There have been reports of some limits of walleyes this past week.  Consistent weather and high waters should help the fishing productivity. – Submitted by Bitter Lake Lodge, June 11, 2019

We had 2 guests arrive Sunday evening and left on Tuesday noon.  They caught and released 30 walleyes at HHL Lake.  25 of the walleyes were over 22”.  They will be back later to catch a 30” walleye!  The weekend guests found a variety of fish on nearby lakes.  The little storm fronts definitely affected the fish bite. – Submitted by Hidden Hill Lodge, June 11, 2019

What is really a plus about Lake Kampeska is it does not have heavy fishing pressure, and holds a surprising number of fish.  You never know what you will catch on your hook:  walleye, pike, black and white crappie, perch, silver bass, small-mouth bass and even an occasional carp.  Water temp. is approaching 70 degrees and the bite is on. – Submitted by Just Lake It with Katie Hansen, June 3, 2019

Reports best crankbait trolling walleye bite of the season.  9’ of water is producing most walleyes along with some northern.  Spinners and live bait also producing.  Weed growth just starting, panfish will start soon. – Submitted by Wing N Fin Resort, June 11, 2019

Lots of activity everywhere this week.  The Mayfly hatch is about done, and on warmer days, we have been seeing some nice panfish come in.  Seeing quite a few BIG walleyes come off Lynn this week.  Rush has been the go-to lake recently.  Just starting to use leeches – always a favorite on Lynn.  It has been a good week.  You should be fishing! – Submitted by Lynn Lake Lodge, June 11, 2019

Water temp. is about 68-69 degrees.  The fishing has been good.  The walleye, pike, and bass action has been very consistent.  The panfish bite has not really started yet, but with this warm weather the bluegill and crappie action should improve daily.  Some of the lake have gone through turnover.  So if you are looking for good fishing action – now is the time.  – submitted by Fish Hunter Guide Service, June 6, 2019

Good success yesterday (Saturday) with lots of people and a good crowd.  Rush Lake east of Webster, North and South Lakes are doing well.  Lots of guys fishing there.  Waubay Lake is doing better on walleye at various depths.  Bitter Lake is picking up.  Water temp is pushing the 60’s.  The bays are hitting the mid 60’s later in the afternoon.  Most docks are in now in place. – Submitted by Sportsman’s Cove, June 2, 2019

Water level is high, which means more water to fish!  If careful, you’ll be able to safely get back in one of the many secluded bays (that for years were unattainable) and catch pike, walleye and bass (both large and small mouth).  Roy is a great fishery.  Shore fishing is also producing fish and a reminder:  Don’t forget to bring the NET! – Submitted by Just Lake It with Katie Hansen, June 3, 2019
