Berlin Lake Area Fishing Report:
It’s officially summer and the fishing has been excellent and exactly as it should be in the summertime. The water level at Berlin is sitting just below normal at -0.67 feet below the usual end of June level. The water temperature is 69.26°, and the buoy temperature at 1 foot below the surface is 76.11°.
We have had quite a few reports of catching limits of walleye in the northern end of Berlin Lake, with the majority of fish measuring at 15-18”. The popular bait has been Berkley Flicker Shads and Flicker Minnows while trolling.
Catfishing has also been excellent. Popular bait has been frozen shrimp and cut shad. To optimize your luck, the best catfishing has been at Walborn and Berlin while fishing from the bank.
Continuing with the theme of excellent fishing, crappie have also been caught in abundance near the 224 bridge at night, as well as near the Price Street bridge near the airport, located in the southwest corner of Berlin. The popular bait for crappie has been Panfish Assassins and Twister Tails.
Thanks to Brian for sending in the picture of the 4# walleye! It was caught trolling flicker shads in area 1 of the lake.
