According to our fishing expert Jon Muhich, the weather’s been good, but fishing is a little slow.
The weather has cooperated quite well lately and there’s plenty of fisherman going out but there has been some whining about a slowdown in the fishing.
Lake trout were hitting on Sag this week in 50 to 65 feet using rainbow chubs and ciscoes with spoons and jigs. Most reports said they were suspended up the column. Walleye luck was intermittent using twisters and jigging raps in 30 to 40 feet. But remember its Sag and talking to the residents up there will give you more current information.
Greenwood lakers were still fairly active. Some were deeper than 60 feet using spoons and ciscoes. Birch Lake also reported nice laker action in 50 feet where the fish were suspended at 25 feet. Try a beaded hook with a minnow or cisco.
Splake were also hitting in 15 feet on jigs and spoons tipped with minnow heads.
Speaking of splake Thrasher Lake was giving up a few last week. Ice flies and waxies or minnow heads in 8 to 18 feet of water. Mink had slowed a bit but it’s so convenient it’s always worth a shot. As is Trout Lake.
