Fishing Report for 5-21-19

The spring fishing frenzy is almost here as more lakes are heating up. Norway Lake is still putting out walleye and crappie, while East Solomon Lake and Nest Lake continue to put out panfish. The walleye and crappie are starting to be more active in the shallows on Willmar, Foot, Andrew, and Eagle lakes. The best spots to shore fish right now are along the highway on Ringo Lake, off the pier on Foot Lake, off the fishing pier on Games Lake, and if you’re willing to put some waders on, in the inlet on East Solomon Lake. You could also try by the dam on Lake Calhoun and from the road on Elkhorn Lake. Take your next fishing adventure in the Willmar Lakes Area this Memorial Day Weekend! And don’t forget to stock up on supplies at J & J Hwy 71 Bait & Tackle as they will have extended hours this weekend: Thursday-Monday 5am-9pm.
