The water temperature was 61º this morning. The river is up and moving fast. It is up at least 12"-16" from last Friday's posting. The river has crested however and is on its way back down. Water clarity is very poor with visibilities in the 6"-8" range with a lot of leaves and debris in the water.

Large or Extra Large Fathead Minnows are the bait of choice for most of our anglers. However, Medium Golden Roaches are still working as well.

White is still the color of choice for artificial lures. The 3" Powerbait Power Grub is still a favorite. The Charlie Brewer Slider 1 ½" Grub in Catapiller and White/Chartreuse are also hot items.

Smallmouth Bass are looking for relief from the current, try casting close to shore or any where the current breaks. Walleyes however, are staying in the fast current. Try drop- shoting or a jig head in the fast current.

8) It looks like it is going to be a dry and sunny weekend for a change so get out there and catch some fish while you can! :wink: Good Luck!
