Fishing Report

Channel Catfish - Excellent: Angler reports indicate fish being caught on chicken livers, night crawlers, chubs and stink bait.
Walleye - Slow: Fishing for walleye has been reported as slow. Trolling the dredge cuts with crank baits or live bait has produced fish.
White Bass - Good: Anglers are catching fish using shiny spoons like kastmasters.
