Warming water temps should help fishing
By George Langley

As we are now officially in summer, we need some more warming to increase the water temperatures. These recent cold fronts have stabilized the water temperatures, or even reduced them unexpectedly.

We would like to see some more weed growth, but know that will come with the warmer water temperatures. The lake levels are higher than last year, making many boat landings easier to use.

The lake flies have started to make their appearance,

Area walleye anglers deal with mayfly hatch
By George Langley

Walleye anglers must deal with the annual mayfly hatch and a change in fishing patterns.

Meanwhile, rain and some cooler weather have caused the water temperatures to drop a little, which was kind of a surprise for mid June. This might extend the smallmouth bass spawn a little, along with the bluegill spawn.

The rain, however, was another boost for the lake levels, which have now improved significantly on most lakes over the last few years. This is great to see, as the landings are much easier to use.

By George Langley

An absolutely incredible string of nice days has been interrupted by some rain, but even that is welcome now. A very warm end of May was just what we needed to get those water temperatures up to normal. There’s only one fly in that ointment — mosquitoes — and lots of them. Take repellant along anywhere outside or you will be driven absolutely crazy by them.

Water levels are pretty good now after that extreme winter with all its snow. Many of the spring flowers are in bloom and the woods are beautiful at this time of year. The water is still a little cool, but warm enough to swim in. Fishing in general has reflected the weather,

Walleyes moving to new weed areas
By George Langley

A massive change in the weather has made life worth living in the last week, with an absolutely beautiful weekend over the Memorial Day holiday.

Water temperatures are now up in the 60s on a lot of area lakes and weeds are starting to grow nicely throughout the area.

A huge number of people were up last weekend
