FISH EAGLE RIVER
WEEKLY FISHING REPORT – 01/11/22
Walleye fishing has been great. People are getting them all over. And some nice fish being caught too. Early mornings and late evenings into dark have been the best times with tip ups and either shiners or walleye suckers. Both of them working equally well. People are getting them on deeper weed lines in 8 to 16 feet, deeper rock humps and on Sand grass. Have not heard a ton of fish being caught jigging but the ones we did hear about were all on acme hyper rattles.
Crappie, perch and bluegill fishing has been great too. When the Temperature is warm enough people are getting them on tip downs with Crappie minnows and Rosie reds. People jigging are just using small tungsten jigs tipped with a wax worm or a red or white spike and wigglers. You will find both of them scattered around green weeds but your best bet at finding them is popping holes and jumping around in deeper water. We have found them suspended around 10 to 20 feet down in water is deep is 40 feet. But you do have to move around especially for those suspended ones.
Northern pike has been excellent. Again you can find these fish all over. Shallow green weeds out to deep sand grass in water up to 30 feet deep. Just a tip up and a large shiner 18 inches or so off the bottom is the best way to catch them. It’s also a good way to keep busy during the day if the walleyes are not eating because usually the northerns are!
No reports on bass the last couple weeks now.
Ice has been good even with the last snow. We are starting to see some trucks on the ice now even though I would not recommend that but snowmobile‘s, four wheeler and side by side travel yes great right now with not a lot of snow or slush on top of most places having a solid foot or more of ice! Good luck out there!
