Coming up Sunday to do some stream trout fishing around Ashland. Is anything going to be fishable? I've heard there's been a lot of rain up there.

Hey! Thinking of fishing the bay next weekend (June 8th). I went out last fall and did well for steelhead / browns / pike around the lighthouse and breakwall plus a few other random areas. Fishing mainly 20-30 fow.

I've never fished in the spring. Will trout / salmon species be around this area or will I have to go deeper near bayfield / long island? We'll be mostly trolling with planner boards. Also, if trout/salmon are slow we might try shallower in the bay for walleye / pike.

Thanks for any info!

The Big Lake may be muddy right now but fishing is still great. Bass are in pre-spawn and starting to spawn mode. Most fishing is being done at Sand Cut, Oak Point and Brush Point areas, depending on water clarity. Trout and Salmon fishing has been very good in the shallower waters as water temperatures have remained in the 30’s. Fishing has been most productive trolling along the mud lines with stickbaits. The Inlands are having good luck with Bass, Walleye, Northern and Pan Fish all biting.

Call the local bait shops for any fishing news! (Anglers All, 715-682-5754 or River Rock, 715-682-3232).

It’s time to plan a fun fishing trip to Ashland, Lake Superior’s Hometown!!! “The Bite is On”!!!!!

CONDITIONS
Partly Sunny
Fished yesterday with a friend from 6:00-3:30. Between the two of us we landed 36 smallies with an average size of 19". Big fish of the day was a 21 1/2". All of our time was spent in Sand cut due to water clarity. Fishing was sporadic, catch two or three in 15 minutes then nothing for a half hour then get a few more within a few casts of each other. Tried many different presentations but the only one that seemed to work for us was crankbaits. It was a my best day on the bay and know it will still be hot for a few more weeks so hoping to get back up soon. Here are a few of the ones from yesterday.

Fishing has been good! And on a side note of the pic's of the pike we do keep some limits of pike each spring for a couple of big family fish frys and for some older folks that don't get fresh fish but once or twice a year! We let 75% of our pike go a year and all the big ones go back for spawning, It's a lot better than years ago when our family killed pike by the wash tubs for eating and pickleing! It is no differnt than folks going out and killing 20 or 30 trout and salmon a day and posting about it! Just thought I would put this in so as folks don't get worked up about the pics! Lips Sealed

Hey Folks sorry it's a late post for the big holiday weekend, But have been pretty busy chasing fish this week. Ok here's the quick skinny on what's going on around the bay right now! Mud mud and more mud! There are only a few bites going on in the bay it's self per say and that's Pike and Smallies with a few Sturgeon mixed in some days. The only bite right now for pike is fishing shore lines with dead smelt on the bottom and waiting for the pick up! Some good catches have been made this past week doing just this. As for the Smallmouth the only real bite is up in the sand cut area, as this is the only water that's clear enough to fish. Bass are being caught on all the norms for smallie fishing. All fish right now are pre spawn yet at this point, As water temps have been hovering around the 50 to mid 50's mark most days. But the fish are fat and sassy and during the right times of the days they are snapping! The walleye bite is pretty much nil to none right now and will stay this way for a week or so yet until we get some south west winds for a few days and it blows some of this mud out to open water. Once the bay cleans up fishing will get back on track for most species again, But again the bay has more mud in some areas than I have seen in a long time! don't get me wrong fish can still be had but you will work for them in the real muddy areas. As for trout and salmon fishing look for mud lines out near deep water which will not be hard to find! lol I have been hearing of some good catches from some of the guys targeting trout and salmon, But I am out of that game until early fall now! PM me or check with the local bait shops for current water and fish reports. Or better yet check out our FaceBook page and give it a like to stay up to date with daily fish and water reports! Tight line and have a great Holiday weekend! Smile Chequamegon

The BigLake may be muddy right now but fishing is still pretty good. The Bass are biting everywhere on the Big Lake with the Anglers using a variety of bait, both live bait and plastics like grubs, twister tails and tube jigs have been getting the fish to bite. The fish are very active now. The Inlands are having good luck with Bass, Walleye, Northern and Pan Fish all biting. The Creeks are just not good right now. They are too high and fast to fish but we always want to wet your appetite with the fish that are biting. It won’t be long before the waters clear on the Big Lake.

Look for the upcoming free fishing weekend in Wisconsin on June 1st and 2nd. Fish anywhere in Wisconsin for free without a license or trout stamp on Free Fishing Weekend. This includes all inland waters and Wisconsin’s side of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River. Other fishing rules apply, such as limits on the number and size of fish you can keep and any seasons when you must release certain fish species. So, pack up the family or call your friends and head to the water for fishing fun. Kids Fishing Day at the Northern Great LakesVisitorCenter will be Saturday, June 1, 2013 - 9:00am to 1:00pm.
