Price County Area

Muskie action continued its generally slow trend of this season,
with many anglers becoming frustrated with the variable success.
The constantly changing weather seems to have kept the fish on the
move, and no consistent patterns have been found. Some anglers have
reported quite a few follows and sightings, but catches have mostly
been of small fish in the 30- to 36-inch size, with the bigger fish
seeming to be holding off in deeper water yet. Slow topwater baits
and small bucktails have been the favorite lures. Walleye success
also has been erratic. Some days have produced some good catches in
and around mid-depth weedbeds, and others days would find a person
wondering if there’s any fish in the lake! Weedless jigs fished
with a leech or a piece of crawler have been the most productive
baits. Panfish action has been fair. Larger bluegills have been
tough to find, but some decent catches of perch, crappies, and rock
bass have been reported.
