Norway/Games Lake

6 posts in this topic

Hey Everybody,

I'm a Metro Angler and I will be getting a chance to fish Norway Lake this weekend at my Brother-in-law's cabin. I've never been on that lake before, any recent reports? No need to divulge secrets, just wondering what the key species are in Norway and Games and how the action's been this year. Thanks!

We were out about 4 weeks ago on Games and caught into some Pike trolling around the southern end. Nothing to brag about, good eaters.

We've had good luck this time of year speed trolling 6" bagleys as fast as 6mph(4mph usually) for pike.

passage from Little Norway is almost dry to Games.

Games is holding pretty good water height but the lakes Northern fisherman D.welch stated that last 3 times out trolling he simply couldnt get a fish.He and his wife are Grandparent campers at Park 7.

Noticed lots of fish shallow,from shore to 5 feet.on south side,weedlines are really developing.

Maybe bobber fish suckers along weedlines?

I would try trolling 4" cranks along the weed edges. I have used is In-line planer boards, on Norway and Games with real good results.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
