Fishing Reports

Fishing with the Guides  by George Langley.   Week of   3/10 to 3/17.

For those of you who don't like to icefish on crowded lakes, you are in luck. Pick any lake in the area and chances are you will not see anyone else out there! The persistent deep snow and slush is keeping most anglers away from fishing the last couple of weeks. If you are headed out on the lakes, snowshoes and waterproof boots are a must. Warmer weather this week will knock down that snowpack and hopefully improve conditions out there.

The few anglers we have heard from are reporting decent action. Crappies are being caught in the deep holes with minnows, spikes, waxies and plastics. Late afternoon seems to be the best time to find active crappies, and tip-downs are the best method at that time of day. A few bluegills are getting caught in shallow weeds with the usual jig and waxworm presentation. Perch can be found in a number of different spots from shallow weeds to deeper mud flats. Minnows have been the key to catching nicer perch.

This is a great time of year to catch some nice panfish. We are ready for better conditions so we can get back out on the ice without working too hard at it.

Good luck and good fishin’!

Most of the trails are in excellent to good condition with a handful that are still being cleaned up after the last snowfall. The groomers have been working hard to get trails in top notch condition. The Lake Forest Trail is not open at this time. The cold evenings and warmer days make getting outside and seeing the beauty of nature very enjoyable!
