Fishing report for 11/24/17

Nothing new since last post on ice conditions. Waska has uneven thickness. Lot of portables on Reno. Emily and Reno should be good for walleyes. Portables on Little Mary fishing panfish. Have not heard anything else. Will update reports as needed.

Ice conditions on area lakes

People are starting to venture out on area lakes. Lake Emily has 5-6 inches of ice and portable houses are used. Little Lake Mary is the same as Emily. I think there will be people on Waska, Reno, Freeborn, Rachael, and other small area lakes.

Fishing report for 10/20/17

A very good week for walleye fishermen! Jigs and minnows are preferred bait during the day. Shallow cranks are best in the evening. Sunfish are still active on Waska. Bass have been good on all area lakes as have the walleyes.

Fishing report for 10/13/17

Will add to last week’s report. Walleyes are into fall pattern on all area lakes. Starting to hear walleyes being caught at dark on Waska using raps in 7-8 feet of water. Duck hunters had better success this past week. No northern ducks yet. Very few pheasants and crops in the field will hamper the opener tomorrow.

Fishing report for 10/6/17

Water temps are below 60 degrees! Walleyes on Waska are starting to be caught with jigs and minnows or trolling with spinners and minnows. Best depth has been 15-18 feet of water. Waska sunnies are still providing the most action. Shore fishing on Emily has been good using live bait. Jigs and minnows will work for boats on Emily. Reno walleyes are being caught in 15-18 feet of water using crawlers or minnows. Walleyes will continue to bite all the way to ice up!
