Where Beauty & Nature Intersect

Fishing Report: 1-11-2022

Fishing in the Park Rapids has been good overall with travels conditions improving.

Though plowed roads are still easiest, some lakes have solidified to where anglers can travel, even towing a wheel-house, practically anywhere. Yet slushy conditions still exist and can be cumbersome on a number of lakes.

Walleye anglers are experiencing moderate action, but with the gamefish season closing soon, now is the time to take advantage of the existing opportunities. Depths from 22-30 ft have been best.

Panfish anglers have been doing very well, especially those chasing crappies. Basin fish have been the most consistent in depths from 18-28ft.
Anglers after northern pike continue to experience awesome catches. Weed flats and deep water drop offs thick with tullibee are very good right now. One angler landed a 36” silver pike, a unique subspecies native to the Park Rapids area.

Remember, the gamefish season runs through February 27, 2022. Also, current MN fishing licenses expire on February 28, 2022.
