FISHING REPORT FOR PRICE COUNTY
Angler fishing success has had it's ups and downs just like the weather ever since openning day. We have experienced very few days with an air temperature pushing 70 degrees. Many of our days have been in the 50's with buckets of rain and a few snow storms to boot. This has caused many of our rivers to swell beyond thier banks.
Even though the weather has been bad the walleye bite has been ok. Dusk and dawn have been the best time but because of the cloudy water conditions the day bite has it's moments. Most of the walleyes have been the smaller eating size males. Many are coming from deeper water. Jig and minnow combos and plastics were getting bit.
Smallmouths were starting to move on beds but the dropping water temperatures have forced them down in 6-10 ft of water on gravel flats. Try some xraps to get them to bite. If the weekend turns sunny and warm smallmouth action should really heat up.
Northern pike action has been pretty good. Many decent size pike have stayed shallow since water temperatures have remained low. Spinner baits or large sucker minnows and bobbers near new weed growth is a good place to start.
Muskies are done spawning and the season openner is this weekend. If you are lucky enough to put one in the basket handle these fish with care and practice catch and release.
Remember to give every boater some space as this being a holiday weekend boater traffic may increase especially if the sun is out. Who won't be out enjoying the outdoors after this winter.
Good Luck Fishing!!
