Although fall fishing is just around the corner now…trolling fishermen are still catching them in the same areas as the last few weeks. Fish are biting at about 15-25 feet below surface, about 30-50 feet from the shore on the northwest end of the lake. It has been especially productive from around Mile Marker 15 southeast along Hwy 287 toward the Grayling Arm. The red on gold and orange on gold Kamlooper spoons continue to work well; the rainbow pattern on the spoon is working but more inconsistent than earlier in summer. Black perch colors have been catching. And, the big streamers on the end of leaded line, down 3-5 colors, are catching fish, even by anglers who are new to “pulling the feather” from the boat.
