Yeah, people keep telling me that. I know the shore/bait fisherman are not doing as well right now as they were earlier in the season. Overall action has slowed down a bit but I continue to catch fish from my boat using flies. I think the real threat to those fish is going to be nature, once again. It's a shallow lake and if it gets real hot the fish will suffer. I do think the idea someone posted here of closing the lake to fishing in July and August has some merit, as does putting in aerators in the winter, but I don't think either is likely to happen in the short term. With increased pressure the fish that remain will get line shy and I hope enough will survive (along with restocking) to make ice fishing excellent, if the winter is mild. . .
