I used to fish Page when I lived down that way. Caught an 11 lb 7 0z Walleye in 1992. I look at it everyday. I think it still produces at times. My fish was caught late October, so it would not hurt to give it a try fall fishing. It usually gets very green in the summer. Thanks for bringing it up I just might get down there when this rain and wind stops. Good luck.

      Just doesn't seem like walleye territory to me. Spring crappies and great bass fishing on that arm.

      Thank you for the response!  Too mucky over there for the walleyes you think?

      Cliff's point about the spawn are true, more Walleyes spawn out in the basin and in other locations on the lake than in Pike bay which represents about 5% of the total eastern basin spawn. That means that all of the spawning Walleyes on the west end are unaffected by the hatchery on Pike bay.  Years of over fishing and stocking freezers has had more effect on Walleyes on the west end than the Pike river hatchery has. The DNR test nets in the fall showed Walleye on Lake Vermilion are well over the state average on both ends of the lake and the numbers have improved on the west end over the last few years. So don't blame the DNR if you are struggling to catch Walleyes. Stop fishing your memories and try something new, either location or presentation, because the fish are there.  I have been fishing Vermilion for almost 50 years now and in my humble opinion the Walleye fishing has never been better than it is right now. Ad to that a world class Muskie fishery, giant Pike, excellent Bass fishing (Both species) jumbo Perch, panfish and the shear Beauty of Lake Vermilion. What is there to complain about?  Count your blessing Vermilion anglers because it doesn't get any better than this. JMHO.
