Lake Mille Lacs is known for its gorgeous views, fantastic lake activities, and fishing, and it just gets better during the fall season. Combine two of many Minnesotans’ pastimes into one by setting out on the boat for phenomenal fishing and taking in the fall colors at the same time. The lake is surrounded by hundreds of acres of some of the most beautiful wooded areas that turn into dazzling scenes of gold, crimson, and orange. Everywhere you look seems to be a scene straight out of a postcard. The days are also cooler in the area, so fish are active longer and can be found in shallower areas. Everything about fall on Lake Mille Lacs creates the perfect recipe for hitting the water. 

Minnesota Fishing Season

Minnesota fishing resortsOne of the greatest aspects of choosing the fall Minnesota fishing season is the abundance of fish that also love the weather changes. Much like spring, fall is a fantastic time of year to hit the water and drop a line. Cooler temperatures create conditions that allow fish to frequent shallower waters and they tend to bite later into the day and earlier into the afternoons. During the summer months, anglers may spend a good portion of their day looking for drop-offs and deeper portions to sink their lines. However, fall brings a wider variety of areas where you can find walleye hanging out. 

Rather than looking for 20-25 foot depths, you can keep your hooks closer to the 12-15 foot range. MN walleye season is a fan favorite during the fall months for their activity in the water. Catch and release as much as you want and check in on the MN walleye limit before you head out to see what you can bring home. Walleyes tend to hang out on rock piles and in weed lines during the fall. There is also a plethora of other fish that you can find during the fall season.
