Any activities at red rock? Planning to come down and give it a try. Was there end of March and was cold with no fish.

Crappie fishing is slow with a few fish being caught in 3 foot of water or less. The fish being caught are good sized from 10 to 12 inches.

Because of the heavy rains fishing has generally slowed in the past week. Should really help it pick-up in the next week or so when things settle out.

White Bass - Excellent: The white bass bite is excellent trolling crankbaits with black/silver color combinations to imitate shad. The better fish are 15 to 17 inches.

Channel Catfish - Good: The channel catfish bite is good using fresh cut bait. White Bass - Good: Good reports are coming still from anglers that are fishing above the mile long bridge and up the Teter Creek arm. White bass are being picked by covering water and trolling crankbaits. There was excellent shad reproduction this year. On calm days look for gulls and/or shad breaking the surface. Wiper (Hybrid Striped Bass) - Good: Anglers fishing white bass that are busting shad are also hooking into good numbers of wipers.

The reservoir draw-down is currently in progress and the lake level may drop more than one foot per day until desired level is reached for maintenance work. Boaters should use caution as they may not be able to boat where they had a day before. Channel Catfish - Good: Catfishing on Red Rock is the best it’s been all year. Drifting cut bait is working best. White Bass - Excellent: The best white bass fishing right now is occurring below the Red Rock spillway throwing anything from jig and twisters, crankbaits, or spoons. Some white bass are still being caught at the Roberts Creek spillway, but decreased flow from Roberts Creek has slowed the fishing at this location.

White Bass - Fair: The white bass bite is still good right now below the spillway throwing anything from jig and twisters, crankbaits, or spoons. Crappie - Fair: Anglers fishing minnows under a bobber or small jigs below the spillway in slack water are picking up some crappie. Walleye - Slow: Anglers are picking up some walleyes below the spillway with jig and twisters or jig and minnow. Most have been on the smaller side, but some good fish are mixed in.

How is the fishing in August (land fishing)? My brother and I plan to come down in August 12 to do some wiper fishing, along with with some cats. Is it to late in the season for wipers? Also is there any camp ground that is on the lake, or close by? Any information would be helpful. We live in MN, we don't want to drive 5 hours just to get skunk. So again any information would be much appreciated. Thanks. laugh

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
