Water temps are 74-75 with a slight algae bloom. Smallmouth, while running on the small side, have been decent on chatterbaits, drop shotting, and pitching jigs with craw trailers. Start shallow along the rock dikes and gradually work deeper as the morning hours progress.

Went out yesterday, water temps up to 82! Caught lots of little stripers, one nice bluegill and a sheepshead. Water was very turbid, less than a foot of visibility. We were targeting walleye. Not a lot of boaters out, it was just way to hot.

Anyone have an update on water levels? How difficult is it to get out of the launch now?

Need to run the boat after some repairs and wanted to check it out here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
