Walleye fishing has noticeably improved since 4/26/16. The full moon is gone and our walleye fishing has picked up with the beginning of the “Walleye post spawn feeding frenzy”. Now the fun begins! Soda, Long and Crescent lakes are producing good walleye and quality smallmouth bass. Warden Lake had a good opener as well as Canal, Windmill, Heart and the Teal lakes. Now all the seep lakes below o’sullivan dam are open to fish.
