Rating - Good   

Tuesday, Dec 01 2020
October lake levels fluctuate two feet. In September and October, Sunset Marina is the only public boat launch available to power boats. Water temperatures decrease in the fall. You will find good numbers of Largemouth Bass and Smallmouth Bass. Largemouth Bass are often located near woody structure.. Smallmouth Bass tend to be scattered throughout the lake and gather in rocky areas. Bass anglers often have some of the best fishing in October. This time of year, Walleye and Yellow Perch tend to gather in the middle of the Lake. Ices Ferry Bridge fishing access site is a good area for shoreline anglers. You can catch both Walleye and Yellow Perch at Ices Landing. You will find Channel Catfish in the lake. Crappie and other Sunfish are moving closer to shore. During cold weather in fall, minnows can be fished around downed trees. Fishing in the tailwater area just below the dam provides excellent fishing opportunities for Walleye and Sauger during the fall.
