Scenic Beauty, Trophy Walleyes, Grouse, Ducks, Deer and Bear – Fall At Lake Winnie

brent with fishFall fishing can be outstanding for those who make the journey. The Chippewa National Forest comes alive with breathtaking color. Fall is a special time to reflect on past fishing trips and family vacations, while still enjoying beautiful weather, plentiful activities and great fishing.

Enjoy a round of golf, hiking, biking or walking though the area’s majestic fall colors. Take a canoe or kayak expedition along the shoreline and enjoy a beautiful sunset spanning across the lake. Feel the warmth of a campfire and enjoy the company of good friends and family.

Fall walleye fishing on Lake Winnie is very similar to spring patterns. Look to shallow water shoreline flats with gravel and weeds and rock. Walleyes are looking to feed on baitfish to bulk up for the upcoming winter. Depending on the wind, walleyes can be anywhere from 4 – 12 feet. Pitching jigs and minnows can be lethal. Jumbo perch will often be caught in the same areas as walleye. Fall also provides an opportunity to catch trophy pike. Like other fish species, they are cruising the flats searching for an easy meal. Pike can be taken casting crankbaits, spinner baits and bucktails.
