The inland fishing season begins Saturday May 2. Walleye anglers should see good catches especially the active males. Water temps are in the low 40's and walleyes continue to spawn on area lakes. Northern pike have just about finished spawning and should be active in shallow bays. The catch and release bass season will also be in effect. Barbless hooks and artificial baits are required. I will monitor water temps this week and will report Friday. Good luck to all anglers.
