On the big lake’s upper shore from Twin Points to Hovland, fishing pressure was mostly light to moderate this past weekin the lake and light in the tributaries.
Water surface temperatures were warm along the upper shore with consistent readings in open waters in the 52 to 55 degree range. Anglers caught good numbers of Lake Trout from all upper shore areas, particularly near shore in depths of 60 to 120 feet. The fish were generally 18 to 25 inches long and weighed 2 to 6 pounds.
Anglers caught larger Lake Trout, with several reports of fish in the mid- teens to twenty pound class, but overall, larger lake trout have been inconsistent and on the move, with larger fish present one day and seemingly gone the next.
