Fishing is good to great. Anglers are catching Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass, and Walleye. For shore anglers targeting trout, try using garlic trout dough bait, or a nightcrawler with corn fished 12- to 24-inches off the bottom, 36- to 48-inches under a bobber, or 3- to 4-feet behind a casting bubble - filling the bubble completely with water to allow your bait to slowly fish the entire water column as it sinks. For shore anglers targeting Smallmouth Bass, try using 4- to 5-inch stick/wacky soft baits, or craw/creature softbaits fished using a finesse rig such as a Texas rig, Carolina or wacky rig. Brightly colored spinner baits and top-water crankbaits can also be effective. For boat anglers targeting trout, try trolling at a speed of 1.2- to 1.4-mph targeting the 15- to 20-foot water column using pop-gear with a pink or purple squid rig tipped with a worm or maggot. Also, try trolling hard baits such as Luhr Jensen Krocodile or Needlefish spoons, Acme Kastmasters, Dardevle spoons, Rapala Original Floating Minnow, or Yakima Bait Flatfish crankbaits. For boat anglers targeting bass, try using those methods mentioned for shore anglers - casting toward shore and then slowly retrieving, working the bait back towards you along the bottom. For walleye, try these same methods and technique or try vertical jigging using these same baits or brightly colored 3- to 4-inch curly tail jigs. We recommend anglers targeting rocky drop-off and shelf areas. For anglers targeting Walleye, try using a 3/16- to 1/4-ounce jig head with a shad or minnow soft swimbait hooked through the side of the swimbait and either tipped with nightcrawler or scented with a fish attractant. We recommend anglers work the bait along the bottom, periodically jerking or popping the bait to give the bait more action.
