Fishing Report for May 25 - June 7, 2014

Between Cedar Lake, the Indian Lake Chain, and our fly-outs up North... this has truly been an incredible spring for fishing. Many of our "regulars" claim this is one of the best years yet. Catching and releasing hundreds of fish daily, and boating a couple of real trophies - this has been one year for the books!

We had about a week of scorching hot weather, which brought our water temperatures up a little. The weather has cooled off now into the 50's and 60's and looks like it will be cool for another week at least. There is lots of rain in the forecast, which will make it interesting with our already very high water levels. On average, the water temperature is below normal. The cooler water is keeping the walleye shallow and active coming off of their spawning beds. The fishing will be good still - just need to bundle up and wear those rain suits!

Smallmouth Caught on the Indian Lake Chain
On Cedar Lake we've had guests catching lots of walleye in the upper twenty inch range. One guest caught a really nice 28" 8-pound walleye last week. Fishing on the chain has been very impressive this year as well. At K.C.'s Landing Resort on Edward Lake there was a 32.5" walleye caught off the dock and a 44.5" muskie caught on a fly rod off the dock. There were multiple 28"+ walleyes caught off the dock as well just this year already.

Filleting Some Nice Walleye At K.C.'s Landing
Here are a few written reports that I have received from some fly-in groups:

Meen Lake May 26 - May 31, 2014

Great hospitality, accommodations, and fishing. All supplies, gas, and equipment worked fine. Fishing was good, but the big fish sure were not biting yet - one more week for that to happen. Caught 650 fish.

Antenna Lake May 25 - June 1, 2014

The cabin was very comfortable. Even thought the temperatures were 80+ degrees, it stayed cool. The windows provided great ventilation. Everything worked great. The shower was wonderful! The fishing - ice had gone out the previous week. Fishing started slow, but each day it improved. We caught a total of 324 fish (201 Walleye and 123 Northern) with 100 fish caught our last day. The service provided by Northern Lights Outposts was excellent. We hope to return. We have been on over 20 outpost fly-in trips. Antenna ranks as one of our best!

Pusher Lake May 29 - June 7, 2014

Walleye fishing was excellent! Caught roughly 2,000 Walleye, 3-4 hundred Pike, Largest Pike was 33" and largest Walleye was 26". Fished points and shoreline. Beautiful lake, great time!!

In general, talking with the groups as they are flying in, it sounds like the fishing has been exceptional. We have almost a full change-over this weekend for the fly-ins, so we are gearing up for a very busy Saturday. I am looking forward to talking to everyone as they get back from their fly-ins. I will try and check back in a week or two as I have more to report!

Here are some groups that left last Saturday:

Good luck on the water, everyone!

Until next time,
