General Comments

The lake is still ice covered except for some open water in the middle of the lake.  However the forecasted warm weather and sunshine should have it opened by next weekend!

I see some of you have visited the new Facebook page.  I've posted a bunch of photos: walleye egg collection, stocking and electrofishing of lakes that are not in the fishing reports.  Just click this link hopefully you'll LIKE what you see!

I October netting pictures are up, we have white bass now! Click on Banner Creek above fishing report to see some of these fish . Click on the fish species and it will take you to the updated Fishing Forecast Data.
