Any new walleye reports Chisago area ?

8 posts in this topic

Looking to see how the bite is doing on Chisago chain. I don't need specific spots just a little help with witch lake. I have to get my son out this weekend he's like a caged dog.

If you want to just catch. I have been doing quite well on Green. However with the over 17" slot I have yet to catch anything I can keep. But have been getting 20-30 walleyes each time out. I am going to start working North Center next so maybe I can get something for the table.

Are those 20-30 walleyes all of the 8-inch variety? Or are there some better ones?

I've caught some decent ones on Green in years past - but have heard of a lot of the little walleye cigars lately.

I caught 5 on Clear Lake on Saturday morning. Weather was cloudy and windy. One was 20", 4 were around 11-12". They only bit for about 45 minutes. Saw a couple other good fish boated by others during the same time period, but not much outside that. Went back on Sunday evening. The weather was sunnier and calmer and there was a lot of traffic on the lake when I got there. Stayed until 11 and didn't get any walleye.

have seen a lot of traffic on Clear. I have stayed away because of it. You can go to Forest, Green, North Center, and chisago and not have to fight with as many boats. What time were you fishing? In the morning?? Where were you fishing along the Freeway shore or accross on the point. I have done real good on clear in past.

There seems to always be a ton of traffic on Clear. If its not fisherman, its pleasure boaters. I never understood all of the pleasure boating - the launch is so shallow and washed out, its a real pain.

I've seen fishing hit or miss on Clear as well, when its hot, its hot, and when its not - well, I guess it is like a lot of metro lakes.

When I caught fish it was in the morning on Saturday, I think about 7-8 o'clock was about the best times. The fish were on top the long bar that goes out in 5-6 ft. Boat traffic was low because it was cloudy and windy and early. When I went back on Sunday evening there were tons of boats and I think it really churned up the water. The wind was pretty calm and the lake was almost like glass after the sun went down and the pleasure boaters left. Plus I think there was a bug hatch of some kind. There were fish eating bugs off the water right up until I left at 11pm.

The crappies seemed to be biting pretty well, but I didn't focus on them much.
