Fished Pokegama opener morning.

Found some crappies, but could not find a walleye.

Anyone catch any walleyes on pokegama latley ??

My dad, brother, and brother-in-law fished it on Saturday and Sunday. 9 walleyes Saturday and 0 on Sunday. They were all sub 15".

A buddy fished it Monday and zipped.

If you were going to fish it in the next couple weeks, I'd look to the Snake for better action. Troll cranks along cutout shores, pitch 1/8th oz. jigs with a ringworm (no live bait) at the shore side of trees, and if you can get there during the week work around the Cty. 7 bridge and the Insterstate 35 bridge.

Pokegama, Cross, and the Snake River do not give up walleyes without a fight, but they're there.

Uncle bill, any advice on what was working for the crappies? Depth, lure/bait? Thanks!

I found a few crappies on the opener, near the weeds and it was best in the evening. I have never fished walleyes there so I would not know where to start. Does anyone have any tips for catching them? I am not asking for spots, just something to start with.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
