Paul Russin and John Sheptak of Butler PA came in with some Walleye. Johns made citation size at 9 pounds 9 ½ ounces. It was 31 ¼ inches long and had a girth of 17 ¾ inches. He caught it on a night crawler. Harness color was Gold. He caught it West of Walnut in 75 ft of water in the first trench.
|Al Banaszak (Big Al) and Barry Kovatch (Kojak) came in on Big Al’s “BAHA CRUISERS” boat with a couple nice sized Walleye. One was 10 pounds 2 ounces. They caught nine altogether. The lake was very rough today and they were one of about 10 boats that went out. They caught them West off Elk Creek in 65 ft of water on a Renowski. Blue was the color for them.|
The lake has been really rough this week. The only day people were able to get out was Wednesday. Because of the rough waters, the fish scattered and no one could find them. Perch, Walleye or Steelhead were all scattered. The only thing anybody was catching were Silver Bass or White Bass.
The lake is supposed to be nasty till Sunday than the waves are to be 1-3 ft building to 2-4 ft. Monday and Tuesday are to be 2 ft or less so that might be a better time to think about going out. By then maybe some of the fish will have schooled up again.
The creeks are low and clear. I have had reports that one or two Steelhead have been caught but they must have come in from the rough waters. The water temperature is 70 degrees and we haven’t had any rain in quite a while. I tell people the middle of October and the beginning of November are the best times to catch Steelhead. There might be a few stragglers that come in here and there but the “Big Run” usually happens later than this.
