Fishing was great this afternoon, fished from 1pm to 6pm. Between the 2 of us we had 50 flags, lots of small walleyes but managed to get 9 keepers, 15"-19". Was actually surprised that we only got 3 notherns, although I had a nice one on and caught a tooth half way up the hole. We had 8 doubles and 1 triple, made for a pretty exciting afternoon of fishing.

Can you drive on Michigamme? I have not tried fishing it before, but my dad and I are getting skunked left and right, so we need to try something new! 

Thanks everyone, 

Dave

Fished Thursday and Friday, action was very slow both days. Thursday mainly fished for walleye and northern. Walleyes were biting very light, ended up with about 10-12 flags, 5 small walleyes and 1 little northern, fished in 4-12fow. Friday we fished for crappies and bluegills for about 4-5hrs, marked some fish, but wouldn't hit anything, wigglers, waxies, crappie minnows, small jiggin raps, or ultralite rippn raps. Anything we seemed to throw at them, didn't interest them. Had tip ups out as well with no flags.

I'd love to learn this body of water as it looks full of potential. Plus the scenery is really nice. My wife and I fished here on the 7th and the 8th. We put in 5.5 hours in the rain and mist on the 7th and only caught 15 fish. A 26.25 inch pike was the best fish. My wife caught a 14.5 inch walleye. Didn't keep the pike and we didn't catch anything else worth keeping. A few small bass and a few good size rock bass. On Saturday we fished in the sun and clouds for 6 hours and only caught 10 fish. I didn't catch a single walleye and my wife caught an 11 incher. A few small pike, small smallies and an okay size rock bass and the fish of the day was an 11.5 inch crappie. So much structure that looks so good just didn't hold any fish.I should have hired a guide.

We got lots and lots of good sized pike and rock bass. I guess you can catch those any where here, a channel by the dam produced the best walleye, lots of smallies 15 inch average though. Everything we caught stayed at the reservoir. i think more people need to practice catch and release here as the numbers we thought were a little low. didnt see your tip till we got back. thank you though

Does anyone one know the general whereabouts of the fish cribbs that were sunk in March of 2015?
