I haven't seen any recent fishing reports lately. Has anybody been fishing in the BWCA in the past 8 weeks? If you have any reports please add them to the thread at the top of the page. Would love to hear them! Thanks for sharing!

Fishing has been poor. I think all the fish are wearing masks to keep from getting Covid.

Here's the most recent fishing report from Arrowhead Outdoors in Ely. If you aren't following these folks on Facebook, you should be. They post an area fishing report about once a week during the busy season:

"Walleye - Walleye anglers are continuing to find active walleyes in 4-6 feet of water, working weedlines. Leeches, fished under a bobber, has been the best way to catch walleyes up here. Anglers have also been reporting a excellent deep water trolling bite, during the evening hours on many of the area lakes. Here anglers are trolling deep diving crankbaits over 30+ feet of water, behind leadcore or planner boards. Anglers trolling, have been catching quality eyes!

Bass - Both smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing has been excellent on area lakes. Both have been aggressively hitting topwater early in the morning. Largemouth are being found in shallow weedbeds, wild rice beds, lilly pads or downed trees. Weedless, floating frogs have been the go to baits in these locations. Smallmouth Bass have been located on shallow boulder flats, around islands and sunken islands. For smallmouth bass whopper ploppers, torpedoes, and pop-r’s have been very hard to beat during the early morning topwater bite. As the sun gets up both bass switch over to spinnerbaits and soft plastics.

Panfish - Sunfish anglers have been reporting a excellent bite on area lakes. Small leeches fished under a bobber, inside weedbeds or around downed trees has been very effective. Crappie anglers have been reporting a excellent bite inside cabbage beds during the evening hours. Anglers have been catching crappies with minnows under a bobber or jig and twisters, fished close to thick stands of cabbage."
