Spring fishing is in high gear, with the walleye, lake trout, smallmouth bass and northern seasons open. The first day of the season featured a 30 1/2 inch walleye weighing in at 12# (caught and released). The lake trout are in shallow water and fairly easy to catch by trolling along the rocky shores of the lake. The smallmouth bass are still a few weeks away from their spring spawning, but the big ones are waiting for you when you cast around the tailings of some of the rapids.
Remember, our staff will fillet all your fish for you, and if you wish, our kitchen will prepare them for your dinner.
We have several nice fishing packages coming up in the next few weeks if you have the itch to get away for a few days.
The migrating birds are coming through and they seem to be emptying the feeders on a daily basis. Several pairs of loons are nesting on the lake again this year and our resident bald eagles have returned.
Our nearby Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center will be opening on May 22. They have fascinating exhibits, videos, and hiking trails. It is a WOW of a museum and definately worth a visit.
