Fishing Report for 8-23-22
While the walleye bite has slowed a bit, nice numbers of fish are being taken during the first two hours and last two hours of the day. Trolling shad raps and dragging lindy rigs tipped with crawlers or minnows has worked well for many anglers. Walleye are being pulled from a depth of 15-25 feet from Green Lake near the Castle flats. Other lakes to try for walleye would be Eagle, Foot, Elkhorn, Ringo and South Long in the 10-20 foot depths. Northern pike are being caught by anglers casting or trolling spinner baits over the tops of the weed flats in 6-12 foot depths. The most active northerns are being pulled at sundown on Elkhorn, South Long, Foot, and Ringo lakes. Many panfish can also be found in and around the deeper weedlines in the evening hours on Nest, Henderson, and Point lakes. For steady panfish action, use leeches, nightcrawlers or wax worms on a small 1/32-ounce jig. Bass have been very active on most area lakes. The bite for most species will continue to improve as water temperatures cool and fish become increasingly active.
