Water Temperature:81 Degrees about a half mile off shore of sand Island
(so just about the middle of the lake)
We are down about a foot from the last Lake Report. Although no one wants rain on a Sunday that rainfall kept the water level from dropping too much last week.
What Does This Mean?
Pay attention out there!
Stump Ally has only about q foot of water right now, so don't go through there! BUT if you approach from the Northville side there is 6-8 feet of water to pull up and enjoy the sand bars there.
Sand Island is much bigger now so there is a much bigger beach to hang out on and it doesn't feel as crowded.
The Trouble Spots: are now mostly sticking out of the water, so you can see them now.
Overall - don't be scared, there is plenty of water. We are lower at this point in time than we have been in the last 5 years.
If you are nervous, try something different. Go to St. Clair Point up to the dam and use that end of the Lake. There is an average of 40 feet of water up there and there are 14 miles of water between the point and the Dam.
**** Note - the Dam Tie up that was to be this weekend has been RESCHEDULED for Next Weekend.
Walleye: picking up
Perch : picking up
Northerns: have slowed down (as they always do this time of year)
Bass: Some rally Big Small Mouth Bass have been coming out of the lake. Mostly on Yona Senco WOrms. The trick seems to be in hooking the worm properly (and that is all I am going to say about that!)
Tip of the Week:Don't bring soup on the boat!
(Especially in a styrofoam container!!!!)
Get out and enjoy the time we have left! Only a couple weekends til the Ring-of-Fire
