Weekly Weather

North & South Shore
Sunny to partly cloudy all week with lows in the mid to high 50’s and highs in the high 70’s to low 80’s.


One of our locals, Bruce Jennings, has been catching limits while trolling on the lake from the North Shore marina towards the dam off and on all week. The Day Use point at North Shore is starting to populate with anglers and we are getting reports of limits being caught using chartreuse or rainbow colored power baits. The “rockwall” just before the narrows produced a limit of trout last week. Anglers there reported using worms and flashers.


No reports of bass this week. If they are being caught, no one is talking.
