Nothing for open water fishing. Unconfirmed reports has 2" of ice on west side of Emily. Also some smaller lakes have iced over. Will update this report when I have more information.
Not enough people fishing for an accurate report. Everyone is waiting for ice.
Same as last 2-3 weeks only fewer die hards still fishing. Reno and Waska are still best two lakes.
Fall walleye bite continues. Only die hard anglers going, but fishing is good. Reno and Waska are the best area lakes to try.
Same as last week. Weather has been bad this past week and there have been fewer die hard walleye fishermen going out.
Still a good fall walleye bite happening. Jigs and minnows in 14-18 feet of water has been best on Waska. A nice thing is this bite is happening during the day. A lot of boats headed to Reno this past week. No reports back but considering the traffic it means walleye are hitting. Still boats heading for Long lake. No reports from Emily. Crappies on north end of Osakis.
Same as last two weeks. As reported this strong walleye bite should continue all the way to ice up.
Fall walleye bite has become very good. See last week's report for the methods. Area lakes that have turned on are Waska, Emily, Long, and Reno. Osakis still good for crappies. These patterns will continue all the way to ice up.
Starting to see the fall walleye patterns starting on all area lakes. Been a cool week and water temps have dropped to 50 degree range. On Waska, jigs and minnows during the day. Sunset go to shallow running cranks. The area lakes are mostly a minnow bite. Crappies are hitting on the north end of Osakis. No other reports of fish being caught.
Still waiting! Water temps in all area lakes remains in upper 60's. For a good fall walleye bite we need water to be in mid to upper 50's. Keep checking this report as I will update if walleye bite is consistent.
