Inconsistent every where. Late night walleye bite on Waska. No other good walleye reports. Sunfish are slow. Crappies starting to bite on Glenwood side after dark.
Walleye fishing has gotten better with the warmer weather. On Waska the best depth has been 17-19 feet. Use fatheads and BB Rattlers. Also shiner minnows have worked really well. Best times have been from 4:00 to 7 ;00 in afternoon. Still a good walleye bite late at night. Reno same as Waska. Lake Emily has been hot for walleyes. No reports for sunfish. Crappies are starting on Glenwood side from 5:00 to 8:00 at evening.
Ice thickness on all area lakes is over 15". Same fishing report as last week. Not many crappies yet on Waska but will get better in Feb.
Ice conditions on most area lakes is 12" but can vary. Have seen a few trucks and large wheel houses on area lakes. Walleyes on Reno and Waska have slowed. There is a real good bite on Waska from 11pm-2am. You have to be there when they bite! Panfish activity on Glenwood side of Waska has improved. Maple lake also has been good for panfish.
Ice thickness on most area lakes is 10" or more. Still no vehicles or large wheel houses yet, but with cold weather coming by end of weekend this will change. Waska and Reno the two best walleye lakes. Maple and Little Mary are best panfish lakes.
Happy New Year! Emily has over 8" of ice. Walleyes have slowed on Emily. Waska has 6-8"of ice. Wheelers and small houses are all over the lake. No big wheel houses yet. Walleyes have been consistent. Reno has also been good for walleyes. Panfish have been good on Maple and Little Mary. No vehicle travel has been seen on any area lakes.
Emily has 8" of ice and walleyes have been good from the get go. Waska has 4"to 7" of ice. Not even all over. Small fish houses are all over the lake. Reports of good walleye activity. Be very careful and go get them! East side of Reno has also been hot for walleyes.
All area lakes have 4-7 inches of ice. Have not seen any wheelers on the lakes but a lot of portable houses. Sunnies and crappies on Mary and Maple. Walleyes on Waska,Emily,Pelican and Reno. Be safe and check the ice when going out.
Minnewaska has 3-4 inches of ice. Small portables or walking would be the safest option. I think most area lakes have 3-6 inches of ice. Everyone is fishing for walleyes. Be safe and have fun! We will be open Christmas. Closing early for Christmas eve.
See yesterday's report. Lakes Pelican and Gilcrist have 3-4 inches of ice. Also hearing some of the smaller lakes are good.
