July 4- Fishing in the Northwest Angle area has been awesome! In Canadian waters, the reefs have been kicking out walleye in most areas with a lot of 20 inch plus fish being caught. Depths from 10 to 30 feet have been the most productive. The mayfly hatch is definitely on, but it hasn’t seemed to slow the bite down. Big pike are still showing up in with the walleyes, and musky anglers are still reporting good action. The weedgrowth has really come along in the last week, which has really helped the musky and pike angling in some areas. Smallmouth bass continue to be active on the bouldery shoreline areas.
The Minnesota side has been active as well, with lots of fish being caught. Most area are holding fish, but look to the Little Oak area, Starren Shoals, and the reefs south of Oak I. for the best action.
