The fishing has been a little tough this week.  We are seeing occasional walleyes off Lynn, Bitter, and Waubay, but not much for numbers.  The wind and rain predicted for this weekend doesn't help much, but great for the ducks!  Lots of ducks in the sloughs! – Lynn Lake Lodge, submitted October 12, 2023

A lot of people fishing.  A good crowd in the area.  Bitter lake is seeing an amazing amount of walleye.  A lot below 14 inches, mostly in the 12-14 inch range.  So a lot of sorting, but a pretty active bite.  Waubay is very busy with guys looking for perch.  They're also getting nice quality walleye.  There are still a few going up to Drywood, Lynn and Mid-Lynn.  A few are looking for blue gills. Water temps are in the mid 60's.  – Sportsman’s Cove, submitted September 26, 2023
