Where Beauty & Nature Intersect

Fishing Report 1-12-22

The key word for this week in the Park Rapids area is “accessibility”

Though the ice is thick enough to support vehicle travel on our lakes, snow and slush are the challenges. Plowed roads are only created by private individuals, so inquire with one of our local bait shops for information on travel. Crappie action has been very good in the area with daytime and nighttime anglers finding active fish. 11-18 feet has been best, though deeper basins have been good on certain lakes. Walleye action remains strong with active fish in 17-24 ft. with shiner minnows remaining the bait of choice. Northern pike have been moving well with anglers and those spearing reporting respectable action. Weedy flats and primary drop offs are the key areas to target. Sunfish activity slowed with the cold temperatures last week but is picking up.
