Report from September 14-16. Weather was warm and so was the lake. Conditions were great for swimming. I threw for Musky for a few days with no fish seen. There were still a lot of pleasure boaters with the weather being so pleasant. Nice to be out water quality is good. Mostly fishing the middle chain.

Hello all,  friend of mine and myself coming up to the Eagle River Chain the week of 9-10-18. 3 days of fishing planned searching for Walleye and Musky. Our first time here, so looking for advice on how to to fish the chain this time of year, maybe what baits work this time of year, which lakes better for Walleye, Musky, etc. You can PM me if you would like. Thanks for you time.

Tuffy2:

With regard to the water temperatures, it does lead one to other seasonal locations...  For instance, as your water temps go up, you can determine whether fish will be moving off the shorelines, going into weeds, heading to offshore structure, then to deeper gravel/rock and finally turnover when the entire water column is open for business, then just before freeze-up, back shallow again.

You may use other clues that put you on fish, but water temps give you a more on the spot time frame for when fish are making their seasonal transitions. 

Also although somewhat scientifically being reversed, most musky guys try not to fish for them over 80 degrees.

Why all of the interest this time of year in water temperatures? I don’t fish water temperatures after the spawn, so am I missing something? Just curious.

Fished Eagle lake this last week. The weeds were not around. Did fine some small area weeds and caught walleyes small ones under 10 inches and did have one at 16 and one at 17 inches.  4 feet of water In the slot. Caught on leeches. All released. Got into some crappie in the middle of the day with minnows. Sun was shining, went back in the evening nothing. Nice weather for the week.
