September 27th Main Lake Water Temp. 72 Degrees
The Lake elevation is 3783.13 and the storage is 178,000 acre feet. The Main Lake is clear.
It was a pretty quiet week here at the Lake. Fishing pressure was light.
Walleye-There were a few reports of some success working jigs tipped with Nightcrawlers. Trolling and pulling spinners tipped with 'Crawlers also produced a few Walleye.
White Bass-They were slow this week. Look for them to improve as the Shad start to school again.
Bass-There weren't many reports this week. I had a few reports of keeper Smallmouth coming from 15 to 20 feet of water on soft plastic baits. Maybe I will know more after Wednesday, Kathy and I are going to try locate a few Bass. Of course, I may less than I think I know now!
Catfish-I had one very good report Monday. These were all Channel Cat that were in the 3 to 4 lb. range and were caught in 20 to 30 feet of water with Punch Bait.
