Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Keithe Sebelius: WATER TEMPERATURE- 57° SURFACE ELEVATION- 2292.06 ---- 12.24' below conservation

Currently, the water level is 3.18 feet higher than it was one year ago at this time.

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. Have not had any reports of fish being up shallow yet, however, they should be moving into the coves and shallows if the weather would ever straighten out a little bit.

Saugeye/Walleye Fair 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. Stocked 500,000 saugeye fry on 4-18-17.

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.

Catfish Poor 14 to 30 inches Would try fishing up to the west end using stink bait, liver and worms on the bottom. Also, look for them to come up shallow as they start feeding as the water starts warming up.

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.
