June 14th, 2011

Water Level:

The lake has come down about 3' and continues to drop about 4" per day. It is currently at its normal level for Memorial Day Weekend. The larger islands have some beach and some spots to park, but the trap islands and the smaller islands remain under water.

Water Temperature:

72 degrees on the surface, 65 degrees about 5 feet down

So it is swimmable


The fishing has REALLY turned on in the last 2 weeks. Walleye are biting, Bass are moving off their spawning beds - so it should be a good opening weekend for them. Perch are biting as well.

The shallow water seems to be the hot spot right now - 15' or less. The GSLFF bass fishing tournament this saturday at Sport Island Pub proves to be a good season opener. Registration from 7am-9am.

Tip of the Week:

Make sure to check you bilge pump and batteries befor heading out on the water - so you don't sink!!!!
