The water dropped fast here on the lake.  We are maybe 6 inches above normal today, so there are no more high water issues on this side of the lake.  The river is still high however so exercise caution when going out on the main channel.  The bluegills are primed and ready to spawn so the next week or so should be excellent fishing.  I am already seeing a lot come in with the average being 8-8 1/2 inches.  There are plenty around the 9′ mark but the 10s are tough to come by.  The crappies have slowed way down and I suspect most have moved out to the sloughs off of the main channel, but a few guys are still able to dredge up some nice ones.  Pike continue to harass panfishermen so if you are looking for some northern they are not hard to find.

Thanks,

Chad
