Wheatley Fishing Tough For Big Boyz Tournament

Fishing is really tough out of Wheatley. Rainbows are really scarce and the walleyes are not as widespread as you would expect. I have caught walleyes the last 2 mornings but no rainbows. The tournament is on now and fish numbers are not great. A few rainbows are being caught daily but they are really scattered.
The white bass will drive you crazy. It is a challenge to keep them off your hooks.

SS Minnow Fishing Report Wheatley
Well it looks like the rainbows are moving in just in time for the Big Boyz fishing tournament out of Wheatley.
There have been several reports of rainbows taken down by the windmills in the last few days. That is good news. We should have fish for the tournament running July 26 through August 4.
I hope to get out in the next couple of days. I have been experiencing a little respiratory issue and the oppressive heat was not a good mix with that.

SS Minnow Report Wheatley Fishing
The fishing report for Wheatley is not real good right now. I am afraid that it is going to be tough fishing for the annual Big Boyz fishing tournament if water temperatures don’t start climbing soon. WE are at least 10 degrees below temps from a year ago at this time when we were experiencing good fishing. I have only heard of 1 rainbow taken out of Wheatley so far and a few are being taken further east at Erieau.
