My spring guiding out of Chamberlain is coming to an end. With the high winds we had this spring there wasn't to many day's spent on the water but when the weather was good so was the fishing. Numbers are still good but size ran a bit smaller however some nice fish have been caught in the system and the biologist said the big fish numbers are up and total numbers of walleye are down. Either way there are plenty of fish to be caught. Crow Creek still produces fish daily and most likely will until end of May. Trolling cranks baits down river near the white river area is good as well as many of these fish are post spawn and on the move and looking for food. If the wind is blowing and you are stuck to trolling you can't go wrong just dropping in the river channel and going up or down stream with the wind. Pitching jigs in town around the rocks and bridges has been excellent in the afternoon but that bite is tapering off. White is a solid color in the clean water North of Chamberlain and you made want to mix in a bit of color when fishing south depending on clarity. Temps are still below 50 so the great bite hasn't event started yet. Expect the Platte area to be the best fishing through June.
