Berlin Lake Area Fishing Report

Berlin Lake Area Fishing Report:

Happy first weekend in June! Unfortunately, the weather has not been very June-like, so fishing has not been typical of this time of year. Much like last week, there isn’t a whole lot to report, but here is what we have heard:

The water level at Berlin is just about at normal level, sitting at -0.15 feet below normal for this time of year. The recent rain over the past couple of days should bring that back up. The water temp is 61.70°, with a buoy temp 1 foot below the surface of 67.24°. With the coming warmer weather, temps should be on the rise.

Walleye fishing is doing well in the willows being caught on fireball jigs and whistler jigs tipped with nightcrawlers. Make sure you stop in this weekend before heading out, for your crawlers.

If you’re looking to catch Smallmouth Bass, head over to 224 and use swimbaits in about 14’ of water.

Crappie fishing is done best in shallow water near structures using maggots, wax worms and small minnows. We will be stocked with bait and hoping for great weather.

We have heard reports of Catfish being caught at Westbranch on medium minnows and shrimp.

Better weather should bring better fishing. If you’re out on the water this weekend, send us your reports and images to and we will feature you in next weeks report!
