The Bass bite has been great. Most of the fish have completed spawning and are hungry. The first couple of weeks of June will be a little tough with the water temp heading towards the mid 70’s. We have been catching most of our fish up shallow throwing plastics like Zoom Frogs up in pockets and around shallow docks. The Bigger fish seem to be hanging around heavy cover. With the storms we have had this year there is new brush everywhere you look. We have had good success with plastic works and jigs in and around the downed trees. The next few weeks is a big transition for the Bass. Look for these fish to go deep 18 to 28ft towards the end of the month.
The trout bite has been good the last few days. Most of the bigger fish are near the main river channels near the mouths of the creeks. Trolling small jerk baits and spinners has been effective the last few days. Bright colors and or Herring pattern baits have been working best. Try fishing at a depth of 14 to 18ft 3 mph. Yo zuri crank baits firetiger have produced a few bigger fish in the 4 to 5lbs range.
Yellow Perch
The Perch bite is picking up and should continue to get better over the next few weeks. We have caught some really nice fish in the shallows with jigs7 to 15 ft. This shallow water bite is short lived. Look for the Perch to head towards deeper water in the next week or two. June/July and August are the months to catch a mess of Yellow Perch.

Good Luck!
