Cool late October weather has our surface water temperatures at the mid to low 50 degree range. These cold nights are making fish action improve as warm water fish instinctively feed to build energy for the winter months.
Don’t forget we have free dock fishing every Friday until Springtime. You still have to come into the store and get your free dock pass and car pass and you can fish until dark every Friday evening. The dock is still showing some nice Crappie, Perch, Bluegill, Trout and Bass.
Boat fishers continue to report good walleye action using blade-baits and jig’s tipped with a night crawler trolling the humps off the sand dunes. Jumbo perch up to 13 inches have been caught at the mouth of Frenchman’s Wasteway, the humps off the face of the sand dunes, and in the Lind Coulee arm of Potholes Reservoir. The North, Northeast side of Goose Island has been producing fewer walleye but the ones that are being caught are a very nice size.
Rainbow Trout up to 7 pounds are being caught at the east end of O’Sullivan Dam. Your best bet to catch one of these nice fish would be to use a Rapala Shad Rap.
