Detroit Lakes Fishing Report
Weekly report of where fish are biting and bait to use
This is the fishing report for Wednesday, May 5, 2021, sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Opening walleye/northern season is only ten days away! Docks are all deployed in both Otter Tail and Becker Counties. Water temps in the Detroit Lakes area warmed over the very warm three day stretch last weekend. Panfish moved shallow and are getting set up for their spawn. With the cool weather now the fish will move in and out with sun and cloud cover and warm or cool days. Look for most fish to be in 4-12 foot of water close to green weeds and some starting emergent weed growth. Small jigs tipped with small minnows or plastic tails fished under bobbers or casted and retrieved will produce.
