FISH FRY: The fish fry this year was real nice. Not as many people as last year but a lot of them were out on the water or had other holiday engagements.

I want to thank all those who helped out with it. It gets a little easier each year with all the help. I was thinking maybe next year we would change the date.

If anyone has any suggestions as to having it another date, since this was a holiday weekend, please let me know. Any suggestions are welcome. I have had a lot of people say the week before would be nice.

PERCH: are out in 54' to 63' ft of water. Boaters are picking them up straight out of Walnut and also west of Trout Run.

Ten year old Jamie Space from Erie came in with a 1 pound 6 ounce perch for citation. Her dad said they went straight out of Walnut in 60' of water.

WALLEYE: are in 68'-73' of water. Caught trolling with worm harnesses from Elk Creek east to Trout Run. They seemed to have moved out into the trenches. They have been tougher to catch lately too.

Mack Didomenicus, age 10 of Shaler, brought in this 7 pound 6 ounce walleye. It was caught west of Elk Creek in 68' of water.

Marc Knapp, age 13 of Lake City, went out on (Kojak) Barry Kovatch's boat. These ones weighed in at more than 10 pounds each. They caught eight walleye in 60' of water.

STEELHEAD: are out in between the first and second trench. A few stragglers have been caught in the creek but there are only a couple in there. The main run doesn't start till late September to middle October. Water temperature has to be around 64.


I had an e-mail asking when the holes in the creek will be dredged. I couldn't reply to the e-mail because of an inaccurate address. I asked my boss and he said that this coming Monday they will be dug out.


Here are some pictures of the creek and lake after the winds blew so hard on Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

WARNING: I have had a few people tell me they are hitting something in the center of the channel. Please tilt lower unit up enough to clear any obstructions in channel. Also, stay close to the east wall when entering the channel from either launching or returning from the lake.

LAW ENFORCEMENT: I was told by Law Enforcement that shore fishing persons not pulling their lines all the way out of the water for boaters will be fined. Boaters are to either call the Office or Law Enforcement if shore fishing person doesn't pull their line all the way out.
