Has anyone been on East Fork lately? is the Blue/green algae in bloom? any crappie reports?
Regatta, I thought that was just a weekend thing? oh wellI was out yesterday and the water looks really good. As burnj5 said there is a regatta going on so the whole west pool is "No Wake". It's been going on for a few days and I'm not sure how long it will be going on.
In general-- What size are the larger fish ? and are you able to pick up good numbers ?Saugeye bite well along the beach on south side
16" -20" west end of beach - use silver / gray minnow , such as the gulp on a very light jig head. throw close to buoys and let sink to bottom . Patience will pay off using this method.In general-- What size are the larger fish ? and are you able to pick up good numbers ?
I've caught a few below the spillway but not in good numbers and still mostly in the 16 - 17 inch range.
Good luck and good fishing !
Believe it or not, a friend of mine wades out to near the edge of swim area on the hottest sunniest days this summer and catches decent Saugeye in the middle of the day. I was surprised !If I can get an overcast day next week with highs in the 80's, I'll give EF a shot and try for some saugs and post a report. Next Friday looks pretty good with the high only being 79. Might try then.
You probably didn't miss much, we had 3 1/2" of rain Saturday morning and the lake is rising. The lakes went up a foot this morning just in the few hours I fished.Well work got in my way of fishing East Fork this weekend, I will try this week when this work stuff is over
I agree - and for the numbers they have been stocking one would think they would be easier to track down.Glad to hear they caught that crook. Went fishing last weekend and attempted for saugeyes, caught none. The crappie, shad and catfish were stacked up thick just outside the beach on the southern end of the lake. Lots of people on them too along with the cormorants. I managed to catch a few catfish and crappie. No one was catching saugeyes when I was there. The saugs at EF are elusive.
