Minnesota Fishing Report: Updated June 28


West Metro — Look for sunfish in the shallows of Lake Parley and Lake Bavaria. Northern pike are hitting sucker minnows on the weedlines of Pierson Lake and Lake Minnewashta. Look to Steiger Lake and Lake Zumbra for bass in eight to 12 feet and walleye action remains slow.

Lake Waconia —Muskie and northern pike action has picked up in 12 to 15 feet along the reef edges and shoreline breaks with bucktails or crankbaits. Sunfish continue to be found shallow on the north side of the island and bass are active and scattered at a variety of depths. Walleyes are hitting leeches during the evening hours in the 16- to 20-foot hole between the marinas.

    Lake Tetonka is producing a few walleyes in 15 to 20 feet. The weedlines of Lake Washington and the shorelines of Lake Hanska give up an occasional walleye during low-light periods. Madison Lake and the points on Washington are holding panfish in shallow water and Little Jefferson Lake remains a safe bet for northern pike.
