The Bite Was On early yesterday , We had multiple reports of anglers hooking on to a walleye first cast at first light- a very exciting way to start the day! Many anglers were in and limited out before noon.And when the sun peeked out for a bit it turned them on even better. As the day progressed and it got overcast, the wind blowing up river turned the Maumee into a wind tunnel, things got a bit tougher as the temperature dropped but we still saw many singles and doubles brought in late.
Today the river temp is pretty stable and we may get that much needed rain that has been avoiding us all month. so we are looking to see another productive day on the river.
Hotspots: Bluegrass Island , Buttonwood Park and Schroders areas were the most productive yesterday . Fish were caught also along the towpath, Jerome rd rapids and ford st access.
All fishing areas are accessible today .
Weight:5/8- 3/4 oz- water still 1.5 feet below normal levels
