Walleye action has been best in the Prescott area of the St. Croix River or in 20 to 25 feet on Bald Eagle Lake. Pike are hitting sucker minnows in 10 to 12 feet on lakes Elmo, Big Carnelian, and Beaver. There’s plenty of white bass to be had from the St. Croix right in town and largemouth bass are an easy catch at Demontreville Lake, Lake Jane, Lake Owasso, and Lake Phalen. Crappies remain active in 4 to 8 feet on Demontreville, Big Carnelian, and Big Marine Lake and sunfish are in less than 4 feet on most lakes.

Sunfish are being caught along the shorelines of Steiger Lake, Lake Zumbra, and Lake Auburn. Look to Lake Bavaria and Whaletail Lake for crappies in 3 to 5 feet and bass fishing remains strong on Whaletail and Steiger in shallow water. The Minnesota River started giving up flathead catfish on sucker minnows and bullheads. The weedlines on Pierson Lake, Auburn, and Steiger are producing northern pike.
