I am just wondering what lakes around the fargo area, that have ice, have been producing any fish. I go to school at NDSU and want to get out sometime next week? Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks For you time,
Craig

Well head South to Richland or Sargent County if you wish to find some ice on a few lakes.

Grass Lake near Ledgerwood is a option for pike. Buffalo Lake North of Rutland has some ice and you will find pike and perch there.

Lake Teawauken South of Cayuga ND has some ice on the bays and pike & walleye would be the plan, walleye at dusk and after close to rocky points or close to shore.

Trout may be a option at Morton Pond West of Wahpeton just off the interstate near Morton. Bring minnows and fish anywhere from on the bottom to just under the ice for them crazy trout.

Or head North to Devils Lake, the fishing is starting to go there for pike, perch, and walleye on the bays.

~STAY OFF THE RIVERS THEY ARE NOT SAFE!~

The ice anywhere you go is marginal so be VERY CAUTIOUS! Walk only no vehicles at this time should be on the ice.

Good fishing!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.
