Fishing Report

Murky waters made fishing tough for some anglers recently. Temperatures are reaching into the 80s during the day and dropping into the 50s at night. Trout prefer hitting PowerBait and nightcrawlers in the early mornings or evenings. Action for bass and crappie has been decent, and a little longer lived through the day with jigs and woolly buggers working well.
