It’s a shame lake Darling closed September 30th. Went again on Saturday and other than being a little chilly, the fishing was great! We caught our limit of walleye before noon pulling spinners/BBs and crawlers as bait. Now for the bonus...I hadn’t caught any decent perch there since 2009 and we caught 12. We threw 2 back and kept 10. The two biggest were 13” and 14”. Can’t wait for iceName:  18E69E21-C654-4EF0-9B1C-EE2EAA48303A.jpg

    Reminds me of a friend from Minot who doesn't fish a ton but has a boat - had a nice day in October so he decided to run up to Darling and thought it was weird there was no one out there. Found out later about the closure

    It's a National Wildlife Refuge with the express mission of supporting waterfowl. So it closes during the migrations in order to provide refuge for weary travelers.

    Be nice if they would even consider allowing non-motorized watercraft access until say 1 November...
