The area is getting exactly what was needed with a stretch of dry weather.  The lake is at normal weather with good water visibility and the river is dropping quickly.  The bluegill fishing has been excellent in the last week, with many reports of big healthy fish with little sorting.  The crappies have also become more active especially in the mornings and afternoons.  I expect that the coming cooldown will really kick them into gear.  Perch are still being caught here and there but it doesn’t seem like they are schooled up real tight yet.  I expect that to change soon!  Bass and northern remain active, some weed beds are starting to lay down and you are able to start throwing something that has treble hooks again!  Stop in for the latest report.
