Weeds are going down and fish are scattering

By Bill Bartusek

It seems the Fourth of July really sneaks up fast every year. It did for me, and now it's over. The weather was great, unless you don't like warm weather.

The season for our lakes is also changing quickly. Anglers found weeds in the area lakes maturing and going away. Cedar Lake near New Prague and other area lakes are now relatively void of weeds. When this happens, fish tend to scatter. The old weeds are dying and using up valuable oxygen, so the fish move on. They cruise the lake and look for new lush green weeds.
