Alexandria area: Walleye fishing has been good on several area lakes. Anglers are having the most success in depths of 18 to 22 feet. Walleye anglers on nearby Otter Tail County lakes are having success in the shallows and over the weeds. Northern pike have been active on the weedy flats and drop-off zones. Anglers are having success using jigs and minnows.
Big Stone Lake: The Minnesota-South Dakota border lake has a solid walleye bite, especially in depths of 7 to 11 feet in daytime hours. Largemouth bass are active in the shallows near the rock-to-weed transitions. The bluegill bite is excellent, especially in shallow depths.
Duluth: Anglers who fish Lake Superior are having success with lake trout and coho salmon. Most of the fish are getting caught offshore as they transition to deeper waters. Anglers on the St. Louis River are finding smallmouth bass in the mid- to upper sections of the river. Perch have been very active on the flats. Walleyes are spread out in all sections of the river. The inland waters are giving up nice numbers of largemouth bass, sunnies and crappies. Anglers on area streams are reporting brook and brown trout.
Grand Rapids area: Fishing is off to a good start throughout the area. Anglers are finding walleyes on Big Jessie, Big Split Hand, Bowstring, Round, Trout and Wabana lakes. Deer, Pokegama, Trout, Turtle and Wabana lakes are producing good smallmouth bass action.
Lake Kabetogama: Walleye fishing got off to a slow start but has started to improve. Anglers working from docks are having increased success. While the walleye bite has been slow, the pike and smallmouth bass action is good, especially in shallow water.
Southeast Minnesota streams: According to the weekly report from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, area streams are behaving great. The streams are mostly clear or with just slightly-off water clarity after rain late last week. Hatches of Light Hendrickson's, Little Yellow Stones, Blue-Winged Olives, and scattered caddis have been reported.
