Bluegrass Island- -open to cross
Pictured above is our Big Jack Winner from last week!
We saw a few limits yesterday we had some anglers head out late and get walleye just before last cast. By the way sunrise to sunset fishing only is still in effect until May 1st. With the lower water walleye were mainly taken from Bluegrass island , Buttonwood park, and Jerome Rd rapids areas. We did hear of a few taken at Orleans park but you have to wade waaaaay out there to get to that deeper moving water. With today’s nearly identical conditions those same areas would be the best to try. Most anglers yesterday also reported multilpe species being caught , catfish, white bass, smallmouth bass, walleye and the ever present sucker ..sucka.
So the weather agitators initially said 80s this coming weekend, I don’t know about all that but it will be warmer than it has been in a long time. If you are planning on getting in on the walleye, this weekend is going to be the time to do it. It has been a cold spring with no significant rain so it has kept the river cool and the walleye in and spawning. Plan the trip and give it a shot.
