Crappie Fair 7 to 16 inches Would try fishing off the public fishing dock and private boat slips using jigs and jigs tipped with minnows. Would also try around the 3 fish attractors. Recently added new cedar trees to the fish attractors, end of private dock and around the public fishing dock.
Saugeye/Walleye Good 14 to 26 inches Would try fishing off the East side of Leota cove, along the dam and along the south road bed using jigs and jigs tipped with worms. Did have reports of fish being caught trolling diving lures around the Dam and Monkey Island. Also, heard of some short fish being caught, therefore, remember the 18-inch length limit.
Wiper Good 15 to 28 inches Would try fishing around the mouth of Leota cove and Concrete cove using jigs and jigs with worms and/or minnows. The point just south of the swim beach might be a good bet also. Stocked 100,000 wiper fry in on 5-9-2017.
Catfish Fair 14 to 30 inches Would try fishing up to the west end using stink bait, liver and worms on the bottom. Also try using trot lines and set lines towards the west end.
Largemouth/Spotted Bass Fair 10 to 20 inches Would try fishing along the Dam, in Leota and Schoen's coves and up by the sand pit using artificial baits and crankbait's. Remember there is a 15" length limit on all bass.
