We can measure fishing success many ways. In my opinion you can never have a bad day of fishing even if catching is slow. But if catching is good, fishing is then fantastic!
Irene Lake has produced many happy anglers with a variety of species. Small mouth bass and lake trout are the two most common species with northern pike being sought after too. Walleye can be a little tricky on Irene Lake but very rewarding when caught.
Opening weekend for walleye only produced a few eaters but the bass and trout made for some great action on Irene Lake.
The guys told me the trout were everywhere and very aggressive. Their only walleye were caught just at dark.
