Water levels are on there way to very bad again. Temp today was in the high 60's to low 70's on the main lake.

Walleye fishing has been ok. It is slowing down in my opinion due to all the PWT pressure. These guys catch a lot of fish everyday which I think effects the mood of the schools of fish. Seems logical...at anyrate we have been getting them in 17-30 feet of water on crawlers. PWT guys are catching some on redtails.

Musky action has been great. All the different structures are holding fish and throwing something different is a good idea.

I'm guessing the gtes are wide open again. I sure hope Cass gets some rain before our trip over MEA. Last fall getting out of the harbor at Cass Lake Lodge each day was an adventure and that was after they got some significant rain.

If it's even an inch lower than then we'll have to trailer each time we want to got fishing.

Come on rain!!!

Is there much of a fall turnover on Cass to be concerned at all about? We have a trip lined up for towards the end of Sept. - will water temps be low enough to get the fall walleye bite going? Assume we'll be targeting main lake breaks (8'-12' ?) on the north end...

Thanks!

Just curious, whats the deepest you ever catch these Cass eyes? Ive only fished it 3 times, but I do know it has fishable deep water.

Chad,

I have heard many people talk about 35-40 feet and this year Brian and I watched a guy pull in a pig that he said was in 58 feet. At least that is what we thought we heard him say, he was a bit away from our boat but we could see the size of the fish and he was pretty excited and loud when talking about the depth. Myself, the deepest we usually fish is the 25 foot range but we are looking for eaters and not wall hangers. 14-20 inch does me just fine as we are only up there for 2 weeks a year and like to fill the freezer with some of Cass Lakes finest fillets.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
