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.

Been getting a few bluegills and smallmouth below the Altoona dam on jig and crawler but the bite has been nothing to write home about. Fish have been decent size though. Have seen a few nice muskies surface in the evening.

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?

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!

The only thing I would count on below the dam is big sturgeon, big flathead and big smallmouth. Maybe some perch and shiners but that's all I've caught or seen down there.

Floated the Eau Claire the Memorial Landing down to Eau Claire lake. Had 6 muskie on, boated 3. Largest about 35 inches. Great fun on light tackle from the kayaks. Caught about 9 smallies on our big baits. Surprised at how few holes, wood, and other structure there is up there. Most of the river bed is flat sand with about 5 rocky sections. Needed about 2 more inches of river to float without rubbing bottom. Caught nothing below the G bridge or the lake except a couple small largemouth bass in the backwater swamps.
