New Event

Caught yesterday fishing with Bink's Guide Service.Image title

The lake level is 558.64. They quit generating for several hours last night but started again. It dropped about 3-inches in the last 24-hours. Surface temperature is about 86 degrees and has been stable for some time. The diving conditions change from day to day and the visibility is a lot dependent on the amount of sunshine. I got my two walleye yesterday morning but did not see nearly as many. They have a way of packing up and leaving to parts unknown this time of year but when you see the small bass fry about 1-1/2 inches long on brush, there will be fish there. As you go deeper from the bank, the water is pretty clear down to about 19-feet, cloudy to about 25-feet, and then clear again in the very cold water. The thermopcline is still just below 20-feet. I am seeing no fish past 26-feet and there is no fish in the deeper brush in the cold water. I did see some decent bass in the warm water at about 15-feet down. As the water drops, I will have some very good brush piles come into play. The crappie have not moved in yet but should a little later. I am just happy to be able to be out there if for just a short time. It is busy here at Blackburns and I do not have much off-time. we need some rain and it looks like we will get some soon. Lake conditions are very good for swimming and boating and it has cooled down a bit. June has been very hot. Blackburns still has cabins for as low as $75/day and sizes up to 4-bedroon, two bath. Come on down. We will not charge you too much.Red meat fish are being caught quite easily near Cranfield Island early morning on the spoon.
