End of June fishing report for Red Lake & Parker Lake

The end of June is already upon us and we saw several more nice fish caught and released this week.

We had a wild mix of weather this week which illustrates the need to pack for all situations.  A cool, overcast day with intermittent rain showers and 30 mph winds was followed up by a sunny and calm day in the mid 80s.

This can be illustrated by these two pictures of Louie – both taken on the same day!

The windy days produced better fishing and we were flooded with excellent reports from both Red Lake and Parker Lake.

Coby took the top spot on the catch and release board with this hefty 44″ fish caught within the first hour of the trip.

Guests still reported catching walleye anywhere from 6′ – 13′ deep.  Lindy rigs with night crawlers and leeches as well as jigs and crankbaits worked well.  If you’re wondering what lindy rigs are, you can read our post on how to make them here http://eaglefallslodge.blogspot.ca/2011/03/tie-your-own-lindy-rigs.html.  If you’re coming to see us this summer we’d also be happy to show you how to tie them at the lodge.

We had a group up this week, some of which had been to Black Bear Lodge when the Rundles were operating that camp before opening Eagle Falls Lodge.  They had some neat stories about camping by Parker Lake before the guest cabins were built.

They made the trip up this year with their sons and had a great week!

Trevor and his brother, Cameron, made nice contributions to the weekly fish fry…

…and learned how to clean their own fish!

I have to hand it to these guys, they planned to do a shore lunch and the non-stop rain didn’t stop them!

Here is TJ with a fat 24″ walleye the released back into Red Lake

 He also caught this 38″ northern on Red Lake
Way to go guys!
