This week has shown much improvement in reported fish bites on area lakes than over the previous weeks reported. The fishing seems to be on a typical summer pattern now: morning from safe light till about 9 a.m. is the best bite time. After that you will still find scattered fish moving out to either thicker vegetation in the shallows or deeper brush piles depending which lake you are on.

Lake Istokpoga is reporting quality fish flipping a senko or a jig along deeper outside reed lines. Also be careful navigating Lake Istokpoga as water levels are very low and there are reports of folks running aground.
