Fishing for walleye was very good again this past week. Anglers did well using jigging spoons in 40-to-50 feet of water. Anglers fishing for walleye reported catching several white bass in the 1.5-to-2 pound range. Fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass was fair-to-good for anglers using crank baits and finesse baits such as small worms in shallow water. We had no reports on other species.
