Fishing in the Park Rapids has improved over the past week with consistent, warmer weather. With only a couple weekends remaining for the gamefish season, anglers hoping for walleye or northern pike need to act fast. Walleye have been most active out in the mud. The depth of those soft bottomed areas varies from lake to lake, but generally speaking, 25-35ft of water. Northern pike populations have been split up due to forage availability. Some pike are in shallow vegetation to feed on small panfish and perch, while others are roaming in deep water as they pursue suspended crappies and tullibee. Crappies have been most active over deep water basin areas. Sunfish have always been roaming those locales, that vegetation in less than 15 feet holds bluegills all winter long.
