Didn't have much luck out there last fall. Anyone been out there lately fishing? Does it fish any different with the water level so low?

    It's been very tough this fall. Water is down 5 or 6 vertical feet from normal. I've fished a fair amount this fall, with very limited success. There are still a few bigs being caught, but they're few and far between.

    One thing I could share is, I have had no luck at all, north of the stairs. Seems to be flat and without much current up there. Gotta walk out a long way to get deeper than your knees.

    Good Luck!

    Fished friday night for about 3 hours without a single tap. The show seems to be over. Maybe Elvis never even entered the building this fall...

    Same results cranking your bathtub but better weather conditions. The decision is a no brainer!

    I might have one more trip in me, maybe next week. Temps and wind-directions look good a couple of nights.

    I've gone out about once or twice a week for the past 4 weeks along that stretch, and my only action was this past week (11/28). Seems to be a brief hit for about 20 minutes either side of sunset. Since the water is so low, I've been fishing from shore or with knee boots with floating crank-baits. The walleye strikes I've had are typically within 10-15 feet from shore (I've caught two or three smaller ones per night). Good Luck!

    Recent news. The last five trips have produced a total of four fish, but they were good ones. A 29" one night, skunked the next trip. A 30" the next trip, then skunked the next time out. Last night I got a 25" and 26" fish.

    All are still swimming. You have to put some time in, and gotta fish slow, but there are still a few out there cruising...
