Report By : Guest Fishing Rating : 3 Water Temperature : 78
The water temperature is closer to 80 degrees than it is 44 like this site is saying, but the fishing isn't too bad at all. Caught a mess of bluegill a couple of days ago. The catfish are biting on live sunfish, and even caught a 7lb largemouth bass while out bluegilling.

Fish shallow waters with flashy spinners/spoons for guaranteed largemouth success. Reel in slow from about 10 feet..they hit around 4-5 feet from shore. Let them chase...they will hit hard, must be ready to set your hook. I lost a big one this week from lazily attempting to set my hook.

Easy to access shore fishing or fish off the boat docs,their is only one area boats hardly go so wake can be an issue bluegill bite easy and with so many rocks they stay close to shore other species are a little harder to catch bass maybe 1 every 3 days Great place. over fished in summer members only

Best bet are catfish, channel and blue are numerous and hitting well. Flatheads good. Drum are also abundant.

The Brown Trout are still running at Lake O\'Hare! They\'re hitting on spawn sacs or Berkley Bait pellets or I\'ve even had luck with Rooster Tails. -Dirk of the North
