Weekly Fishing Report Wednesday, May 27, 2020
Lewis and Clark Lake:
Still continues to provide a lot of action for novice to advanced fisherman from shore and by boat on all species. Bass are starting to hit top water baits and can be a lot of fun in the mornings and evenings. A few walleyes are still biting as well. If you bottom fish with crawler or minnow there are also some nice catfish. The weeds can be frustrating but look for techniques that prevent you from snagging them like top water baits and slip bobbers.
You can’t go wrong with minnows or crawlers on the bottom if you want action on drum, catfish, carp, and even a few sauger/walleye. Seems like the walleye/sauger bite has slowed down but there could be a few later in the evening or at night still. Warmer temps will also bring bow fishing action.
Recent rain has the lake a bit stained but some walleyes are starting to show up in the west end of the lake with some northern pike mixed in while live baiting or trolling the flats. The east end of the lake is providing a few walleye and the smallmouth bass should still be biting along the rocks and around the marina. The lake also has a good population of catfish for bank anglers, and they are active and biting. Lewis and Clark Lake can be tough but the water temps are looking good for the walleye bite to heat up.
