CIRCLE LAKE

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where the walleys went? Last year we caught several fish throughout the summer, now nothing.

This is a great little lake that the DNR stocks regularly and it seems as if the fish have all vanished! confused.gif

The low water levels are making it very hard. I recommend you target late hours into night for better success. I have not been able to catch an eye during daylight hours this year on circle. In fact the few times I visited it this year I have only caught 3 eyes total and all were caught late in the day. Fish was caught on husky jerk and slib bobbing with leech.

Thanks for the response, I thought I was loosing the touch. Hopefully the DNR can regulate the water level via the dam on the SE side.

how are the water levels on circle? I haven't been out on the lake in years. Used to catch a lot of panfish and eyes. Then the lake froze out and i havn't been there since. Is the recovery stage going pretty good?

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
