We have had anglers all the way from Florida, Texas, and New York this past week and boy did they choose a good time to come to Devils Lake and fish with Woodland Resort and Mitchell’s Guide Service. Walleyes topping 8 lbs, white bass hitting the 3.5 lb mark, and plenty of knuckle busting pike to go around, Devils Lake fishing is as good as it has been all year. Trolling with bottom bouncers and spinners baited with crawlers, leaches or plastics have all been doing really well along with pulling crank baits. There has not been one color that seems to be dominating, but catching them on a lot of different presentations. Fish have seemed to move out a little deeper to around the 15-20 foot mark, with fish being caught both deeper and shallower. The evening bite and shore fishing both continue to produce great results. Look forward to the same types of fishing throughout August with very similar success.
Looking forward to August we still have quite a few openings for both fishing with Mitchell’s Guide Service and lodging with Woodland Resort. Great fishing/lodging packages available for August include 9th-11th,17th-20th, 23rd-27th and August 29th-September 8th. For reservations call Woodland resort at 701-662-5996 Ext. 1 or Mitchell’s Guide Service at 701-662-6560.
