LAKE-LINK get together on Friday the 30th from ?-? behind the city shops.

Ill be there around 10am, show up whenever you want.

look at my pic below to see what i look like so you can find me, also ill be wearing a black EC express hat on.

post if you are planning on coming to see how alls coming!

a few ppl as asked me how to get there so here are some bad directions but i hope they help some....

go down birch street until it turns into madison st downtown. on your right there is a street called forest st, the street right before the bridge. go down forest street and there is a field on your left, when the field/park ends you will see a big red brick building. park in the lot thats right at the end of the field. walk along the weed line on the "trail" until it ends then walk down to the river. This may be confusing but it makes sense if you see it.

if this doesnt make sense read in the forum and there are some diffrent directions

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.

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.
