Conditions : BLUEWATER LAKE: Fishing was fair to good using hot dogs, swim baits and top water lures for tiger musky. Night fishing was fair using hot dogs and stink bait for catfish and tiger musky. We had no reports on other species. The only open boat ramp is the primitive ramp located south of the main boat ramp. The surface water temp was in the low to mid 50s. Anglers should be aware that it is illegal to use bait fish at this lake.

Mike Webb of Farmington caught a 44-inch tiger muskie April 10. He was using bacon. April 11, Julian Zamora caught and released a 39-inch tiger muskie. He was using a hot dog.
