FISHING REPORT 4/17/14

AWAGOOD MORNING ! FISHING WAS GOOD YESTERDAY. MOST ANGLERS DID HAVE TO WORK A LITTLE HARDER TO CATCH THEIR LIMITS OF WALLEYE. ORLEANS PARK HAS SLOWED DOWN SOME WITH SOME AVERAGE CATCHES THERE. THE WHITE ST. ACCEESS WAS FAIR. THE BETTER FISHING WAS IN THE FASTER WATER UPSTREAM. BLUEGRASS ISLAND, BUTTONWOOD AND UP RIVER THRU THE RAPIDS AREA TO JEROME RD. RIVER CONDITIONS ARE GOOD. THE CURRENT HAS SLOWED DOWN WITH THE WATER LEVEL DOWN TO 510' 11''. THE CLARITY IS IMPROVING EVERY DAY NOW AROUND SIX INCHES. THE WATER TEMP ONLY DROPPED OFF BY .4 DEGREES. ANGLERS WILL BE THROWING LIGHTER WEIGHTS TODAY MOST WERE THROWING 1/2oz, 5/8oz AND 3/4oz YESTERDAY. MOST WILL BE THROWING 1/2oz AND 3/4oz. MAYBE A FEW 3/8 IF YOU ARE USING 8lb TEST AS LIGHTER LINES CUT THRU THE CURRENT EASIER. LATELY THE COLORS THAT HAVE BEEN WORKING GOOD IS VARIED. MOSTLY BRIGHTER COLORS WITH THE WATER CLARITY IMPROVING. I WOULD SAY GO WITH YOUR CONFIDENCE COLOR. NEW ANGLERS USE WHITE, ANY SHADE OF CHARTREUSE, PINK OR ANY OF THE BIGHTER BERKLEY COLORS. STILL MOST FEMALES THAT I'VE SEEN ARE NOT SPAWNED OUT. IN FACT I BELEIVE WE COULD EASILY GET ANOTHER RUN OF WALLEYE BEFORE IT'S ALL SAID AND DONE. THE WATER TEMP IS ON THE COOL SIDE. THE RUN STARTED VERY LATE. AND I ALSO BELEIVE WE WILL SEE MORE WALLEYES THEN NORMAL IN THE MONTH OF MAY. WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE LIMIT OF WALLEYES ARE GOING TO BE IN MAY AS THE DIVISION OF WILDLIFE HAS NOT YET LET US KNOW. MAKING RULE CHANGES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEASON IS RATHER ODD. TO SAY THE LEAST. NORMALLY IT IS SIX PER DAY IN MAY. WE ARE HOPING THAT THEY ARE GOING TO INCREASE THE NUMBER TO A HIGHER LIMIT AS THERE ARE PLENTY OF WALLEYES. GOOD LUCK FISHING TODAY!
