FISHING: Walleye are being caught in 25 foot of water over the tops of trees near the middle of the lake, between Van’s and Sand Point. Although this is a good bite, remember that fishing over trees presents a hazard for snagging up your lures. So make sure to have a few extra on hand. Small mouth bass can be caught throughout the day on rocky points and the face of the dam. For the bow fishermen, carp have been present along the dam and in the shallows of the bays that still have water. They are also located in small pools that are no longer connected to the main lake.

WATER LEVEL: 3,227.4 ft elevation (47.3% of capacity) or 824,700 ac-ft Water temp at the dam is 73°. Please be careful with fires. Keith County is still in a partial fire ban. Fires must be in a pit and no larger than three feet.
