I've been catching a lot more smallmouth in the past week right by campus just below Owen Park. The seem to be schooled up because you catch 2 or 3 in a row then it goes dead for a while. Most of the come on BPS poppers or 3.8" Keitechs. Almost all smallmouth have been coming on the Smallmouth Magic color which is a Green top and white bottom. Also not much size to the bass all around 10-12" with the rare 15" thrown in. Send me a message if anyone wants to head out sometime as I go to UWEC and am new to the area.
Chippewa/ Eau Claire River, Eau Claire County
Any chance of getting a drift boat on the Eau Claire river below the Altoona dam? Is there a boat launch? I can carry/drag the boat 10-20 yards if I have to. Trying to get on skinny water where regular boats can't go.
Any other stretch that might be possible?

Fished the Eau Claire river from the Altoona dam too highway 53 bridge and caught 1 northern 28".Have thrown alot of casts this year on the river and caught 1 36" muskie.Not like it use to be! Anybody having any luck with the Muskie on the Eau Claire River this year?
Hey everyone, i was wondering about the regulations for musky on these waters. Id really like to do the float from chippewa to dells pond as its my only option for musky without driving 90+ miles before the 27th of may. I was told on the Red Cedar in Dunn County you couldnt fish for musky til later and thats an open season water year round. Wondering if the same applies to the eau claire and chippewa rivers. Thanks!
