Perch fishing on Devils Lake continues to be up and down. Each day a few do
well, but most anglers have been struggling to find nicer sized perch. Many
anglers are reporting catching a lot of smaller fish though. The best spots
have been the area from Military Point in Creel Bay all the way to the Towers,
Swanson's Point, the Stromme Addition area, Foughty's Point, Haybale Bay,
Skadsens, and the Woods Rutten area. Anglers are using Hali's, genz worms,
forage minnows, kastmasters, and ratfinkies tipped with wax worms, minnow
heads, spikes, or perch eyes. The walleye fishing has been fair in the early
morning and sunset periods. Areas producing fish this past week have been Doc
Hagen's, the old sunken Flats road, Mission Bay, the trees near the Casino, Ft.
Totten/Cactus Point, Old Mil, and Foughty's Point. Try using buckshot
rattlespoons, sonars, ripple tails, or smaller jigs tipped with minnow heads.
Pike fishing remains pretty good with the best spots being Bud Bay, Old Mil
Bay, the sunken Ziebach's pass road, the Ft. Totten area, and the north end of
Six Mile and Creel Bays. Another option is Morrison Lake north of town. Try
using smelt, herring, or large minnows with tip ups. The Lake Access Committee
is clearing trails on the lake to assist fisherman with travel. This weekend
is the local Shiverfest Festival with a lot of activities going on in the
area. Good Luck and have a great
