As heat returns to the reservoir our bass, crappie and bluegill bite improves. Walleye fishing is really on right now. Trollers are using spinners and night crawlers and continue to catch a mixed bag of walleye, trout, bass, crappie, perch, bluegill, yellow bullheads and channel catfish. Bass action continues to be good and will only improve with 85-degree temperatures.
Royal Hunt Club is a great do it yourself hunting option in our area. You may purchase a pass for dove hunting for $100 or purchase the regular pheasant, duck and goose season pass for $300. Our Royal Hunt Club President Sam Worsham has spearheaded a pheasant release program for the Hunt Club this year. 2,000 pheasants are being raised in the Royal 4H Center to be released on the Royal Hunt Club land during pheasant season. There is no extra charge for the released pheasants and the release sites are marked on the map. No guides are allowed to participate in the Royal Hunt Club; this is open to the public other than that. For more information please call (509) 346-2651.
