I heard, and it looked like there was a tourney out there over the weekend.  But wow, was the lake riled up with the winds. I’m glad I wasn’t fishing it.

My son has been there through last week to present,. The wind has been pretty bad the last few days that has minimized his fishing areas. 

on June 9 & 10 him and two others in the boat landed 134 fish, mostly bass but did have several Walleye, Northern and one Musky. All were in 10 feet of water or less and he fished with ned rigs worms, tubes, flukes and spinner baits. Water temperatures ranged from 61 in the AM to 67 late in the day. Conditions were sunny and windy.

I will be headed their tomorrow from Oklahoma and will be fishing June 14, 15 & 16 with my son.

The full moon phase will be June 17 so I hope to have good fishing in the shallows along with Bass a wave of Bass spawning.

We have been flooded out of our lakes and most all ramps and access areas still remain closed due to high water levels.

I will write another fishing report by mid next week once I get back from my fishing trip.

Good luck @Mark Gottula

 

Thanks for the report.  It’s interesting to see as many out of staters coming to our neck of the woods to fish the smallies.  It’s  been so many years that I’ve only talked to locals heading south to try your waters, mostly to chase bass in the winter.

 

Welcome and have a good time.

I have been out there twice since the 1st of June to target smallmouth.  The first trip was good, the second not so much.  They were pre-spawn the first time and more willing to bite.  The second trip they may have already been post spawn or still spawning and they were not as willing.  The second trip was also much windier and boat control was an issue.  My folks have been out on the main lake several times since opener targeting walleyes with live bait and they have done well.  They average 25 fish/day and most of them are in the 22-27 inch range with the biggest being 27.5 inches.  I heard there was a huge bug hatch recently.  When I was last out there a week ago the water temp was 66 degrees.  If the wind is blowing, you'll need a really big boat to get out to the flats and walleye fish because there's 4 foot waves.

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!
