Lake Vermilion Fishing Report

The warming water and more stable weather have really turned the bite. The best walleye fishing has been in 18-24 feet of water in the sand adjacent to mud-bottom areas.  One day they want leeches, the next worms, and the next minnows; so, continue to bring an assortment of bait with you.

Muskie fishing has been best in the shallow weeds with some really nice fish being caught.  Try using black and orange bucktails worked fast over the top of the weeds.  The open water muskie trolling bite has been slowly picking up with the night bite being the most productive.

The smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing couldn’t get much better! They are biting on pretty much anything you throw at them.

The mayflies are just starting to appear with some small hatches in isolated areas.  The main mayfly hatch should still be about a week or two away.

Now is a great time to be out on Lake Vermilion as June is the best time of year for multi-species action with lots of big fish just waiting to get caught!
