The bass bite has been awesome the last couple of weeks. We have caught most of our fish near the main lake channels on point and humps. The drop shot bite has really picked up. Try using a Robo Worm or a Zoom Fluke Jr. The key to finding these summertime bass is staying close to grass or structure. I pay close attention to my electronics when scanning for grass and fish. This bite should continue over the next few weeks with some top water action starting to happen early in the morning.
The trout bite has been a little tough lately. The few fish that we have caught have been deep. Try trolling small crank baits ( ugly duckling size 7) in and around the southern portions of the lake. The Brown Trout bite should pick up over the next couple of weeks. Look for these fish to start showing up in the 20 to 30 ft depths on long points.
Yellow Perch
The perch bite has been great lately. These fish are in every creek in the lake. We have had good success fishing the grass beds and clay bottoms in the 20ft depths. Jigging and crappie minnow seems to be producing the most numbers. We have also caught some 16in Yellow Perch on a drop shot rig tipped with a worm. This pattern should continue for the next month or two.
