    Does anyone know the condition of the spillway at Carlyle? I plan on going there Sunday or Monday. Any current fishing reports would be helpful also. Thank you.

    sorry so long to reply back, this stupid computer crashed. All fixed now. I didnt make it over there, I hope to fish tomorrow. My friend and I were planning to fish the Mississippi river or the Kasakaskia tomorrow but hearing that the sauger bite is on at Carlyle, Im gonna see if I can change his mind.

    Anytime Shad Gut. I tried to talk my buddy into driving over there but he had a family function that evening so we banked fish the Mississippi with no luck. Hopefully I can get over there next weekend, maybe it will clear up some by then.

    Rick, any Idea how muddy the lake is after the last rain? I'm guessing it is pretty dirty right now, been couple weeks since last trip (10-12 days) the eyes were hitting fairly well but I am sure the High water has dirtied the lake pretty well and shut them down?
