Much the same as last week only slower. No walleye reports from the area and few reports of panfish or northerns. Check the Glenwood side of Waska for both panfish and northerns. Pretty slow!
Walleye fishing on all area lakes is very slow this past week. Sunnies and crappies still hitting br Glenwood on Waska. Also getting some bigger northerns in same area. Small perch and an a few walleyes being caufgt on Reno in 20 feet of water.
Walleye activity has slowed up on most area lakes, the exception being lake Reno. Fish in 20-24 feet of water using shiners or fatheads. You will also catch keeper size perch also. Sunfish and crappies still being caught on Glenwood side of Waska. Also some bigger northerns being caught in that area using tip-ups and big sucker minnows.
Fishing continues to be great on all area lakes. See report from last week. Ice is now at least 18 inches thick and advise normal winter caution. Get out and have some fun!
Ice on area lakes is now 12 inches or more. Normal winter caution advised. Walleyes still being caught on Waska in late afternoon using jigs and minnows in 12-15 feet of water. Sunnies and crappies biting on Glenwood end of Waska using waxworms and small jigs. West side of lake Reno has been good for walleyes. Also south end of lake Mary has been good for walleyes.
Ice thickness on area lakes is now 7-10 inches. Wheelers are hauling some bigger houses out on Waska. Still advising caution! Starting to hear some good reports of walleye being caught on Waska. Best time is late afternoon in 12-15 feet of water. Use jigs and fathead minnows. Also some reports of crappie and sunnies being caught on Little Mary. Should be a good weekend to get the fish house on the lake!
Ice conditions remain much the same. Use extreme caution on all area lakes! Thickness is anywhere from 2-5 inches and not even on any lakes. The 10 inches of snow last weekend is not good for ice making. Area lakes that are being fished are Reno, Malmedahl, Little Mary, and Waska.
Special report on ice conditions. Use extreme caution on all area lakes. One person fell through ice on lake Pelican. This is first day of ice activity on Waska. Portables all over the lake. Not in the hole yet. Ice activity on Reno and Malmedahl. Do not think ice is entirely safe yet, so be careful.
Ice fishing on east side of lake Reno for walleyes. Use jigs and minnows. Some small lakes remain fishable, but a lot of area lakes opened up due to wind and warm temps. That will change this weekend with big coo down being predicted. Will see lot more fishing next week.
We do have ice and area lakes are being fished. Use extreme caution as ice is 2-4 inches thick. Lakes Emily, Pelican, Waska, Malmedahl, and Reno all have fishable ice. Northerns being caught on Malmedahl and walleyes on the other area lakes. Be safe and careful!
