From North Dakota Tourism. “The North Dakota Game and Fish Department echoes what anglers are seeing on Devils Lake. Perch numbers are solid and the winter of 2014 should easily be one of the best winters for perch that we have seen in more than fifteen years.The stars are lining up with good ice, a great population of fish over twelve inches and numbers of fish. Besides perch numbers that are getting attention, the lake still remains one of the best walleye fisheries in the Midwest.” Read more…

[Fishing Reports]  

1/31/14. The bite continues to be good! It’s all about finding that window and/or flurry during the day. Our best walleye action has been in 8 to 14 feet of water. We have caught walleyes all day but the bite is best just before dark (3-5pm). Buckshots with the minnow head have been the best, but we also have had luck with more subtle presentations. Perch fishing has been fairly consistent. The key is to find the active school. There are days they need a bit of coaxing and other days they really go! The size and quality of the perch is very special right now on Devils Lake; we have had many over 13 inches. Buckshots, Hali’s, and dropper rigs tipped with a minnow head or waxies have been the best. Ice is thick and there are areas where extensions are needed. Trucks can still get around, but some areas are tricky. Good luck to all!! –Bry’s Guide Service
