Local Fishing Report for Friday, Aug. 26


According to our fishing expert, Jon Muich of Buck’s Hardware…for the most part, fish are deep.

Devilfish reports a little walleye action in the 12 to 18 foot range using jigs with minnows or leeches. Check the humps and the wind shore side of the islands. Probably good advice for a lot of the lakes. Crescent was giving up a few using the same M.O.

Up on Sag, walleyes could be had a little deeper, 24 to 32 feet of water with jig and leech or minnow. Lakers were suspended at 50 feet or so in 70 to 80 feet of water. Spoons and Pimples being the lures of choice.

Word on Superior last week was they were long lining them in about 20 feet of water but the temperature has changed significantly around here so head a bit deeper.

Rainbows are hitting on the old standbys: Kimball, Leo, Esther, all good lakes to go and hit. Bring your flies, crawlers and spinners and you should be OK.
