~ 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. 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 is always a thrilling adventure in the Ashland area! Chequamegon Bay is famous for its world-class smallmouth bass fishing.

The 3rd annual Chick-uamegon, a lighthearted women’s 5K/10K walk/run and 20-mile bike race, offers terrific prizes and cute awards. Where else can you see happy, smiling runners wearing pastel-colored tutus, glitter face paint, pink wigs and butterfly wings?

Chick-uamegon participants are advised to come dressed to win in their most “bling” attire for this exciting and colorful event set for Saturday, Nov. 8. Finishers each receive a tiara and medal, plus there will be prizes for the top three participants wearing the most outlandish “bling” outfits imaginable.

New this year is the added challenge of a 20-mile bike race through the surrounding countryside, which will start at 9:30 a.m. The 5K and 10K run/walk steps off at 11 a.m. at Ashland’s Lake Superior Elementary School.

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

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.

Thanks for the helpful tip, Surf-N-Turf and ifitswims... I will not use the word "snagging" or "snagged" in future posts. I did not realize there was actually a technical difference and was simply trying to get away from using the word "catching" or "caught" all of the time. Sorry for the confusion!

Agree! Try "hooking", "boating", or "catching"

Hey Mary Mcphetridge, You need to stop using the word 'snagging, when you really mean 'catching'. Snagging is illegal.

"Mary McPhetridge posted on Chequamegon Bay, Ashland County.

Anglers are snagging them early in the day mostly by flat-lining with stickbaits."

This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. Some of the best smallmouth bass fishing of the year is coming up and anglers are already getting in on that classic fall bite. The smallies are definitely into their fall feeding patterns with anglers snagging them out near the rock pile and back into the breakwall.

There's still a lot of dirty water moving around out there so just keep an eye on it and look for clean water. The edges of the dirty water can be good as well.

“It's getting to be that most wonderful time of the year,” observed Luke Kavajecz, fishing guide for Anglers All. “The leaves are super colorful, mornings on the water have been crispy cool, and the fishing is fun.”

Carolyn LaPenter said the salmon are not out in large numbers yet, but they are coming in in waves as the water temperatures cool down.

“On the big water, everybody seems to be Coho-crazy,” said Luke. “The fish are definitely around and they seem to be of pretty good size this year.

“The fish are moving shallow in the mornings and evenings and then pushing out over deeper water during the daylight hours,” he continued. “Fish have been caught up in the rivers, too.”

Speaking of which, the inland trout rivers like the Sioux and Onion are fishing great right now for brookies and browns. Fall is the time to fish them aggressively. “The brook trout are all colored up and are just beautiful right now,” Luke noted.

The Brule River is looking great right now as well. Steelhead are trickling in and will only get better as the fall moves on.

The walleye are starting to transition, moving into shallow waters and people are trolling for them over the weed beds and in the drop-off to the channel.

This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. Fishing in the bay after the big storm has been great, according to Luke Kavajecz, fishing guide for Anglers All. “The fish have been loving this cool weather and we've been experiencing a great bite out there.”

However, with much of the bay really dirty, the key has been to find the clean water. The winds and currents are pushing all that muddy water from the big gale around, so things change all the time. *And please make sure to keep an eye out for floating debris and deadheads (totally or partially submerged logs) left over from the storm when running your boat.

“The smallmouth bass are getting into their fall feeding patterns,” said Kavajecz, “and we're seeing some great-looking fish starting to school up out there.” Anglers are again snagging smallies out near the rock pile and back into the breakwall. Carolyn LaPenter noted that anglers are having good luck fishing them with sucker minnows.

The walleye are starting to move into shallow waters and people are trolling for them over the weed beds and in the drop-off to the channel.

There have now been confirmed reports of brown trout and salmon in the Sioux and Onion rivers, Carolyn said, with people trolling for them with stickbaits. “The water depths are going to vary depending on the wind direction,” she said. “There are Coho salmon and browns in Fish Creek as well,” she added.
