Not a ton has changed since the last report. Still in the heat of summer with water temps anywhere from 74-78 in the area depending on the lake. Water levels are down significantly on most lakes so that is something to be aware of when launching. The next week still has most days in the 80s so there shouldn't be much change in water temp or patterns.
Walleye fishing remains decent, look for it to improve in the coming weeks as the water temps drop. Spinners with worms and crankbaits on leadcore are still the two most popular tactics right now. There are still fish spread out in the basins chasing bait and those are two good methods to target them. More walleyes seem to be moving into the weeds so don't be afraid to try pulling spinners through the weeds or a jig/plastic combo as well. Best bets for walleye are still Reno, Waska, and Mary.
Bass fishing has been on fire, especcially on Minnewaska. Most largemouth are schooled up on the deeper weedlines. Locating coontail and sunfish together is key to finding the bass. 16-18ft with a jig worm, drop shot, or finesse jig has been best. Smallmouth are still biting as well and most fish are on shallow sand in 4-8ft. Other good options for largemouth are Reno, Pelican, Scandi, and Le Homme Dieu chain.
Panfish are also holding in the weeds and on the edges of the weeds, mostly in 12-17ft. Sunfish can be found schooled up and easy to catch once located. Crappies are a little more spread out, slowly trolling a small plastic or a small crankbait is a good option for the crappies. Fishing in the evening has been key for a good crappie bite. Most lakes in the area are producing a good panfish bite, just have to find them and they will bite.
