FISHING REPORT
12/17/14 11:29 AM CST
Pretty much all the community spots I checked out over the last couple days held good ice- with the exception of Black RIver Beach. Where there was once 50 guys standing is now open water.

This cold snap will fix a lot that was lost in no time.

I'm getting photos of people's cars in the water from across the ice belt, so I wonder- just for fun, how long it would be before Lake Onalaska claims her first for the 2014/2015 ice season. I'm already seeing ATVs making their way towards the lights.

FISHING REPORT

Ice Depth: 5" Conditions: Cloudy
Was out by the airport this morning. Ice is 5 inches. Perch were caught on minnows in shallower areas but few keepers. Mostly small fish.

I'd be hesitant to try in areas where there is current until this coming weekend. Those kinds of areas lost about two inches of ice during the warm temps. River water levels have also risen.

I'm from SE WI and have a fishing trip tentatively planned for this weekend depending on ice conditions. With this warm weather the last few days I would hate to drive all the way up just to find out accessing area lakes isn't possible. Any information on conditions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Osprey - that's great! Beautiful pike! Fantastic to take the young ones fishin and have friendly folks around! Haven't made it down to Lake Ona yet, but planning to one of these weekends. (Finally) had luck this weekend with finding walleyes on Arbutus up in BRF area. This low pressure system sure had the fish pretty lethargic this weekend.

Hope y'all are doing well! I just love hard water season...nothing better!

Late report. . .Fished on Saturday morning with my four year old. Had to hole hop to find the fish, but was able to get enough to feed the family. Lost the largest perch I have ever seen at the hole in front of the landing, but made up for it later by catching a nice northern on the jig pole! Thanks to the guys who came over with the gaff and for giving my little guy a new fishing rod!

I was in about 15ft of water and was catching them at about 1-2 ft off the bottom with minnows. When jigging I would try from about 5ft below surface all the way down. But most luck was deeper

Went back off fishermans road again today. Fished from noon till dark. Pretty slow day. Marked lots of fish but they were not all hungry. Caught maybe 10 small ones and 2 keeper 10" crappies all day. Zero flags on shiners.

Plastic 5.. I was out on fishermans road yesterday, as far up as you can go on the road. There was about 5 in of ice or more. Someone had a 4-wheeler out too. As for fish, did a lot of drilling but eventually found a good spot. Came home with 5 nice blue gill and 8 nice crappie. Had to sort through some smaller ones.

Hi all. I am bringing my dad and brothers up to Lake Onalaska in late September and we have never been before. I have been doing some research but would like some opinions from the folks on this board. I know things will probably be a bit slower for all species, but I am wondering what you guys would say our best bet would be for this time of year to just catch some fish and have fun. We are catch and release all the way. We love bass/pike fishing but also enjoy panfishing and catfishing. I'm planning on bringing gear for all types, but i figured i would try to get some info from the ones who know the place the best. Thanks!

Hammysammy, A big Musky was caught just below the Dresbach dam last fall. Im sure a few stragglers make their way into the river every now and then.

Hammsammy, there is quite a muskie population in the Black River, upstream of the bottoms. I know people that fish for muskies near Melrose to Black River Falls. With high water events, I would imagine that it is possible that muskies of course end up in the Miss, whether or not they are in the Lake or anywhere else for that matter, its anyones guess.
