Reminds me that at the end of the last big drought, it 2004, guys were catching crappie under the dock at Lindon in less than 1 foot of water.
Hey, the fish gotta try to survive somehow. If the water is not high enough for their liking they will just have to make do somehow.
Glad you were able to get out and that you got some decent sized fish...for white bass that is.
In other words, conditions now are about what they were at the end of the last big drought that ended in the winter of 2004-2005. Few white bass and the walleyes getting skinny. However, the walleyes in UL are still healthy enough this year to make it through the winter okay. That was not the case in 2004, with lots of winter kill amongst the walleyes.
The good news is that no matter how bad it gets for anglers, it only takes one year of good water and a few white bass left to spawn...and the lake will be full of them again within a couple of years. As that famous line from "Jurassic Park" goes: "Nature will find a way."
