Rising waters lead to new fishing spots

Rising lake levels are allowing anglers to go to places they have not been able to fish for a long time. Lake Michigan levels are well above average after reaching record lows in 2013 according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This is forcing some fish species like smallmouth bass to travel farther to find shallower waters. Fishing guide and Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament organizer JJ Malvitz says anglers are taking note of how the higher lake levels are changing their strategy.

Water levels are rising on the bay side as well, which will host the Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament this weekend beginning on Friday.
