The fishing on the Ottertail River system has been very good! Small Mouth Bass and walleye seem to be eager to please from the Orwell Dam to the Red.

Remember there are special conservation regulations in effect on the Ottertail so bone up on the laws in the MN rules and regs so not to get in a situation were you may get ticketed. Page 41 of the regs I believe deals with the special conservation rules on the Ottertail River.

Them SB Bass are a hoot to catch as are the cats and walleye anglers are finding eager to feed.

Good fish'n & have a Happy Holiday!

Orwell Dam is just SE of Fergus Falls MN and a map of the area is avalable on the DNR web site in the Lake finder section.

The area just below the dam is a very rocky section of river fit more for a canoe then any motorized boat. Shore fishing is the ticket or by canoe on this stretch.

The Orwell Lake has a launch and is a interesting impoundment but I have fished the main lake very little, I like the river myself.

Jigs and leaches are doing well as are minnows and crawlers. Floating jigs tipped with a leach were hot this week for walleye and bass.

A very nice area with plenty to offer!

Good luck, hope you do well, let us know how you do.

      Launching a new line of utility ropes (paracord, diamond braid and MFD) and looking to get feedback on them. You get the the product for free in exchange for a review. It's simple; private message me what item you would like to try and where you would like it shipped to. Once you get it please assess the product and leave a review of that specific part number on Amazon or Wal-mart. I am looking for 20  people to test them out. A few samples below. I look forward to hearing from you.

      I know most of the bays have a couple inches of ice and guys are ice fishing. I would doubt the main lake is locked up but there could be some ice to deal with. Better off packing the boat away instead no huge warm up in site.
