Water temperatures are still going down, dipping all the way to the mid to low 60s. Looking at the weather approaching that trend should continue. Fish are feeling the change and are beginning to move back toward the gap and the river. Shiners are starting to push into the river. A solid jig bite out in 30’-32’ is been forming over the last few days and that should only get better. Gold, chartreuse and pink jig tipped with a shiner have been producing well.
Spinner fishing can put fish in the coolers too. Hammered gold spinners with a crawler or minnow will get walleyes to bite. This can be effective out in 28’-30’ but 20’-24’ has been producing better for this style of fishing. Make sure you maintain at least .7 mph to keep those spinners moving!
The trolling bite out in 32’ is still producing so get it while you can because this bite typically starts to dwindle. Also be looking for fish to be push hard into the river if that temp keeps dropping and that river bite that we all love to turn on.
