Calm and clear…
When talking with the guides this last week, they said, “find the calm and the clear water and you can catch fish anywhere. That certainly has been the case. The shiner run continues in the River and most anywhere, especially in the 18’ depth, from the International Bridge to the Gap will put you on the walleyes. Head north towards Garden Island, Hay Island or Little Oak around the 25’ depth, throw your line in that’s tipped with a jig and a frozen shiner and you will catch walleye. Gold, pink or white are the hot colors. The water temp is currently at 47.7 degrees. Temperatures forecasted for the week range from highs in the 40’s and 50’s to lows in the mid-20’s to low 30’s with winds ranging from 6-12mph.
