Latest fishing report

Trout fishing should improve with this week's cooler weather. Wiper fishing is steady, but slowing because of the cooler overnight temperatures. Remember: you must release any tiger muskies smaller than 40 inches. Please use good catch-and-release techniques. (Last update 10-17-18)
