Riley or Bavaria

11 posts in this topic

Just wondering if there is anyone out fishing on these lakes. Trying to figure out where i am going to go on sunday, so any help would be awesome. Also, water clarity would be nice as well.

Thanks so much

Are they fishing all parts of Riley or is it just the shoreline by the public access? I want to get out to the hump on the far side but dont want to walk straight across the middle if its not safe and dont want to spend all morning checking to get across.

Thank you and be safe.

Fished Riley today with no luck out in front of the houses I saw portables on the back right side if your looking out from the access. Found there was about 8-9 inches or Ice. Sorry BnS didn't really check the clarity.

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
