Starvation

Rating - Fair   

Tuesday, Oct 19 2021
Current water levels are at 61% and rising. Water temperatures are in the upper-50s.Walleye fishing has been good this week, despite being hit or miss since early August due to flood waters moving through the reservoir after each storm . Rainbow trout have moved into the deeper depths, and fishing for this species has been fair this past week. Smallmouth bass fishing is good, find the habitat and you will find the fish. Rock piles and weed bed edges are great places to start.Our walleye tagging and population estimate is now complete. Any orange-tagged walleye caught can simply be harvested or released with no reporting needed. Thank you to all the anglers who reported tags back to us. Our population estimate for walleye was significantly higher than 5 years ago (in 2016 there were 13,100 and in 2021 there are 21,557 walleye lake-wide). There is an over abundance of small walleye in this system. Current regulations allow for a harvest of 10 walleye, with only 1 being over 24 inches long. Please consider helping this fishery by using selective harvest techniques for fish 9 to 14 inches long.
