Ice Report for Lake Puckaway

There is about 10 inches on the main lake right now. With the extreme cold that is forecasted for this week people are starting to drive out onto the ice with small cars and trucks. I would wait a little bit but this weekend might melt the ice to the point where it is unsafe (highs in the high 30s). It’s your decision but always remember a fish is not worth dying over. Good luck fishing!

Fishing Tips for Lake Puckaway

There is only a thin crust of ice over the lake. The dusting of snow makes the ice look safe but the only people that should go out there are people with death wishes. Pray for real winter to start soon.

Fishing Tips for Puckaway

The walleyes and pike are biting like crazy lately but only if you can find them. Try trolling crank baits near springs, cold water feeder creeks, and the deepest water you can find. Good luck fishing!

The fishing is going good in Puckaway right now with every thing from pike to catfish biting well. The walleyes are being caught almost anywhere but most of them are taken trolling at 1.5-3mph with spoons and crank baits or fishing with slip bobbers in the reeds. The pike are mostly being taken trolling but there are still a few being caught shallow. Troll a little faster than you would for walleyes and us bigger baits. The catfish are also biting well; most of the fish are being caught near shore on dead bait, worms, and artificial catfish bait. Good luck fishing!!

walleyes and pike

The walleyes and pike have been biteing really well the past week or so. Most of the fish are caught on either crank baits or spinners trolled in and around the river, weed beds, and the narrows. Good luck fishing!

The fishing is not good

The fishing has not "gotten good" as I said in my last post. The fishing has been really slow lately with people having to work for every fish they catch. Most of the fish have been caught up the river but you might catch them in small bays with fallen trees. Try using jigs, small crank baits, and live bait. Good luck fishing!

completely open

The lake is completely open now, with water temps in the mid 40s. The fishing should be getting good soon! Good luck fishing.
