Foster_270: Waukau creek is a good place. Eureka dam is alright but you have to deal with the jackwagons who don't like to share the river.

I have some property on the chippewa in that same area. Have caught many redhorse on a 3 way rig with a lindy rig attached even well into summer. Have a fire down on the bank and listen for the bells all night, good times. That area of the river is chock full of big redhorse (and channel cats) it seems. Thanks for the report need to get up there soon.

Trying to find some good size redhorse or white suckers on the willow or apple rivers if anyone has any advice on where to go it'd be appreciated.

I recently bought a house on the Chippewa river above the Holcombe flowage. The redhorse have been running. Not real strong.. but there there... I have been trying a new technique. Lindy rig with two hooks. Spaced a couple feet apart. So far I have had two doubles on one line. Pretty neat. Never done that before. Been catching them for 7 days straight. My count is approximately 46. Only two were big pigs. As in pushing 10 pounds.

Fished Turtle Creek near Darien yesterday afternoon, could see a few suckers in the current but couldn't get any to commit. What a beautiful day to give it a whirl tho. Tight lines to all

Sorry, that is true. You can catch them by hand and keep them.  I guess I should have included that.

I did get out on tuesday morning, there is stretches of the willow that are not considered trout waters near new richmond. No luck, I will try again when it warms up a bit.

One minor claification - picky I know...  But you can indeed keep suckers year-round from a trout stream if they are obtained by hand.

As a kid I would always catch Suckers near my home near Cottage Grove. My best spot was Little Door Creek, North of Hwy. 12 & 18 and East of Cty. N. My Dad would always say that "When the Maple buds were the size of a squirrels ear the suckers will be running". That pretty much has held true in my experience.
