Default Glendo Tree Fishing Questions

Last year I had the pleasure of being introduced to Glendo tree fishing by Bernie...it was like swamp people bass fishing/alligator hunting but only for walleyes...the day we were on the lake there was a big tourney and you would of never known it...the solitude and lack of wind was incredible...I will either bribe someone I know with a big boat to go...or take my pee wee boat and hope for calm seas to and from the tree zone...and I am serious about this I may even take some week days off...last year it was a last minute invite by Bernie...a crazy trip Friday and Saturday I fished Cedar Bluff with Kevin and Jeff and packed up around 5 pm on that Saturday (I wasnt planning on fishing Cedar Bluff on Sunday) drove home to Denver a 3 hour nap...up at 2 am packed a few things and drove to Bennett Hill to meet Bernie at 6am...fished until about 5:30 pm...3 days...2 lakes...3 states...525 miles from Cedar Bluff to Glendo...my son's old basketball practice shirt playing in my head...you miss a 100% of the shots you don't take!...both fishing trips were a hoot...but that tree fishing was really crazy and unique...I did do a search on here to gather whatever information I could glean...but have some questions...and if u dont feel like posting an answer send me a PM please...and if you are figure it out yourself thats kewl too...

Is that first week in June a pretty good traditional time frame for tree fishing?

Are all their campsites in the park on reservation system? Or some first come first serve? And yes I know they dont like greenies...I am good with that...

Are Indian Point or Elk Horn more conducive to tree fishing locations...

Small jigs seemed to work better last year...have any recommendatoins?...have you tried small cranks or slip bobbers although I prefer jigs or lures...

Have you heard tourney dates for June up there yet?

I think the reservoir was higher than normal last year at the time...have you heard predictions for this year?

And anything you care to add that might be helpful...

Thanks!

Muddy bay is always good if the water is up in the wood.

I scratched my boat at Big Mac last spring in the wood, but that is where the eye's were

One rule i've always gone by.......if you gotta worry about scratching your boat or driving on dirt roads......don't buy that boat
