Fishing Report for 8-21-23

Few anglers have been out lately. With the recent heat wave, surface water temperatures have bounced back so the best time to fish has been in the low light hours; early mornings and evenings. The walleye bite has picked up on Big Kandiyohi Lake in the 16-20 foot range with crawlers or leeches working the best. Sunfish, bass, and northern pike are biting on most area lakes when anglers use a small jig or spinner rig tipped with a night crawler in the weed lines. Crappie have been biting on Ringo Lake using crappie minnow. We’re excited for the temperatures to cool a bit as the fall bite can be pretty exciting in the Willmar Lakes Area!
