Boat fisherman are finding excellent fishing in most parts of the lake for pike, walleyes, and white bass
Finally some nice weather’s warmed up the water temps and fishing along with it. Boat fisherman are finding excellent fishing in most parts of the lake for pike, walleyes, and white bass. In these areas anglers are pitching cranks such as shad raps or countdowns or jigs with plastic into shallow windswept shorelines and along the edges of developing weedbeds. Find warmer water temps and you’ll find fish. Anglers are also reporting some jig fishing in the early morning and evening hours in the moving water bridge areas. With new record high lake levels, anglers are finding a lot of newly flooded areas around the lake and are reporting most of these areas to hold fish. Some of the better areas have been the small bays in Pelican and the Flats, Doc Hagens, New Mill Bay, Knudson’s Bay, Mission Bay, Penny Bay, the storm sewer area, Black Tiger Bay, Browns Bay in East Devils Lake, and most of the bridge or other moving water areas. Shore fisherman are reporting some good fishing at the bridges in the early morning and even hours and along the rip rap roads on the western part of the lake near Minnewaukan. For walleyes try jigs or lindy rigs tipped with leeches or minnows. For pike, spoons, cranks, smelt, or herring. For white bass, white or chartreuse jigs tipped with minnows. Good Luck & Good Fishing!!!
