First time fishing this lake. Fished January 12-13. Fished 4-8 fow with tip ups for walleyes for two whole nights in the mornings and evenings also. Action was steady first hour of light and last of hour of light. Caught a few in the hour after dark but nothing the rest of the night till morning. Tried to find gills or crappies in the day, but only managed to catch 4” perch everywhere we tried. Prolly tried 20 different spots all various depths, caught tiny perch in all spots waxie sand minnows. Would only ever go back to target walleyes again.

Launch is plenty deep, but it is gravel.  There are concrete slabs at the waters edge and that is it.

Anyone care to comment on the landing?  Never been to the lake, but will be in the area bass fishing(C&R), and was thinking a day trip here would be bit different  from our usual stops.  We have a couple of 19' Rangers, that probably need a concrete ramp, and enough water to float the boat off drive-on trailers.  Is the public landing suitable?

Thanks,

LL

No two ways about it, the smallies were hungry. The fishing was so good off the pier, we didn't have to take out the boat. Most were caught on crawlers, but some on cranks. My fishing partner Peggy (a net) did a great job of netting this nice one. What a great Labor Day weekend!

THANKS to  our hosts, Howard and Pat, another spectacular weekend that won't be forgotten.

Hey Linksters,

 I am heading up to Birch lake again this weekend, how has the fishing been, and is there anything new going on with the lake? Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

JB I was there a couple weeks ago and the walleye fishing was good, all fish caught at dusk on the weed lines with crawlers. The 3 days we were there were hot, sunny, and calm so we did not get out for any Muskie fishing. We did try from smallies every morning and it was the slowest I had ever seen, managed one small one and that's it.

Can't wait to get back up in October.

Fishing only from the pier, my fishing partner Peg caught 6 smallies on a slowly retrieved crawler and I got this one on a rattle trap. Is it the time of year or is the small mouth population taking off on this lake? Another spectacular weekend on Birch lake with fine friends,food, foos and tunes. To our hosts Howard and Pat, thank you for yet another unforgettable Labor Day.
