FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 11° - 15° F
~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter and wife Carolyn from Anglers All, 715/682-5754 (http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com), report the following:

This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. After getting hit with some serious snow over the past week and a half and with those frigid temps and biting winds, it's officially safe to say that we're done with the open-water fishing season this year.

“It's always a bummer to put the boats away for the year,” said Luke Kavajecz, fishing guide with Anglers All, “but it also signals the start of new seasons and adventures.”

Here is an excerpt from Luke’s season wrap-up on the Anglers All website in which he provides a nice overview of the past six months or so of fishing in the Ashland area:

Once again, it was a great year of fishing out on the big lake. We had another late ice-out and some pretty chilly early-season conditions that included dodging icebergs on the way to the fishing grounds. The water level of Lake Superior was above average and the water stayed cooler for much longer than normal. The fish didn't really seem to mind all that much.

Smallmouth fishing was great and the fish stayed shallow into midsummer. We had some really great days of summer fishing with the fish feeding fairly aggressively all summer long even though the water temperatures remained cool.

Early fall had the smallies really feeding well and we experienced some really great fishing, especially after the big NE gale that blew through in early September. Late fall was fun as well. Throwing flies for trout and salmon in the shallows was good, and though there didn't seem to be large numbers of Cohos around this year, the fish were of pretty good size, so that was fun.


Roger LaPenter, proprietor of Anglers All, said the way it’s looking right now with these bitterly cold temperatures that it won’t be long before ice fishing season is here.

“I’m thinking it will be safe for people to get out on the bay and start ice fishing right after deer season,” Roger said. “We should have enough ice by then.”

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. 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!

Musky mania,

I was in the bay today guiding waterfowl. The head of the bay was locked up until the wind blew west. It's open now. It will be at least a few more weeks. We have awesome Brown Trout, salmon, and walleye action just around the corner, any questions feel free to give me a call @715-292-4342

~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter and wife Carolyn from Anglers All, 715/682-5754 (http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com), report the following:

This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. After some fabulous fall fishing, the region got slammed with its first snowstorm of the season, with some areas receiving more than 28” of the fluffy white stuff.

Consequently, except for the most die-hard anglers, “fishing is pretty much on hold now until we get some ice,” said Carolyn LaPenter.

She advises people to take this time to organize their ice fishing gear.

“Water temperatures are really starting to drop now with this extended cold snap,” she noted, “and we’ve had several people in the shop who are getting ready for ice fishing.”

~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter and wife Carolyn from Anglers All, 715/682-5754 (http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com), report the following:

This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. At the moment, fall fishing is good for many different species. Smallmouth fishing continues to be solid.

Anglers are still catching walleye, some from shore during low-light hours, and “really picking up a little bit of everything,” noted Carolyn LaPenter. “Not everybody has put their boat away yet,” she said, “so there are still a few people getting out on the water."

The Coho salmon are around off and on in the streams and at the mouths of rivers. Some days seem better than others, but they're showing up and will continue to do so as fall progresses.

Trolling has been good between Houghton Point to the Onion River and near Long Island. Flat-lining and planer boards with stickbaits are the way to go, according to Luke Kavajecz, fishing guide at Anglers All.

Not to many divers around yet, some here and there but nothing like it will be soon. Just saw the first flock of Goldeneyes of the year yesterday, but it was a small flock of 15 or so. Some birds should push down with the colder weather on its way!

On the fishing side of things it has been great! Browns and Cohos are being caught near shore in the bay, Flicker Shads size 6 or 7 and stickbaits have been the go to. Fish are being caught anywhere from 8 out to 25 ft. depending on the day. From Washburn around Houghton Point and to the Onion has been a good area as well as around the tip of Long Island, Some people are fishing near shore in the islands as well.

Be Safe and Good Luck out there!!

Hey everyone, not a fishing report, but I was wondering if you guys are seeing many ducks out on the bay yet while you're chasing the fish? I'm thinking about coming up after diving ducks and hopefully lucking into some Long Tails. Any report is helpful. Lots of ducks? Few Ducks? Massive rafts of thousands!? Thanks in advance!

This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. Fall fishing is at its best right now for many different species. Smallmouth fishing continues to be solid. The fish are really feeding well, and this is primetime for smallmouth fishing.

Steelhead fishing on the Brule has been getting better. There has been a good push of fresh fish lately, and though there doesn't seem to be a ton of fish around this year, there are some really nice-sized fish. Egg patterns and small nymphs dead-drifted under an indicator in the deeper holes and runs in the early mornings have been best.

“October is such a great month to be doing ANYthing outside and the good fishing has just been a bonus,” observed Luke Kavajecz, fishing guide at Anglers All.

“We were on the river today for musky, and there were a few willing fish,” he said earlier in the week. “It’s always kind of cool to fool one of those fish with a fly rod.

“The water was a little high and on the chilly side, but the fishing was good for both northern pike and musky,” Luke continued. “A drift-boat trip down a musky river in October is hard to beat!”

Out on the big water, the Cohos are around. Some days seem better than others, but they're showing up and will continue to do so as fall progresses. Trolling has been good between Houghton Point to the Onion River and near Long Island. Flat-lining and planer boards with stickbaits are the way to go, according to Luke.

“Get out there and have some fun before the snow starts to fly!!” he added.

Fishing continues to be great on Chequamegon. Water temps are in the high 40's and then fish seem to be scattered all over the place. From shallow wood out to deep rocks and breaklines. The best bite has been Smallmouth. We have been catching big numbers of them with many surpassing the 5 lb mark. We have also been boating 1-2 nice walleyes a day. Most fish have come on Live Bait but every day we are starting to catch more and more on Artificials. Kastmasters, Kalin's Grubs, and Echotails have all been producing fish. The artificial bite will keep getting better and better as the water cools.

Good luck to everyone fishing this weekend! Looks like it's going to be a warm one!

This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. The walleye are starting to transition, moving into shallow waters. People are hooking walleye as well as northern pike in the deeper weeds off the rock pile and the channel ledges.

Smallmouth bass fishing is really great right now with anglers getting in on that classic fall bite. The smallies are into their fall feeding patterns, frequenting their usual haunts such as the rock pile and breakwall. They are also being caught out towards Brush Point and Long Island.

Coho salmon still are not out in large numbers, but they are starting to show up as the water temperatures cool down. The steelhead action is happening late in the day and should only get better as fall progresses

This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. Some of the best smallmouth bass fishing of the year is here and anglers are getting in on that classic fall bite.

The smallies are into their fall feeding patterns, frequenting their usual haunts such as the rock pile and breakwall. Anglers are finding the best bite is on sucker minnows as the walleye are feeding heavily now to fatten up in anticipation of winter.

Trout and salmon are being caught at the mouths of the Sioux and Onion rivers, as well as off of Long Island. Anglers are catching them early in the day mostly by flat-lining with stickbaits

Carolyn LaPenter said the Coho salmon are not out in large numbers yet, but they are starting to show up as the water temperatures cool down. “The ones that are being caught right now are the larger Cohos,” she noted.
