  1. I am planning on going to WB tomorrow. Can some one tell me if the water level is still high? I heard that the Ravenna area got a lot of rain this past week

    Water level is down some from where it was a few weeks ago. Looks to be at about normal summer pool to me. Water temp 78.

    I was there Saturday till about midnight. Like triton mentioned it's down a few inches but that's all.
    No walleyes Saturday but the bass have turned on in the last week. All the 5-7' deep weedbeds near deeper water seem to hold willing bass. Crappie are spotty. If you are looking for crappie, after dark seems to be best.
    All my fish came on leaches or rubber worms/jerkbaits. Couldn't buy a hit on minnows.
