     Had the big CAST fishing event yesterday. A huge thank you to all the boat captains that volunteered their time and boat to take some special needs people fishing. Another big thank you to the Buckstop in Belle Fourche for donating bait and drinks.
    Most fish were caught dragging crawlers with bottom bouncers on the north end.

     Planning on bringing boat out Thursday-Sunday. Any recommendations on depth, location, and style of fishing (plugs, bouncers, jigs). Not asking for hot spots, just looking for any advice people are willing to share to hopefully catch a few and have a fish fry. Also, anybody else going to be out fishing? Thanks again for the info.

     Bringing the boat up for the 4th of July weekend. I have only had a boat on Orman once and didn't do very well. Anybody have any advice on finding the walleyes that they would be willing to share? I know it is weeks away so things can change, but just looking for what other people are usually using around that weekend. I do have a bunch of plugs and trolling gear, but always prefer pulling bouncers or jigging if the fish are willing to cooperate. Thanks for the help!! Anybody else going to be out that weekend?

     Lake and inlet are ice free.  Have been scouting out the inlet for the last few weeks looking for walleyes. White bass have been busting the surface in the inlet and Friday caught 5 in a row all around 13-15" on a fly rod and a slow retrieve. No water being released from the river.  Doesn't seem to be much walleye activity in the inlet yet but the water is warming. Would bet they'll start moving in by the end of next week.
