the down side to low and clear is the return of the algae all over the bottom.

nice to be able to go almost any where you want to, for a change.

After pretty much beating the banks since mid march it's nice to be able to wade/fish mid river structure, it poses a little more of a challenge. 1.2 and another foot of visibility would be sweet, but it won't take long for the moss to flourish.
Nice fish, looks like the wind wasn't as bad this morning vs this afternoon. Any surface activity on the flat in front of the island?
Fished 6-8pm, lower park. All fish 11-13" and a couple of walleyes the size of a pringles can, deeper pockets below riffles. Threw mainly plastics on 1/8oz hook. Wading on those rocks is rough on the back!
