According to our fishing expert Jon Muhich of Buck’s Hardware, the fishing is still slow.
A lot of people are settling in for the grouse and deer archery hunts. But there are still some going out looking for some fish dinners.
Walleyes are still a bit slow everywhere -- but in Poplar Lake fish were being caught around 18 to 22 feet with a jig and minnow. Devil Track reports a few being caught in 15 feet or so with jig and minnow or crawler. Some action in Crescent was also found in 20 to 25 feet with a jig and minnow.
One may as well hit the trout lakes before the season ends at the end of the month. Trestle Pine was going fine in 12 to 18 feet of water using a crawler and spoon or jig. Trout Lake was also good at about the same depths. Esther was reporting some rainbow action about 20 to 25 feet deep using crawlers and jigging Swedish Pimples.
