boat had two steelhead, off the riggers down in the 30ft range. The fishing is getting better with the temp coming up and the bug hatch. The weather this weekend look great,so they say.
