Nothing to report right now.
Yellow perch were being taken in the north end on fathead minnows. Landlocked salmon were being caught on the lake from the surface down to about 80 feet on spoons and stick baits.

Vertical jigging in 65 to 115 feet of water around the bluff area and the Branchport arm was still producing a few lake trout.
