Recommended Posts

SquirrelBait

Ive been on the Ash River for 2 days and we arent catching any fish. I hear the crawlers are getting hit but not my crawlers. Where is a good spot on nam. Also my daughter got bit by a nat on her eye and it is now swollen shut! What kind of nat can do that?? The nats at home only fly around dog peters!! Whats wrong with this place?

thats why they call it fishin and not catchin. Chances are the wallys are quite deep with the high water temps.. Find a 30-40 drop off and vertical jig with a jig and a leech. Think outside the box and try something different. Yes there are nasty insects this time of year, it a fact of life if your camping. Good luck

I heard that a guide took out a boatload of people and knocked em dead on friday on kab. everybody got their limit including the guide! As for the bug bite try some benedryl. I personally caught 12 fish on saturday. 4 of which were keepers. The rest were too big or too small (under 13). I was lindy rigging with a leech and a spinner. good luck and enjoy the lake.

My brother was up at his cabin this weekend on Crane and he called me yesterday to give a report. They fished the Canadian side of Pattsmith and caught a bunch of walleye. Although they didn't keep any because they were all in the 20-21" range, which is legal in Canada to keep one but chose not to. They went to a different spot and did really well with smaller size eye's, with another couple bigs ones (25") that they released. They are there, you just need to find the active fish. Good luck! Oh yeah, the gnats are bad this year. Girl at work here got bit last week and her eye was swollen bad. Looked like she got in a fight. It went down within 2 days though.

OK, I found some eyes. No bugs but it sure was cold!! I have been able to catch the fish in 6 - 8 foot of water in wind swept bays just outside weedbeds. I wish I would have brought more than short sleeve shirts and one pair of jeans! What the heck was I thinkin! My legs look like someone took a cheese grater to em!

I bought my insulated Carrharts on a trip up in June. And then I was the only one to go out fishing. Had to have the store go to the basement where their winter stuff was to dig them out.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      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!
