State fishing report

Lake Minnetonka: Walleyes have been hitting floating jigs and leeches during daylight hours in 24 to 26 feet. At night, walleyes are taking slip bobbers and leeches in the channels. Bass and sunfish are hugging the shorelines on all lakes, and crappies also are being caught in 8 to 10 feet of water on Lake Independence and Long Lake.

Rainy Lake: Anglers have been landing lots of walleyes and crappies by jigging or slowly trolling minnows in 15 to 20 feet of water in the bays. Walleyes are expected to soon move to underwater reefs and deeper water. Smallmouth bass have been active along rocky shorelines, and northerns have been hitting at the mouths of larger bays.

Bemidji area: Walleyes are being caught in the larger lakes on the shallow flats, along the breaklines and in deeper water on the edge of hard lake bottoms and mud basins. Walleyes in deeper water have been feeding on a combination of minnows, perch and insect larvae.

Willmar area: Water temperatures have warmed to 70 degrees, and panfish, bass and northerns are biting on nearly every lake in the area. Anglers are having success shore fishing with shallow shad raps on Willmar Lake, Foot Lake and Ringo Lake. Walleyes, crappies and sunfish have been pulled from 15 to 30 feet of water on Green Lake during evening hours, and reports from Lake Solomon also have been good.

Cass Lake: Anglers have had good luck and enjoyed near-perfect weather. Walleyes are being caught using a jig and minnow, and some are having success using crawlers and leeches. Good-sized perch are being taken on Pike Bay at 9 feet using fathead minnows.

Isle/Onamia: The walleye bite has been slowly improving on Lake Mille Lacs. Minnows and leeches were producing the most walleyes, with night crawlers lagging behind. Depths of 14 to 18 feet were best during the day, with 7 to 12 feet best during the evening.
