Primary Species of Fish
Fishing is excellent for a number of species. Walleye, perch, northern pike, and white bass are caught in Devils Lake. Being a relatively shallow lake with excellent populations of forage, large fish are produced quickly in Devils Lake. Many pike over 10 pounds are caught every year. Walleye in the 6 to 8 pound class are common as well as some jumbo yellow perch. Most people target the pike, perch and walleye, but don’t forget about the white bass. There are lots of them and many white bass are caught over 3 pounds here. Devils Lake gives anglers a great place to getaway as well as an opportunity to land the fish of a lifetime.
