Irene Lake is one of those few lakes where when walleye is slow (and yes it happens on every lake) you can switch modes and fish trout. Or you can cast for northern pike, or you can tackle some hungry small mouth bass.
Last weekend saw slower than normal walleye action, but then again effort is directly proportional to results -right guys. But the trout were absolutely veracious. Many think that summer trout fishing difficult but fishing Irene Lake for lake trout is rather fun and definitely successful. And fresh trout taste great!
