The rivers are low and cold for sure. My daughter caught this Souix river brown yesterday. The steelhead have been few and far between. Hopefully we will get some of this rain tonight and get the flow going.

~ Fishing guides Roger LaPenter and Luke Kavajecz from Anglers All, 715/682-5754 (http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com), report the following:
This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. We find ourselves between fishing seasons at the moment as the remaining ice on the bay is no longer safe, but yet there is still too much of it for any open water action.
The ice has gone out at Saxon Harbor and anglers are already trolling from there. In the wake of the state’s early-season steelhead opener on the Brule River from U.S. Highway 2 to Lake Superior on March 28, steelhead are now being caught in the local rivers.
“After a crazy high-water spring season last year, 2015 is shaping up to be quite the opposite,” said Luke Kavajecz of Anglers All in Ashland, “but the rivers should be fishing good through April. Low and slow is the name of the game early in the steelhead run.”
Luke said all of the fish currently in the Brule will be holdovers from last fall. The best way to get at them is to fish smaller flies (stones, prince nymphs, x-legs and, of course, egg patterns) under an indicator in the slow holes and bends.
For the most complete and up-to-date fishing report, just give them a call at Anglers All and they will gladly keep you informed!

~ Fishing guides Roger LaPenter and Luke Kavajecz from Anglers All, 715/682-5754 (http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com), report the following:
This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. Ice fishing is pretty much over with and the recent warm weather spell with temperatures up in the 50s has many anglers thinking about getting that boat ready.
“The ice is getting sketchy out there – best to call the shop and see what's happening day to day,” cautioned Luke Kavajecz of Anglers All in Ashland. “Most people are calling it a season. However, from the recent reports of smelt fishing through the ice, it looks like we should be in for a good smelt run this spring, so we've got that to look forward to.”
The state’s early-season steelhead opener on the Brule River from U.S. Highway 2 to Lake Superior will be this Saturday, March 28. There definitely will be fish to be caught on opening day, but there also will be plenty of people along the river.
“It's a good way to get your first open-water fix of the year, so everybody seems to make the Brule opener a tradition of sorts,” Luke explained.
“After a crazy high-water spring season last year, 2015 is shaping up to be quite the opposite, but the rivers should be fishing good through April,” he added. “Low and slow is the name of the game early in the steelhead run.”
Luke said all of the fish currently in the Brule will be holdovers from last fall. The best way to get at them is to fish smaller flies (stones, prince nymphs, x-legs and, of course, egg patterns) under an indicator in the slow holes and bends.
“The fish are pretty lethargic right now, but they're hungry,” he added. “Good luck if you head out this weekend!”

FISHING REPORT
3/22/15 6:13 AM CST
Ice Depth: 26"
Small group of us were out near the Light House yesterday and there was 26 inches of ice. Bottom 20 inches or so was real soft. We drove out on ATV's at the Orr Dock landing off Prentice Road. There was a large group of ATV's out past the ice heave and they drove on at Washburn. It is supposed to be cold all week, but I don't think I'll be going out there any more. It's not worth it.

So will we still be able to get on the ice yet on the 28th of march, or has it pulled away from shore pretty good already? Thank's DB

~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter and wife Carolyn Swartz from Anglers All, 715/682-5754 (http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com), report the following:
This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. Although it is definitely getting toward the end of the ice fishing season, people are still traveling out on the bay from certain landings and catching fish. ATVs are the recommended form of travel at this point and flotation devices are a must.
As always, conditions can change rapidly on Lake Superior. For your own safety and especially if you are unfamiliar with the area you will be fishing, hire a local guide or check with a bait shop prior to venturing out on any ice.
“They are traveling at their own risk out there and should bring an ice bar and check their way as they go,” advised Carolyn Swartz, co-owner of Anglers All.
She said anglers have been catching whitefish out by the lighthouse and finding perch and walleye near Second Landing.
“There are a lot of smelt out in the bay so we are looking forward to a great smelt season,” Carolyn added.
For the most complete and up-to-date fishing report, just give them a call at Anglers All and they will gladly keep you informed!

I fished Saturday out from Bayview park, bono creek and Ashland coal dock, bombed out. I spent most of Sunday near the lighthouse, got two keeper perch, one herring and thirty smelt. It's always a treat fishing this water.

Went out off Bodin's yesterday. Getting on and off the ice was a little tricky. Fished mainly in 50 ft of water. Caught 1 Coho and 4 Whitefish. Ice turned pretty black during the day. Guess it's time to get the boat ready......
