Fishing Report for 5-23-23

Anglers have been pulling walleye from Nest Lake and Diamond Lake using leeches. Active crappie have been found on Long Lake and Lake Florida using crawlers and waxworms. The walleye and crappie are starting to be more active in the shallows on Willmar, Foot, Andrew, and Eagle lakes. Bass are also starting to become more active by the inlet on Eagle Lake.

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. The warmer weather this weekend should prove to be beneficial for fisherman as the waters heat up and the fish become even more active. Take your next fishing adventure in the Willmar Lakes Area this Memorial Day Weekend!
