looking for a fishing report on echo and jenet lakes

3 posts in this topic

I am going on a fishing/hunting trip in the echo and jenet lakes area this coming weekend, and I was wondering if anyone out there could tell me how the fishing has been in that area latley. I have been doing excepionally well up on sand point the past couple of weekends catching alot of fish in the slot size, as well as many fish on the 19-27 inch range, but all the fish have been in 38-45 feet of water. If anyone out there could give me a report it would be very appreciated.

We fished Echo the week of 9-16. We caught some slab crappies in the 12 to 13 in. range. The Grouse hunting was very poor, however they seemed to be in coveys yet. The birds did get were very small. Didnt fish Jeanette this trip. A sleeper lake to try sometime is Picket lake. I hear its very good lake for eyes.

Hey there Dusty,

thanks for the info . Fishing on echo has always peen pertty slow for walleyes, but I will definatley give those crappies a try. Might even give that pickett lake a try, but I just heard from a friend of mine up there that the walleyes have started to turn on on jenet. Also still hoping to get a few birds, if luck prevails. thanx again for the info.

Big J.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect
