Leonard from Robert’s Bait and Tackle says fishing been slow. Holter has had a few reports pulling cowbells catching trout, and walleye fishing has been really slow. Francis if the wind isn’t blowing, folks been catching a few walleyes using jigs, minnows, and crank bait. Tiber has been hit or miss. The Missouri has had reports on walleye.
