Summer is officially here!! Devils Lake, ND is fishing well despite all the weather that has been thrown our way. WIND, rain, and just a lot of unstable weather has not stopped the walleyes from smacking.
The most consistent presentation has been a bottom bouncer and spinner this past week. We have been tipped them with a crawler or a leech. Best depths seem to be in that 4-10 ft area; however, we have caught some fish out deeper (20-30 ft). Good areas to work this time of year include flooded roads, wind blow shorelines, and weed lines. Fish move around so be persistent and you will find fish.
Pike fishing is still good, but as water temps continue to increase, look for them to be a bit more elusive. White bass have been hitting in the back bays and around rip-rap shorelines for anglers looking to pursue them.
Overall, life is good in Devils Lake! Enjoy summer!!
