Shore fishing in Ely area?

Recommended Posts

ITSATHRILL

We will be headed up to Ely next week staying on Shagawa, we would like to venture out but the group I am going with has little no experience canoeing. Can anybody give me some ideas were we could pack a lunch and shore fish in that area? not afraid of a little hike but the ideas of them fishing from a canoe is not a good one.

Consider a guide in a larger boat.

Fact is, this is just a bad time of year for shore fishing around Ely. Miners Lake right in town, with the aforementioned fishing pier, is primarily a trout lake, though it has bass and pannies, too. Summer fishing for trout there is basically a slip-bobber deal and you'll be fishing with your bait 20 feet down to get it to colder water and casting out as far as you can. A nightcrawler or part of one is the best all-around bait, although a small jig with part of a crawler or some waxworms is good, too. You'll need a trout stamp.

Try the Bass Lake Hiking Trail and then head up to either High or Dry Lake. Dry has brown trout so even with warm weahter they might be fishable from shore.

If you head east out of town on the Fernberg Road you could fish Glacier Pond 1 or 2. Rainbows and Brookies

You could head up the Echo Trail and try Hanson Lake. Splake and Brookies.

Good luck fishing.

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams.

      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
