Water temperature is down 14 degrees this week
What a difference a week makes. The water temperature plummeted from 68 degrees to a cool 54 this morning.
The walleyes are really moving now. Anglers are seeing more and more walleyes move in shallower and in bays and the river daily. Anchored and jigging with a gold, glow in the dark or orange jig tipped with a shiner in 25’-29’ feet of water has been working well along the shorelines to find a mess of walleyes. Trolling with crank baits in the main basin also continues to bring in some nice fish too. Sturgeon fishing is hot. Check out this 68 incher caught by Andy!
This is the last weekend for the “keep one” sturgeon season until April. Catch and release season starts Oct 1 and runs through April 23. A 4/0 hook, 2 ounce no roll sinker and a gob of minnows works well in deep holes. These monsters are a blast to catch. Come hook into a lunker.
