With the cooler spring air temps of late, the water temperature has fluctuated and dropped from the mid-60’s last week to the upper 50’s as of this writing. We expect a big jump over the next several days with much nicer, warmer weather coming! We are thankful for that.
The lake hasn’t had a lot of fishing pressure from anglers of late, but those who have been out have had some success! Bass have been biting very well in the shallows. This Saturday the 28th is officially the Bass Opener, so now you can keep your possession limit if you’d like. Crappies have still been biting well in 8 to 12 feet of water. Waconia Bay is a good starting point, along with the north side of Coney Island and the north shore weedlines. Speaking of the north shore weedlines, walleyes are worth targeting there after dark along with locations on the east side of the lake like the Clay Banks and by the beach. On the west side of the lake, areas like Harm’s Point and out from the Rock Dock can produce them too. Northern pike have been active as well in many locations, so don’t be surprised to latch on to one of those. We need the water temps to warm up for the sunfish to get more active into their spawn pattern.
We hope you have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend!
