~Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com Reports: The winds have been too high and cold to encourage any anglers to try their hand at fishing the big lake. This time of year is a waiting game for the ice to freeze over and be safe enough to ice fish. The Inlands are usually the first waters to show safe ice but it will be a while yet. For a safe ice fishing reports give us a call at Anglers All and we will keep you informed on the ice conditions. In the mean time, check over your ice fishing gear and be prepared for the upcoming exciting season

~Fishing Guide Nate Baron from Up North Guide Service and Fishing Guide Scott Bretting from River Rock Inn and Bait Shop, 715-682-3232 http://riverrockinn.net Reports: Hard water fishing is just around the corner. There are some reports of anglers getting on the ice this past weekend. Most area Lakes are unsafe with a few inland Lakes having up to 3" of ice. Proceed with caution at this time of year and have all the necessary safety equipment along in case of an incident. Remember, no fish is worth a life or risking the lives of others. Whitecaps are still rolling in on Chequamegon Bay with the recent high winds. Stream and River fishing for Trout and salmon is now closed as of November 15th. Lake Trout fishing will re-open on Lake Superior; December 1st. Open water fishing on the Bay was excellent this past week for Smallies, Walleyes and Northern Pike as the fish put on the feedbags in anticipation for the long hard Winter ahead. Trolling Spoons and Stickbaits in the South Channel on the break along side of long island in 40 FOW for Steelhead, Browns and Lakers this past week was very good. Constant action, with a fish on all the time. Competition at this time of year was down to one other boat on the water. There are still some hardcore Musky fishermen hitting the water during Deer season. Large Suckers, Jerkbaits, Medusa's and Bulldawgs have all been working well. Musky season closes in the Northern zone November 30th. Good luck fishing and tight lines to all !

The fishing report isn't changing too much at this time of year. The bait shops say their report remains pretty much the same right now.

~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com Reports: Trolling for Trout and Salmon is still good. Stream fishing is still good with Trout and Salmon biting, but keep in mind that the streams are only open until November 15th. Anglers that haven’t put their boats away or Anglers that may still want to try fishing from one of the docks on the shore will most likely catch fish. If you aren’t a deer hunter and you are looking for something to do…come to the Chequamegon Bay and catch some fish! The bottom line is, “If you can get out on the Lake…You will catch fish”! Anglers are looking ahead and can’t wait for Ice Fishing on both the Inland Lakes and Chequamegon Bay!

~Fishing Guide Nate Baron from Up North Guide Service and Fishing Guide Scott Bretting from River Rock Inn and Bait Shop, 715-682-3232 http://riverrockinn.net Reports: Fishing on the Streams and Rivers remains good for Coho and Brown trout with a good number of Steelhead being caught on Crawlers and Spawn Sacs. Smallmouth Bass fishing has been excellent on Chequamegon Bay. Jigging spoons, Berkley gulp, Crankbaits, Bladebaits and live Sucker minnows have all been doing well. Walleye, Northern Pike, Trout, Salmon and Whitefish are also being caught as well. Muskie fishing has been very good with most anglers dragging large Suckers. Jerkbaits, Bulldawgs and Medusas have also been picking up a fair number of fish.

~Fishing Guide Nate Baron from Up North Guide Service and Fishing Guide Scott Bretting from River Rock Inn and Bait Shop, 715-682-3232 http://riverrockinn.net Reports: Stream fishing has been excellent this past week. The recent rains have pushed a lot of fish up the Rivers and Streams as they go through the annual Fall spawning rituals. Limits of Coho Salmon and Brown Trout are being caught on Spawn, Night Crawlers, Spoons and Spinners. Smallmouth Bass fishing has been excellent on Chequamegon Bay. Fishing the deeper weedbeds and edges in 14-24 FOW with Crankbaits, Tube jigs, Football jigs and live sucker rigs has been the most productive. Musky fishing on Inland Lakes has been very good with a lot of fisherman starting to drag large Suckers.

Just a quick note to folks thinking about coming north for trout and salmon fishing this weekend around the bay area. With recent rains this week and last night streams will most likely be high and dirty on the lower stretches. Just thought I might save some folks the trouble of driving for disappointment in most case's. I will report back today yet so don't lose hope! Chequamegon

It's that time of year again were most anglers trade rods for guns and bowhunting and to enjoy other passions. But remember this is one of the best bites of the year for all species. The bay continues to fish well most days from trout and salmon to the hot fall smallmouth bite. We have also been boating some really nice catches of walleyes most days as well. For the trout and salmon anglers here is the latest reports for the bay area. Fish are both shallow and deep if nothings going on along the beaches try a little deeper, and try putting a dipsie or two out along with your boards. north of Washburn to Bayfield have all been productive areas lately. Hot colors are best most days for lures but natural patterns have there place in the line up as well! All local rivers and creeks have trout and salmon in them at this time I will not name them as the pressure can be too great at times on these spawning fish. And do try too release more of the females caught guys our fishery depends a lot on natural reproduction for the future! As for the bay fishery it's been on fire most days big time catches of both tank smallies and big eye's have been coming to the boat! As always I use live bait more than artificial on most given days! not to say lure won't put a pile of fish in the boat for you I just like live meat down there you never know what your going to hook up with it! Live suckers and fat heads have both been working well, Look to edges along the channel to the south end of the wall and the rock pile for the most consistent bass bite. A few big pike have also been boated over the last week fishing the bay. I am still booking open water trips for the next month or so yet so if your looking at killer fall trip give me a shout SOON before it's over. It's a little early yet but ice fishing is just around the corner here on the big lake and with that we are already booking late Dec early Jan ice fishing trips. Book now for a great ice fishing experience this winter on Chequamegon bay. Tight lines Chequamegon

Heading up to Ashland / Washburn area hoping for some trout / salmon this weekend. Just curious if fish are still out in the bay as opposed to all up in the streams?

I'll mainly be fishing around the Souix / Onion and lighthouse. Also, there currently is only one other person fishing with me, so if anybody is interested I'd be happy to take 1-2 more people in my boat.

You will need the inland trout stamp to fish any streams. If you are fishing the lake right at the mouth of the river, you will be OK.

CONDITIONS
Sunny

AIR TEMP
66° - 70° F
Pike's creek has good water level and flow. I cold not find the trail to the mouth. There is a new logging road type trail that seems incomplete.

I did fish from Hwy 13 to the Red Dam and up to where the stream forks. I caught one small brown trout at the dam. I saw 3 reed beds above the dam. I saw no other fish.

The gate at Red Dam is blocked by a tree trunk. I am shocked any fish made it past the dam.

I saw no fish at the mouth of Fish Creek. The guys there said they caught 2 fish there on Wednesday. I stopped at the White River dam. There is plenty of flow from the dam downstream. but I did not land any fish. I spent little time there.

The old fisherman at Sioux River did not catch any fish the 2 days he was there.

I stopped at Tyler Forks. I explored the gorge. Very beautiful. No trout but lots of grouse. If Tyler Forks is destroyed by the iron mine, I will be one unhappy person.
