Great news…all of the lakes in the Willmar Lakes Area have opened up! Green Lake had ice out early on May 2nd; in plenty of time for the Governor’s Fishing Opener! Excellent crappie and sunfish action is happening in the Nest Lake bay, the fish traps on Elkhorn and Florida and by the culverts of Willmar and Foot Lakes. Stick near the shallow water and the northern and western sides of the lakes for the warmer water temperatures and the best action. As the water warms up in the next week, expect more active fish on George, Big Kandiyohi, South Long, Elizabeth and Solomon lakes. And don’t forget to stop by our local bait shops to get your 2018 fishing license, stock up on bait and get the most current fishing updates.
