Mid Week Devils Lake Fishing Report-June 8th, 2022

Written by Mike Peluso

Devils lake is definitely in transition. Some of which is contributed to a late spring so the water temps are still low, some of the transition is a massive bug/food hatch and when you catch a fish, it’s fat!

So what’s working? Well, whatever you want to use honestly. The fish are kind of everywhere and when conditions are good, the fish will bite! If the weather is tough (cold/windy) the fishing can be difficult. Mother Nature can and has been a bi#%h.

All that set aside, the fishing on Devils Lake has been really good! Spinners are just starting, bobbers, cranks, and jigs and plastics are crushing it. Just fish the way you love to fish and find the right water conditions and you will do well!

I have a few more days up here on Devils Lake before I head to Lake Sakakawea. I love this time of year, because it’s all new and fresh for me. I’m super excited to get to Sakakawea, but definitely going to enjoy Devils Lake here for a bit.

I have opening for both lakes in August if you are looking to fish. Please get ahold of me if you are looking to fish.
