I stumbled across this thread a couple of days ago. I wish I would have had this resource when I lived in Eau Claire. I haven't been back to EC in a couple years, but I always had great luck fishing muskie in the rivers.

There is definitely a fishable population. I would recommend trying the Eau Claire river. I always had better luck there. Anywhere from the Altoona dam down river to the Eau Claire Country Club has produced for me at some point. I have seen several very good size fish in this stretch as well. Don't pass up the maiden Rock area. Just upstream, and downstream, is a great hole.

My best results usually came from throwing deep diving cranks (like a depthraider) and retrieving it ULTRA slow. Find the deeper holes where this is possible and you will find fish.

Hopefully I'll see you up there again soon.

the DNR shocked the river around campus and got a big muskie i guess. so there is a big one swimming. otherwise i have no clue how to fish for muskie but i am going to try tom. i haven't decided where though.

hey guys

I ve been a musky fisherman for a long time now and i know the chippewa river is one of the better ones in the state if your looking for river muskies. the only problem is i ve never actually tried it. My question is, is there a fishable population of muskies in the chippewa around the eau claire stretch. if so, where are some areas that might hold fish, what depth, what might you use. any information would help tremendously. Even if you have never yourself fished them, if you have seen a couple guys throwing for muskies just let me know.

thanks a lot guys and good luck out there.

went out a while today...skunked with 3 poles out :(

it was pretty windy so it was very annoying to fish...because my pole was always bobbing so it was hard to tell if it was the wind or a fish

any tips on this problem?

i got a nice 39.5 inch sturgon on the chippewa on saturday. the thing fought for a half hour. otherwise got a few more freshwater drum. all on nightcrawlers.

make sure the crawlers are not on the bottom. I use a three way swivel to prevent it otherwise they get taked off in the weeds.

Thinking of heading out wednesday maybe to get me a muskie...or prob not.

I got that fishing itch again
