We will be on Deer Lake for a week starting July 3rd. We are wondering what the mayfly status is and what the water level is. We we there the same time last year and really enjoyed it. Is everything running a little behind normal as far as the seasonal conditions?
Any other info will be appreciated.

Thanks & keep the bobber bobbing!

Deer lake by Deer River? I'm not sure on the mayfly situation, but the largemouth have been on a terror lately! See my other posts! I haven't heard a walleye report yet, but that doesn't mean they're not catching them. I've had good luck in July and August trolling crankbaits after dark for walleyes. Any other method has been hampered by the rock bass. I know there was a large hatch of mayflies on Moose and Winnie is starting to see a few mayflies too.

Thanks for the reply Brian. Yes, Deer NE of Deer River.
Let me know if you hear anymore about the Mayfly situation. I thought as long as they hit Moose last week that they would have been on Deer.
Do you have any idea where the old boat ramp is on the east side. I have heard that that area is good for crappie.
Thanks.

No clue on the old east end boat ramp, I'll have to do some asking about that one. I've heard of people catching crappies in Deer during late ice. I'm planning on trying next year at late ice. Post a report on how you do.

I got this response on a post I have running on the Grand Rapids page. "Old access is on east side of lake. If you know where Bear island is, go to south of that into Wilcox bay. Old access is north of the bay past sand beach near white boathouse. Water shallow so be careful."
Hope you are right about the Crappies. I will let you know how it all turns out.

Thanks for your response.

      Any fishing reports?   With this warmer weather, has anyone been out?   What are the ice conditions in the Bemidji area?
    • BrianF
      Made the trip up from the cities to retrieve my boat in storage here at the cabin. Got out on the lake tonight for a bit on the snowmobile.  What a mess.  Slush and ponded water everywhere.  Ice depth was 26” on the staked trail and the ice came out in chunks not shavings when using the auger.  It’s definitely getting softer.  We had probably a foot more ice last year at this same time. Gonna be iced out early if this keeps up.  This trip is likely my last time on Lake V for the ice season, unless conditions become drastically colder for a prolonged period.

      None for me yet but I’ve pretty much just been going back and forth from work or been on 371.  Been looking anyway though.

      I know it's super early, but I'm heading to Birch lake this summer, actually twice, for the first time. My family and I are heading there in mid August, and the guys will be heading back for Labor Day.  We will be after primarily Pike and Walleye.  I can't seem to find a ton of fishing reports for this time of year.  Most of what I find is for Spring action.  We'll be staying at River Point Resort.  Any tips to put my girls on some fish would be GREATLY appreciated!

      Do they have dates for this year
    • Borch
      Been seeing a lot near food lots and corn fields.   With the fields starting to open up turkeys, deer and pheasants have been hitting the freshly exposed ground.

      Big Dick's in Kelliher has a sign up for Shiners.  IDK if live or frozen.  Call Fred's Bait in Deer River 218-246-8710..  Good Luck.  Be Safe.
