According to our fishing expert John Muhich at Buck’s Hardware, the walleyes are finally moving into deeper water.

Walleyes are taking both crawlers and leeches on the reefs at 10- to 18-feet in Saganaga, Seagull, Hungry Jack, Devil Fish, Loon, Homer, and Cascade.

Smallmouths are in 15 to 22 feet on Hungry Jack, not quite as deep on Poplar -- 12 to 18 feet and shallower still at Devil Track 10 to 15 feet.

Spoons and jigs are picking up lake trout in over 45 feet of water on Greenwood Lake, over 55 feet on Loon, and over 30 feet on Daniels.

Word is, spinners are turning rainbows on Leo Lake in 15 feet.
