All accesses are for wheelers and small portable houses only. Very few reports this past week. Panfish should be getting better but no one has been fishing. Game fish season closes 2/26/17. We have new licenses available and they are effective 3/1/17.
Slower than last week. Most of the big houses are off the area lakes. The ice is still good but most of the accesses are in bad shape. Four wheelers and portable houses will be fine but big wheel houses should stay off.
Walleye fishing has slowed and not many fishing reports this past week. Still waiting for panfish to start. It has been a slow week.
Some walleye being caught on Ann lake. A few walleye caught on Waska late at night. Lots of small northerns on Waska using tip-ups and suckers. Sunfish on Villard and Maple lakes. Crappies being caught on Long Lake.
Same old pattern as the last few weeks. Panfish activity should get better in area lakes as we get close to Feb. Northerns continue to be good on most lakes. Walleyes are not very active.
Same as past two weeks. Nothing is jumping out of the hole. Still some walleyes being caught. Have to search to find the sunnies. There hasn't been a hot lake in the area this past week.
The same as last week. The best walleye fishing on Waska has been late at night when it is quite. Not much to report for panfish on area lakes. Spear fishermen say area lakes have cleared up. With warmer weather would be a good time to go fishing!
Ice on all area lakes is now well over 14 inches. Walleyes on Waska are in 20-22 feet of water. Jigs and fatheads are working best. Reno and Emily still good for walleyes but you will have to search for them. Crappies are on Glenwood side of Waska. Maple has sunfish but they are small. Area lakes are clearing up for spearing northerns.
The ice on our area lakes has not gotten any thicker, still 10-12 inches. More fishing activity on all the lakes. No hot lake or fish species to talk about. You will have to search for a hot bite. Good luck and happy new year.
Most area lakes now have 10-12 inches of ice. No vehicle traffic yet as people are being cautious. Wheelers and bigger houses have been getting out. Walleye fishing has been good on the lakes. Most people are using fatheads or shiner minnows. Crappies use minnows and sunfish waxworms or euro-larvae. Weather looks good after this weekend so get out and enjoy. Merry Christmas!
