Default Incredible Algae at Calling Lake!!

Was out at the cabin for the long weekend. Saturday was too rough but we tried to fish anyway! We gave up and headed in.

Sunday after the pancake breakfast at the Community Center we finally set out. The algae was so thick on the east side that the tackle and the line and the rods were quickly "gooped"

Water level is incredibly high but we have had a very hot summer. Wind has been steady Northwest to Southeast, so it is pushing all the algae to the east side. Normally the Calling river flushes out the algae from the lake, but that has not happened or has not happened enough.

A Friend did report success with bottom bouncers and dew worms trolled in the deep off of VW point, but it has been a pretty tough weekend for fishing.
