According to our fishing expert, Jon Muich of Buck’s Hardware…Fishing’s slowed a little bit this week as people were getting ready for the bird hunting season.
Over in Homer Lake the walleyes are in the fifteen to 22 foot range jigging with a minnow. Some are having success with crawler harnesses.
In Devilfish the bite is a little in the evening off the islands in 18 to 25 feet or so. Jig and crawler is working here. Up at McFarland Lake try a jig and crawler in 12 to 18 feet. Northerns are giving good action as well. Check out the perch as some have picked up a few nice ones recently. Jig and crawler or jig and minnow.
Trout fishing slowed a little but the lakers in Sag are hitting in about 65feet of water, fish are suspended at 35 or so. Spoons trolled slow might get you some action.
Trout Lake’s rainbows are hitting in 25 feet or so with a crawler. Lakers were down deeper but catchable jigging with spoons.
