    How's the spillway at Carlyle doing? Are the walleye/sauger biting yet?

    I generally don't fish there until the middle of february that seems to be the best time. I would also like to know if they are biting now. Heres the number to Mama Lavish's bait shop (618)594-4413 If she's open she can help.

    Thanks for the number. I usually start fishing about that time also but I have had good luck in December.

    As far as I know, Mamas closed thr first part of November. There is another baitshop called Henkels archery and tackle. You can find their webpages by searching Carlyle Lake fishing report. So far, Im the only idiot Ive seen down there.Maybe a little rain will liven things up

    Well we got the rain, I'd say anytime you can brave the weather. The fish should have moved up. Good luck!
