Spring Fishing is Underway!

Spring is here and our docks are in! Our fish cleaning stations at the boat ramps are not up and running for the season yet but our year-round fish cleaning station located next to Ed’s Bait Shop is running for your convenience.

Shore fishing has been picking up, and there have been reports of some good fish being caught! Try your luck near the bridges, coulees in the upper basin, or the shallow bay areas. Jigs and plastics (like a white Mister Twister) or paddle tail plastic have been working well.  Shallow water crank baits have also been working. It looks like this weekend is going to be a nice one, look for walleyes in the shallow bays during the afternoon once the sun has had a chance to heat the water up.

Congratulations to Nathan LaFleur on the catch and release of this beautiful 51.5” northern pike he caught last week from shore. This is one giant fish and just goes to show how great of opportunities Devils Lake has fishing from shore.
