According to our fishing expert John Muhich at Buck’s Hardware, fishing continues to be good despite the hot weather.

Walleye action still seems to be in the 12 to 18 foot range in the rocks and along weed edges with night crawlers and leeches being the baits of choice.

Some lakes with decent action include: Hungry Jack, Poplar, the Twin Lakes, Two Island, Cascade, and Brule.

On Lake Superior lakers are being found around 200 feet or so with Salmon being fished at 125 feet or less. Action is still pretty good out there.

Rainbows are being had in Trout Lake, Leo, Ram and Mink lakes. Most are using crawlers for live bait. Brookies in the streams of course, but also a few lakes like Shoe, Carrot, Vale, and Gadwell if you’re in for a hike.
