Fishing Report – March 26


Snow to Start off Spring

Mother Nature has not been cooperating for the start of spring fishing. It’s hard to believe that this time last year, it was about 80 degrees and sunny. This year the snow is still falling and the water temperature is still around 40 degrees. Due to the weather, we aren’t seeing as many fishermen out on the lake but, that does not mean the fish aren’t biting. Just ask Larry Cherveny from Harrison. He caught a 32-pound blue catfish on March 23 at Miami Whitewater Forest Lake. Larry’s bait of choice was a bluegill to bring in the catfish.

The second tournament of the Panfish Cup series will be held at Miami Whitewater Forest Lake on March 30.

The team that weighs-in the most fish through all eight events will win the cherished “Panfish Cup.” Entry fees are $40.00 per team, per tournament, which includes the boat rental.
