2017 - Anglers will find good numbers of quality (15.0 – 19.9 inches) size fish common in the catch at Tuttle Lake. Walleye fishing on the lake can can be very good at times with anglers catching limits using lures trolled with planer boards. Excellent numbers of yellow perch approaching 9.0” is common in the lake with anglers also noticing the numbers of small fish in the catch which will sustain the fishery for the next few years. The crappie population of Tuttle Lake reflect a healthy population in the lake. Excellent numbers of angler acceptable sized and larger crappie currently exists in Tuttle Lake. With the numbers of small fish present in the lake will no doubt provide continued recruitment to the fishery in future years. The self-sustaining channel catfish population in Tuttle Lake will be attractive to the serious “cat” angler as large fish will provide plenty of pole bending action for years to come.
