jr - Well, your first trip to Ely and your first post on FM. I think you're on to something.

I haven't really fished the chain, so I can't be of much help. But, there have been many posts regarding these bodys of water and if you do a search on this site for White Iron, I'm guessing you'll get all kinds of hints.

Good luck and I'm sure you'll enjoy the heck out of the area.

best bet is by the inlet. fish at the depth where you mark fish. will have to sort out the keepers. another good bet is a larger flat out from white iron beach resort. where are u staying and when? ill be up on white iron tues-sunday of this week

It's pretty rocky, expect some snags, use the right tackle. On Whiteiron there is a waterfall/hidden stream of somesort that produced some bites. I got lucky near an island in the middle catchin' a walleye and caught the largest small mouth bass in my life on that lake. Watchout for underwater rocks that may bust your prop.

you won't have to pull your boat,you can travel into White Iron from Farm.We fished White Iron a few years ago.The 3 spots we did the best were around the bridge where White Iron dumps into Farm,where the river comes into White Iron at the south end of the lake and the main lake hump out front of White Iron Beach Resort.

The hot bait right now is still leeches, with chubs coming in a close second. Not too many hits on crawlers right now.

We had some customers come in from Pipestone and they did quite well, mostly on leeches. Smallies were the best. They had a DeLiar scale and weighed in an almost 8 lb smallie and a 7 lb one too. Most of theirs were in the 2-4 pound range.

The walleyes they hit were also on leeches and an orange jig, not so deep in the lake anymore.

Their northern pike did well on some pike colored Rapalas and a tiger one too. The biggest pike was caught on a red/white spoon.

Of course this area isn't real close to the Farm Lake, etc chain, but they are all deep lakes for the most part.

I'm sure Bill at Timber Trail can put you on to the hot spots in the lakes nearby.

Have a great time! And bring your rainsuit! wink.gif

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
