Devils Lake Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

A couple buddies and I are heading out to Devils Lake this coming weekend and I was wondering if anyone had any good reports for Perch and Walleye? I have never fished Devils Lake before so was wondering if anyone had any advice.

Hi Busse, it is better to check in the forum for this specific lake, rather than the general ice fishing thread. they will be able to help you in there. Good luck on your trip!

Are you pulling up a wheel house or staying some where and running around with portables? If you are bringing up a wheel house I suggest bringing a portable as well.

Well my advice on perch is don't setup the house until u catch or at least mark fish. Perch are mostly deep, 40 to 50 plus ft.

Alright thank you for the advice! Are there parts of the lake that are typically better fishing for perch than others? Or what parts of the lake would you recommend?

Just wanted to give an update on my fishing at Devils lake this past weekend. It was a pretty cold weekend but the fish were biting! Our first day fishing we did more scouting and moved around on Black Tiger quite a bit but still caught a decent amount of perch and a couple eyes. Saturday was hot and ended up getting our four person limit in perch and also in walleyes. Saturday evening the walleyes were very aggressive and we caught around 30 eyes in about 2 hours so it was an awesome time. Had a great weekend fishing Devils lake for the first time and plan on going back in two weeks!

Traveling is is fine with 4x4. Go around the big drifts snow is hard and you can stay on top of the snow.

Yeah we had a Suburban pulling a trailer and we had no problem. There isn't to much snow on the lake and what little drifts there are they were really hard.

Travel is a little tougher in some areas of the lake now, but you can still get around ok with a truck just pay attention to the bigger drifts.

The fishing Saturday was pretty terrible. The fish were there, but very negative. We got a few eyes in the morning and then went out looking for perch. We found perch, but most fish that came in were extremely negative. They wouldn't separate more than a couple inches from the bottom. A few came in and would smack spoons with either minnow heads or spikes. We also got a few on small tungsten jigs with spikes and a few with small jigs and the smallest minnows we could find.

It didn't seem to matter where we went. I had a friend fishing the towers area and 6 mile. We tried Black Tiger, East Devils, and Stump.

3 of us just got back from a 4 day trip to Devils and had a blast. We caught well over 100 perch in the time we were there. Best depth was 40-45 fow for us. Fished the same spot all 4 days and the fish were there every day. Had to do a lot of hole hopping, but once you found the active ones they were very easy to catch as they would meet your bait 3 to 4 feet off the bottom when dropping it. Hali's worked best for us by far, but we also caught fish on buckshots, tingler spoons, and slender spoons.

    • Everything seems to be OK here.
    • I ordered a Somerset  grape vine last spring. Mainly because it is the only seedless grape that is supposed to be hardy enough to grow here. I took it off the wire and laid it down and covered it up with dirt to keep it from winter killing. It came through fine. Just put it back on the trellis yesterday.
