Mayfly hatch along the Gunflint?

Recommended Posts

SkunkedAgain

I'm mainly a Vermilion guy, and have heard that the mayflies are starting to hatch there. I'm hitting the BWCA off the Gunflint starting Friday. Does anyone know if the hatch is on yet, or if there are imminent signs?

Not yet but it could start any day.

I was out on Entry point 16 this past week and the mayflies have begun.

So when do the pests affect the bite? Right when they first show up or does it take a few days? I wonder how it affects lakes like Sag as 2 years ago I fished with mayflies visible and we couldn't catch any eaters but got some hawgs on the reefs. Any thoughts?

Im gonna be fishing sag on monday so i hope the mayflies dont affect the bite that much, although im mainly interested in the hawgs anyway. I will post a report on how it is when i get back.

I haven't experienced a hatch on a B-Dub lake but I did fish amongst them last weekend on Cass. The bite was not a problem. I had a great boat captain (Beef on here of Fathead Guide Service) and we caught tons of walleye. You could see the clouds of mayflies down below and there were sometimes walleye nearby which we caught. Othertimes the walleye were cruising around.

Just remember...the best time to go fishing is when you are on the water. How cliche!

Just an update: I went in on the Skipper/Portage access near Poplar Lake this past weekend. On Saturday there were mayflies abound and fish plucking them off of the surface.

Luckily I was hammering the northerns and smallies without a care for walleye.
