What are the river and lake water levels up that way looking like so far this year?

Thanks,

Low. Very, very low.

Deerdragger is right. It is extremely low.

I live on a small (100 +- acre) lake that last late summer and fall was lower than I've seen it in my 16 years here. The rains last weekend helped, it's now back up to about what I expect to see for this time of year, having gained about 8-10 inches with the subsequent run-off (or run-in?). I suppose the topo around each lake affects this differently, but I'm pleased with how we're looking right now. PS- last night was my first time in a boat this year, I caught 6 crappies in the 10 to 11 inch range, and my buddy got zip, zilch, nada, skunked, but hey- who keeps track of who caught how many?

I am wondering if anybody knows what the access conditions on bowstring are? We usually use the public access on the north end of the lake, but a few years ago we were unable to get on the lake because of very low water levels.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
