Sam and I fished from the bank at Parker Bend during this morning’s generation just to see if we could pick up a brown or a walleye on Rapalas. No luck this morning. We launched the boat at Houseman Access at 1 PM and proceeded downstream to check out the changes in the river bottom since the high water. From Houseman toward Beaver, the channels seem to be pretty much as they were prior to the high water. There are some new bottom structures, but the closest to the surface that we found along our route was 8 feet. We did mark a great number of fish, even a school that looked like whites. Friday, we plan on checking out the river upstream from Houseman Access at least as far as the old Hwy 62 bridge pilings.There were many boats out trying for walleye, which seem to be staging a month early. Those that we have caught so far this year are males ranging from 16 to 21 inches. Those folks we met today who were jigging for walleye confirmed what we have found. The generation schedule for tomorrow calls for water to move from 7 through 9 AM and from 6 through 9 PM. The day should be sunny with a high of 69º F. with southerly winds of 15 to 20 MPH.
