Bitter Lake
Fishing has been picking up.  Some reports of some limits of walleyes being caught.  Shallow water seems to be working the best. – Bitter Lake Lodge

Dry Lake 2 (Clark County)
Anglers report good success.  Lots of pike action using jig and minnows and crankbaits.  Pike ranging in size from 2-8 lbs.  Walleye bite has been very good.  Walleye biting leeches, minnows, and crawlers using slip bobbers and jigs.  Lots of walleyes in the 18”-24” range.  Best bite is early and late in the day, with pike active during the day. – Double P Ranch

Lake Traverse
Lake Traverse continues to provide a quality mixed bag.  Walleye numbers are excellent, bass and blue gill bite is picking up.  Northern and catfish too! – Wing N Fin Resort

Lynn Lake
Lots of wind this weekend made fishing problematic.  Those that were able to keep their boats on the lakes caught walleyes.  Nice ones.  Half inch of rain this morning (Monday) and the promise of more tonight is a great thing.  Not too many details on what is working, but we are selling mostly leeches and minnows.  If anyone has a handle on the wind, could you possibly reduce it a little bit? – Lynn Lake Lodge

Northeast South Dakota

Trophy walleyes biting all day long on Hidden Hill Lake using worms, minnows and plastics. – Hidden Hill Lodge
