Rufus Fish-in - March 28
Bill Egan reported "We had 14 club members show up, and 5 boats. It was either cold and windy or cold and rainy from about 7 when we started until 1:30 when I pulled out.  There were 8 boats fishing walleye and 6 fishing sturgeon near the dam.  Water temp 43 degrees, and the dam was not dumping water.. I saw a guide boat Ed Iman get 2 fish, about 20", one of our boats got a 21" fish and My boat caught 2 males.  Mine was 191/4" and the other 181/2" both on worms.  2 of our boats were still fishing when I left so we may have caught more.  They looked like males moving up to spawn, all were caught in 20-22 foot of water.  They will probably spawn on the next full moon.  Worst day weather wise I've had up there this time of the year."
