According to our fishing expert Jon Muhich of Buck’s Hardware, “It’s been slow up here this past week.”
Walleyes have been spotty. Sag and Seagull are doing OK. Jigs and minnows in fifteen to twenty-five feet. Take some night crawlers along too. Some were tracking decent fish on Cascade Lake in 12 to 18 feet with jigs and minnows. Also Homer Lake was giving up a couple of fish in that same range.
The bigger story this week, however, is the start of two seasons coming up this weekend, September 15th. Both the Archery deer hunting and the Grouse hunting seasons open. I’m sure there will be a ton of orange out in the field. Plenty of birds have been spotted out there.
Also a lot of deer movement with some bucks starting to follow does. Let’s hope everyone has a successful hunt.
