The crappies had started biting pretty good, but with this cold snap they will be slowing down. Most guys were saying that once they found active fish they were catching between 10-14 inch crappies consistently. Once we get a few days of closer to average temps they will be picking back up. The bass have been biting really well if you know what to use. Spoons and Spinners seem to be key for them right now, heavily out fishing soft plastics. Stop in and I can show you what has been working!
The fishing pressure is really light right now on the lake. I have started to see Crappies being caught and it should only get better from now on. If you want crappies without the crowd now is the time. The northern are late spawning this year so if you are after a big one keep that in mind. Blackdeers and Lytles are both still slower than usual for this time of year, but the perch are biting by the dams still.
The Perch and Walleye are in full swing below the dams right now. I have heard mixed results from both Blackdeers and Lytles. This may be due to the water being lower then normal for this time of year. There have been very few people fishing out on the lake lately, but the Northern are biting as well as the Bass. The Crappies should be picking up soon, I will post as soon as I get word that they are biting.
