Any hot spots there? Got tired of the annual fight with the Mayflys in June so changed our annual camping trip to next week. Last few yrs the flys were so thick and the fishing was very tough..Hoping it improves with the later date. Fishin for Crappie n walleyes, smalles. Stayin at Birch Lake campground. Any tips would be appreciated. Hopin to get the kids on some good crappies

crappies I can't help you with, but the Birch Point area has always been a solid walleye & pike producer for me when I've been on Birch. Last time I was up (2 weeks ago), spinner rigs with 1/2 a crawler were doing the trick. 15-25 ' of water... slow trolling. Jigging works well in that area too, but there was a minor bug hatch going on, so we went with the old match the hatch idea.

Birch has a lot of spots that will produce fish year round. Don't be afraid to explore a little bit, and look for structure that you would think will hold fish.

Check out the BWCAW-Duluth-Ely Forum. There is a pretty sizeable thread on Birch Lake. Tons of info there.
