A jig and shiner minnow combination is producing walleyes, northern pike, and smallmouth bass along the shorelines or near docks. You’ll find more harvest-sized walleyes on the 30-foot main lake structure with a jig and minnow or Lindy Rig and leech. Many areas near restricted current flows continue to give up walleyes and pike as well. Crappie action has been “on and off” but some good catches have been reported in the shallows.
