Have caught lots of small walleye, perch, some ok smallies
Three Frabill flags,
My parents had a house on Birch Lake for 21 years. I have fished it many, many times. Message me and I will try to help you out.
Is anyone a regular to this lake or fish it frequently? Curious on the past year of activity as I will now be a frequent visitor. Please pm thanks.
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?

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.
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.
Can't wait to get back up in October.
