Lake Emily

5 posts in this topic

Has anybody been out on Emily lately or over the summer months. I was thinking about trying it this weekend for the first time in a couple years but heard that a combination of low water clarity and a partial winter kill has pretty much stopped all fishing activity on the lake. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

if by partial winter kill you mean all the pigs hauling walleyes off the lake day after day ice fishing last winter; then yeah i guess it was a winter kill; we had a good bite going in may for walleyes; the key to that lake is find the gravel line. find where the gravel turns to mud and thats where you'll find active walleyes. if you go this fall watch out for duck decoys; theres fair amount of hunting on the lake later in the season.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
