Opener fishing reports?

Fishing was tough and people I talked with confirmed what I was seeing in the boat. We ended up with one. Cold water big waves, from the south and sun. Not the recipe for a great opening weekend

It was slow for me too. Hit several different points and windy shorelines for nada. I saw two fish boated by others in the 4-5 hrs I spent on the water

I did manage a chunky smallmouth this am

Zero walleye but northerns were plentiful. Not what I was targeting.

I echo the above reports. Slow on Leech, the water seemed to be just too cold.

I was up on the north east end. 47 degree water. Wind made for 3 ft rollers.

Fishing very slow.

I know some folks who fished hard on the south end and did very well.

buddy was up there out of the nw corner of the lake and they did well Saturday night and claimed everyone around them seemed to be having similar success as the nets were out. goes to show that the bite may be slow where you are but the fish are biting somewhere! just have to figure out where that is...

Was wondering if anyone has any advice for targeting walleye in about a month from now. My parents really liked Oak Point Resort
(in Steamboat Bay), and decided that's where we are going to have the family vacation again. We went during the last week of August last year and struck out on walleye pretty much, granted it was the worst week of weather I've seen on vacation in a long time. We are renting one of the nicer resort boats with a nicer graph on it. The few walleye we did catch were in Walker Bay and the Narrows trolling raps. (3 for the whole week). Thanks for looking and tight lines!

I came home a couple of days ago (Wed). The water temp dropped from 54 to 50. In two days we never saw a school of shiners. They
must have moved back out? Fishing was very tough. We fished
the Federal Dam end.
Good Luck !

Do yourself a favor and hire a guide at the beginning of your trip. If itís in the budget. Quick way to learn new techniques and whatís working during the time your up.

Ask questions. Most guides love to teach fishing and can give advise on what areas to target during your trip

We intend on hiring a guide this year. Last year some folks from Iowa hired one but only caught 1 walleye and 2 perch for a 8 hour trip. So we decided not to do that last year, and it's nothing against the guide (don't remember who). It truly was the toughest week as far a weather is concerned that I can remember. So I guess my question now is who would you guys recommend? I see Outright Angling, Leisure Outdoor, Steve Nosbisch, and Gary Trimble for that side of the lake all with reasonable rates. Getting excited less than a month away!
