Bitter Lake has produced a few walleyes this past week.  Fishing pressure has slowed lately. – Submitted by Bitter Lake Lodge, September 9, 2019

All methods are working on Bitter Lake.  18-20 feet of water seems to be holding the walleyes.  Quality and quantity not an issue. - Submitted by Just Lake It, September 3, 2019

Lake Kampeska
Patience is the key on Kampeska.  Plan on fishing multiple spots to find the walleyes.  Results should be good once you find where the walleyes have congregated.  Few perch and crappi's in between walleye bite. – Submitted by Just Lake It, August 19, 2019

If we could just get out on the water without drowning, the fishing would be great.  We are choosing to look at this as a positive, filling the lakes and that always means good fishing.  Right now the discussion in the coffee shop (because nobody wants to fish in the rain) is about how good the ice fishing is going to be this winter!  Lots of fishermen just waiting to get on the water.  Watch for photos on Lynn Lake Lodge’s Facebook page later on this week.  The rain will be done today.   – Submitted by Lynn Lake Lodge, September 9, 2019

Water temp. has been falling fast this past week - water temp. 58-59 degrees.  The walleye bite has been good with fish being fairly aggressive, biting on cranks as well as live bait presentations.  The fish are definitely in the shallows.  The pike bite was very active this past week.  Almost any type of presentation was working.  The smallmouth are in their fall patterns and lots of fish in that 17-19 inch class.  - Submitted by Fish Hunter Guide Service, October 1, 2019

Busy weekend here with quite a few people around.  Opitz is still good with a fair amount of fish.  It's a 2 walleye that you will have to sort through to find the 15 inchers.  Antelope was busy but the fish are a little smaller.  Blue Dog did pretty well.  Bitter Lake also did good.  Guys are sliding over to Big Stone for the perch and blue gill.   – Submitted by Sportsman’s Cove, September 3, 2019
