The weather has been great with lots of sunshine. Fishing has been great as well. We are still seeing big fish come in and lots of slots being caught. No one location has been better than another. Some boats are in shallower waters lakeside of Pine Island from 8 to 13 feet of water and doing good, and some boats have moved out further and have done just as well in about 19 feet straight out from the Light House Gap. Both locations we have had to pick through some slot fish to get the eater fish. Gold has been the most consistent color.
The water temp is still colder than normal, currently the river is at 58.8 near the surface, I am sure it is much colder the deeper you get. We are catching some burbot which at this time we normally don’t see because the water temperature has warmed up. Due to the long winter and colder spring temperatures the water has not had a chance to warm up yet. It has been fun to catch these burbot as it gives you a different kind of fight
We have finally gone full speed ahead into summer. The temperatures from now until Friday May 30th will be close to 80 degrees and we may even break 80. Saturday then looks to cool just a bit and we stay in the mid 70’s for a few days. It looks like plenty of sunshine coming our way with just a few scattered showers.
