Gabe Fassler, 8, with his catch.
As we all know, weather plays a big role in fishing. This summer has been up and down in the temperature division, and we’ve had more rain this season than we have the past couple of seasons. While it might not be desirable for those that like to sit by the pool and tan in their bikinis, the good news is it’s been a blessing for the walleye angler. After all this rain, the cooler than normal temperatures have kept the algae bloom down, and the fishing is still productive for walleye and perch.
