|Black Crappie||Fair||up to 1.0 lbs||Tube jigs tipped with minnows in structure. These fish will be schooling as the water is cooling.|
|Bluegill||Fair-Good||up to 0.5 lbs||Small jig or spinner tipped with a hunk of worm around the shallow brush and weed edges.|
|Channel Catfish||Fair-Good||up to 11.0 lbs||Shad sides are great this time of year, fish them shallow on the wind swept banks. Late night fishing will produce some fish, better take a jacket.|
|Largemouth Bass||Fair||up to 3.5 lbs.||Large jigs or spinners worked slow around the shallow brush and weed edges.|
|Walleye||Fair||up to 3.0 lbs.||Stocked 300,000 walleye fry in April, will be several years before they are keeper size. Twisters off of the points either side of the pump house cove, fish are feeding like crazy now. Try a little drifting on a less windy day.|
|Wiper||Fair-Good||up to 7.0 lbs.||Large twisters or shad at the mouth of the cove on the east side. Lots of young gizzard being attacked on the surface!|
