Fishing Report for Mattoon, Lake

FISHING REPORT PROVIDED BY:  Reported by Lake Mattoon. About 200 Pelicans are staying on the lake -- and are the main successful fishermen!

WATER CONDITIONS:  Lake levels are up and stained with water temperatures near 60 degrees. Good for fishing. Only three boats in the recent Bass Tournament. The winning stringer weighed in at 14 pounds.






FAIR: Not superb due to the muddy water, but anglers are catching a few fish with minnows and jigs near the docks and off the causeway in 6 to 8 feet of water. Fish average is 9 to 12 inches. Weather conditions affect success.
