Fishing with Slippery Winds Wilderness Lodge
Yoke Lake is big and as such it offers good fishing for trophy fish. You can expect to find pockets of Largemouth Bass here, along the rocky points you will likely find big Smallmouth Bass, too. The Walleye are all over the lake, and the big ones tend to hang out near the weedy beds in late summer and in the shallows in the cooler parts of the season. For big Northern Pike and Muskie, you will need to find the thickest weed beds which offer shelter from big birds of prey, and plenty of food in small and medium sized fish.
Overall, you cannot go wrong where. There is plenty of fish and plenty of big fish.
