Fishing Report – 6/20/2024 – Park Rapids Lakes Area!

With over 30 years of experience fishing in the Park Rapids lakes area, Jason Durham, a local fishing guide, shares his love for fishing and experience with us in his weekly fishing reports!

Due to this week’s significant rainfall, water levels on area lakes have increased. It’s important to know how unstable weather and a rise in water levels may affect your favorite pastime. He encourages using caution with some area docks being underwater, suggests bringing several layers of clothing to be prepared for a sudden shift in the weather, and more!

What parts of the lakes are your favorite fish biting? What type of bait is working best? What’s the average water temp? Learn that and more in this week’s report.
