Heading in the BWCA on Monday and was wondering how the fish have been biting up there. I am mainly looking for Northens and smallies but my brother wants to catch his first Lake Trout. If anyone knows any water temps that would also be helpful

Thanks for any help.

We are going in on Little John then going to John, East Pike, and West pike. We will be going the same way out. From what I've seen east pike is going to be the good northern and bass lake and West Pike will be our best chance at Lake trout.

Thanks for the help.

Got back today from my trip and had a pretty good time. The fishing started out good with the northerns biting on spoons on John Lake. I got a 32 inch northern wich is my personal best and my cousin got a 40 inch northern the first day in. The bass were biting good on east and west pike on topwater but the size were kind of small. Then on West Pike we managed 5 lake trout from our group of four.

Had a nice trip thanks to all of you that have been answering my questions. Thanks for the tips.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
