According to our fishing expert Jon Muhich of Buck’s Hardware, It’s still the big lake where the action is.

On Lake Superior, cohos remain active in less than 100 feet and lake trout are hitting in 100 to 150 feet – spoons are working on both. Lake trout also are hitting spoons and ciscoes over 55 to 80 feet on Lake Saganaga.

There’s some evening walleye action with leeches and crawlers at Seagull in 20 to 25 feet, Homer Lake in 17 to 25 feet, Devil Track in 20 to 22 feet, and at Cascade Lake in 12 to 17 feet.

Nightcrawlers are turning smallmouth bass in six to 12 feet at Poplar Lake, East Twin, and Devil Track. Sucker minnows are triggering northern pike on Northern Lights Lake and Elbow Lake, while crawlers are producing brook trout on Lost Lake in 17 feet and at Carrot Lake in 12 to 17 feet.

Fly fishing during the evening hours at Esther Lake has produced rainbows and splake.
