Otter Tail Lake Area Fishing Report

Posted by: Gary Peterson under Fishing Updated: January 11, 2010 - 12:21 PM

Fishing in Otter Tail Lake area continues to be pretty good.

Walleyes are caught in 15 to 30 feet of water.  Perch are finally starting to show up in the shallows or on the first break of Otter Tail Lake.  You will be sorting but some nice fish are being caught.

Panfish are starting to pick up on the smaller lakes.  Look to the weed lines in 10 to 18 feet of water.

Ice conditions in the area are excellent and most people are driving their vehicles.  Snow cover is 6 to 10 inches on the ice so getting around is pretty easy.  All accesses are in great shape.

Always be sure to check ice conditions if you don't see tracks in area.  Give us a call for the latest conditions and we hope to put you on some fish!  Ken's Tackle - 218-495-2895 or
