We will be there too, but likely closer to I-Falls... Any reports from that end of the river?

We are also planning a trip to the river starting this Thursday and lasting through Sunday. We make the trip every year and really look forward to October for this particular reason. It seems as each year passes the fishing reports available become less and less. I remember when rishing reports seemed to be updated hourly beginning towards the end of September. I hope the walleyes are not as tight lipped as the reporting lately grin.gif. Good luck to everyone!

I was up there closer to I falls this weekend... Caught a lot of nice eyes between 24 and 271/2.. Brought home our limit. The larger walleyes we caught in 5-7 ft. Most of the keepers we caught in 10-14 feet of water. Shinners and jigs worked the best. Good luck...

Thursday out of Frontier 15, 15, 15 26.5, 15, 15, 17, 17, 16,14 about thirty fish between 3 guys. Another boat in or group at the grass on the way to four mile landed a 30 incher.

Friday at the church, 17, 16, 17, 28.25, 17, 18, 16, plus a few through backs.

Saturday cold and slow till 4:30 caught a few but very tough fishing.

Most caught on Shiners and anchored. Slip drifting worked a little better on Thursday. Jig color didn't seem to matter and the 28.25 was caught on a white featherd jig and a shinner.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
