FISH EAGLE RIVER

WEEKLY FISHING REPORT

The recent uptick in temperature has started minor panfish action, with Crappies being the most active so far. Northern and Walleye have stayed true to their winter trends. Reminder: some area lakes are also marked with barrels for snowmobiles, so be sure to punch your holes away from the trail areas.

Fishing Report

Northern Pike: We are finding fish on the weed edges and in the deeper weeds. On the edges, the set up should be tip ups set a foot or so off the bottom.  When fishing the deep weeds, set your tip ups so that your bait is just above the tops of the weeds.

Walleye: These fish are being caught in and around weeds.  Setting tip ups on the weed edges baited with walleye suckers or medium golden shiners in low light conditions seem to be best.  Also, jigging in the same areas with baits (like the buckshot rattle spoon) are producing fish.  The other good option is on the tops of rock humps for good spots in the early evening.

Panfish: Bluegills are being found in the weeds using small jigs tipped with waxies, spikes or tipped with plastic.  Perch are being caught on the deep weed edge where the mud meets. Crappies are being caught in the weeds mixed in with some gills and are still out suspended over the deeper holes and mudflats.

Information for this week’s fishing report was provided by Colin Crawford from Colin Crawford’s Guide Service.
