Fishing Birch Lake?

5 posts in this topic

I'm heading to Birch lake for the first time next week. Can anyone give me any info on some current lake conditions? And can anyone share what your first presentation and depths would be for some panfish and for the walleyes on this lake? Thanks for any info you can give. It is much appreciated.

I live on Birch Lake, and I'm sad to say that I haven't been out for a few weeks. There was a lot of activity and some fish caught all over after the big rains. There were some fish being caught by the Birch Lake campground in deeper water (20+ feet, won't be able to find much deeper) a couple of weeks ago. If nothing there, I'd check in the current below Roaring Stony.

Sorry, meant to say that I was talking about walleyes. I'll not be much help on crappies I'm afraid!

Thanks guys. I would love to get into the gills. I caught one 10" bull gill this weekend in the Mississippi backwaters. I thought I had a big bass on. Thanks again for the insight.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
