Fishing Report / News



Walleye have been slower than usual but still some fish are being caught. The Walleyes being caught on Round Lake have been generally bigger and thicker. Tip-ups with a Walleye Sucker seems to be the way to go. Do not be afraid to try a little deeper if you are getting less action in the shallows.


Pike have been producing the most action thus far. Shiners have been the bait of choice on a tip-up. The active Pike have generally been bigger fish over 30 inches.


Crappie have been a bit slower on the Flowage than usual, but a few spots have been seeing consistent action...particularly the two deeper holes in front of Popple Island. Try fishing between the 20 and 30 foot marks.


Weather this weekend is going to be really nice and pleasant. Expect nice temperatures above the freezing point until next Thursday. There may be some rain on Saturday, but other than that the forecast looks very pleasant.

Ice Depth

16 inches
