3 posts in this topic

I am going to Red Lake this weekend. How Have the fish been biting? Are the walleyes still active? Any suggestings for norherns? Any chance of catching any crappies this time of year?

Thanks

Walleye are still responding to vertical jigging around deeper structure along with larger fish coming off of cranks run slow.

Northerns have been hitting cranks with the speed turned up and crappies have been showing up around rock piles and some of the eastern cribs.

We were camping at the State Park last week. The wind was just too much most of the time we were there, we stayed in the river. Trolled cranks (orange/bronze rapalas) up and down the river. We hit a ton of small walleyes with most in the 19-20 inch range. A bunch of small northerns as well, few big enough to keep.

Fishing did shut off a bit when the temp dropped into the 80s from the 90s last week.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
