Lake Darling

4 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to Darling on Sat. for a week and I was wondering if anybody had any reports . We usually troll for pike but I'd like to find a spot for eyes or panfish. Also is the water level to low to get back to Lake Alvin?? any help would be great thanks.

The water levels on Darling remain low. I'm not sure on the status of the channel to Alvin, but there's always a sand bar on the Darling side anyways which makes it challenging. Alvin gets pretty weedy and warm by August so you are better off fishing Darling for northerns. The sunfish bite on Darling has been decent lately, and the bass remain active in a little deeper water. Try drifting the flats for sunnies and the occasional bass/northern.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
