~ 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. 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.

For the most complete and up-to-date fishing report, just give us a call at Anglers All and we will keep you informed!

~ 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. 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.

Fished the morning of Sept 2 with Chad Soare of ROD and Reelz guide service. My wife and I boated 15 smallies biggest was 21 inches. All were over 17 except 2 that were 15. Lots of fun with a great guide and very reasonable price. Slip bobbers and minnows for bait, easy relaxing morning!

~ 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. Following Wednesday’s unprecedented storm surge, the shoreline is littered with debris and some docks may have been damaged.

Extreme wind speeds as high as 50 mph and high water levels in Lake Superior combined to create a 10-foot tidal surge in some places along the south shore. Boaters should watch for floating “deadheads” (totally or partially submerged logs) and other flotsam out on the water that could pose a hazard.

The smallie fishing had been good right before this happened,” said Carolyn LaPenter. “But this storm could change everything. We won’t know for a few days what effect it’s going to have.”

Fishing for all species had been up and down last week with all of the changes in the weather and the severe storms and heavy rains, she added.

Carolyn urges anglers to definitely check with a local bait shop or fishing guide before heading out on the water.
