Emily, Stenerson, Villard, and NE bay of Reno have 3-5 inches of ice and are fishable. Waska and other area lakes are capped over and should be ready to go next week. Just heard some guys were fishing Pomme. Be careful and safe!
The northeast bay of Reno is iced over and a few brave souls are fishing. Lake Villard and other small lakes are iced over. Waska is still open. Emily should be iced over but no reports for sure.
Everyone is waiting for ice. With the cold temps there might be some early activity by the end of next week! Look to the small shallow lakes to start first. Keep the wind down. I will post more ice reports when it starts to happen.
Walleyes very easy to catch in late fall. Waska go to 20-22 feet of water with shiners or fats. Reno go to 16-20 feet for walleyes. Not many fishing now as most fishermen are waiting for ice.
Reno and Waska are best bets for walleyes. We are deep into the fall pattern which means walleyes are easiest to carch than other times of the year. A lot of people are putting boats away and starting to think ice fishing.Our ice orders are just starting to arrive.
Nice day Thursday and walleye fishermen were out in force! Reno and Waska are still the two best walleye lakes in the area. Check out last week’s report. No reports on sunnies and bass in any of the area lakes. Pheasants are starting to show up as the crops are being harvested.
