Week ending September 29th
This is our last week of the season open to guests; it is unbelievable how quickly the summer has flown by! Over the weekend the weather was in the 60's; the last few days daytime temperatures have been in the low 70's, with overnight temperatures in the 50's.
Walleyes are being caught in 25 - 30 feet of water along rocky shores and sand flats. Northern pike are being caught around lily pads and pencil reeds. Muskies are being found on rock points, reefs and areas with current. The water temperature is 57 degrees.
