According to our fishing expert Jon Muhich of Buck’s Hardware, the trout opener is just around the corner.
Coming up on the 14th is the big trout opener outside the Boundary Waters. Plenty of anglers will be heading up to their favorite rainbow, splake or brookie lake.
If you’re wondering about a few to try, one can check out Trout Lake, Musquash, Leo, Mink, Moss and Esther lakes.
As for walleyes this past wee, Elbow was still producing a few along with some perch. A jig and minnow was the lure of choice. Devil Track was also faring well.
Up on East Twin people were catching fish in twelve to 15 feet or so with jig and minnow. Hungry Jack is doing fine on walleyes in 15 to 20 feet or so and the northerns were also biting. We also heard about some luck on Caribou Lake in 12 feet or so.
