Fishing is excellent in the Willmar Lakes Area! Anglers are fishing every lake in the county and having great success, especially with northerns. Diamond Lake has been popular for crappies the last week and anglers are going to East Solomon Lake and Green Lake for sunfish. Walleye are being searched out at most lakes, with moderate success. Minnetaga Lake was reported to have very active walleye in the last week. The trick now is to find a quiet spot on the lake away from other fishermen so you don’t disturb the fish. Most lakes still have 12-15 inches of ice.
