Riley Lake in EP

7 posts in this topic

Has anybody been to Riley lately?

I have been there a few times this year and have had little success. I have caught some nice fish but it really seems to be hit or miss. I usually target walleyes, but I enjoy catching anything that bites.

Both actually, its just kinda hard ot find them sometimes. The DNR says the lake has great pike size and numbers and I've caught crops out there before too.

I think I am going to try riley tomorrow with the kids. I hope I can find a few panfish maybe a northern. This time of year should I try where I found them in summer (at weed edges 10 fow) or out in the deeper water?

      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.
