Report: Want to catch walleye? Go to Mouse Creek boat dock on south side. Right of the dock is a cliff point. Throw out west about 15ft. Right now their hitting 12-18 inches off bottom on minnows. You'll throw back 15 before u get the big one. Know the restrictions! Not a good spot for young kids. There is a nice grove of trees and a beach right off the cliff to pitch a tent. Best @ sun-up and dusk. PSSSST! Don't tell anyone, this place is a closely guarded secret.
