Devils Lake Fishing Report 5/23

Walleye fishing on Devils Lake has been unusually sporadic for this time of
year. Cold fronts the past couple weeks have keep water temps down, but warmer
weather the past couple of days is bringing temps up and fishing should start
improving fast. Places where some walleyes are being caught include Holy Bay
and the Howard Farm area in the Flats, Pelican Lake, the cattails near the old
Doc Hagen area in Six Mile, and the shallow bays in East Bay. Most anglers are
cranking #5 shad raps and #7 countdowns, or are pitching jigs tipped with
minnows, leeches, or powerbait. A few anglers have reported some action in the
trees with slip bobber rigs as well. Pike fishing on the other hand has been
awesome. Anglers are catching pike in most areas of the lake with the areas
mentioned above for walleyes being the best for pike as well. Try using
daredevils, shad raps, countdowns, husky jerks, and rattlin rouges if your
cranking, or leeches, nightcrawlers, smelt, or herring. White bass fishing is
just starting to pick up. For shore fishing, Channel A, the storm sewer area,
rip rap areas along the dike, and the bridges are all starting to produce some
fish. Boaters are reporting cranking up white bass in the shallower bays
around the lake as well. We welcome all visitors to our area and hope you have
a great Memorial Day
