Fall Is Right Around The Corner

The fishing on Devils Lake the past few weeks has been good. A lot of people have been having success catching a good number of Walleyes. This time of the year you will find a lot of smaller Walleyes that you will have to sort through to find your keepers.  Bottom bouncers are still the preferred method to catching these eater size walleyes! Ounce and a half bottom bouncers in 20-25 feet of water still seems to be working well. Crawlers and Gulp! are still working great, slow-death presentations are also producing walleyes now. Focus on main lake structure again and also rip-rap areas along the miles of road that surround the lake.

The jigging bite is starting to pick up as we transition into fall fishing. Some of the best fishing on Devils Lake is just right around the corner. As the water starts to cool down and fall air temps show up, the walleyes go on a feeding craze and put a feed bag on. Some of the most ideal times to catch a big healthy walleye on Devils Lake is September-October so it’s not too late to make a trip up here yet for the season. Also duck season opens up the end of September and Devils Lake provides a unique opportunity for a Blast & Cast (duck hunting in the morning & walleye fishing in the afternoon). To us that is a true slice of paradise being able to do both a duck hunt and walleye outing in the same day.

Good luck to everyone that will be out fishing over this long weekend, hope everyone enjoys their Labor Day! Make sure to share pictures of your Devils Lake adventures on our Visit Devils Lake, North Dakota Facebook page!
