Has anyone noticed that the weeds are dying already? How about that the redwinged blackbirds have disappeared? Whats up?

Much of the backwaters vegetation is on its last leg of the season. There’s much brownness and the smell of decaying plant life is ever present. Some lilly pads are shriveling. Duckweed covers every bit of water that lacks current.

This all started with our early spring and super heated days early in the year. I’ve seen that all my patters that worked last year were about 1.5 months ahead of schedule for this year. The lilly pads broke the surface almost 2 months earlier this season that the previous.

There’s been little rain which is making the waters oxygen depleted and I think it may be pushing fish in search of richer waters.

The only thing I have noticed was the lack of walleye activity the last few outings. I have really been scratching my head.

Probably bird flu!

Can walleyes get bird flu confused.gif

I see flows are increasing so I'm thinking the bite will soon return to the way it was a few weeks back.
