Black bass are still good and being caught with spinner baits, big lipless crank baits or jerk baits. Main lake and secondary points are producing the best results.

Walleye
are still fair and making the spawning run up the major rivers and creeks at this time.

Stripers are still good on brood minnows or swim baits. White and yellow bass are very good right now while jigging a small CC spoon or casting a hair jig. Most of these fish are up the rivers or staging to move up.

Bream are
fair. Crickets, maggots and red worms are best fished 20-25 feet deep.

Crappie are still fair. Try using small spoons, minnows or crappie jigs at depths around 20-30 feet deep near brush.

Catfish are still fair. Try live bait or cut bait in depths of 20-25 feet.
