According to our fishing expert John Muhich at Buck’s Hardware, this week has seen a return to some walleye action.
Homer Lake was doing OK in 15 to 23 feet jigging with Rapalas or Swedish Pimples tipped with a minnow head. Binigami Lake was giving up fish in 12 to 16 feet with a jig and minnow. Cascade was also doing pretty well in 15 feet with a jig or Pimple and minnows. Crocodile Lake had walleye action in 12 to 16 feet with jigs and minnows.
Lake trout were hitting in Greenwood at various depths. One group was fishing in about 35 or 40 feet with silver spoons and minnows or ciscoes. Others were much deeper, they were in 60 feet or so but the fish were suspended at about 35 feet.
Duncan Lake was reporting fish in 25 to 38 feet using spoons mostly. Moss Lake is doing well. Fish in the 22 to 35 foot range out a bit deeper. Jigs and minnows or spoons with minnows or ciscoes seemed to be the ticket.
Splake are still going strong in Musquash Lake. Waxies and minnow heads on ice flies and small spoons in 6 to 16 feet. Bogus Lake reported a little action on the splake as well. Waxies with ice flies were the bait chosen most frequently. Esther Lake’s action was fairly shallow, 6 to ten feet with Pimples and minnow heads or waxies.
Rainbow action in Muckwa Lake was decent too. In 12 to 18 feet they were using jigs and spoons with minnows. Trout Lake and Kimball were doing well in 8 to 18 feet. Waxies on a jig or small spoon was recommended.
