Thank you for the report. Yes, the weather has been great and looks to continue that way. We have 4 guys in our boat so we'll be throwing a lot out at them. Enjoy the weekend fellas, we head up tomorrow early AM and then got a week on the Willow. I'll report back after.

FISHING REPORT
7/24/15 10:20 AM CST
Fishing was ok at best this week, caught gills,perch, crappie and some walleye. I used ice jigs and plain gold hooks with small leeches and crawler pcs for the pan fish. I had to find deeper wood cover, stumps and stay close to the bottom. walleye caught drifting with jigs and crawlers and I caught one keeper fishing for the pan fish.Weather was beautiful.

Hi -

I really appreciate the responses thus far. Thank you. I went to the grocery store today and stocked up on frozen cod and perch for our trip. It's a "back up plan"...

Two years ago we did well on Lake Katherine. Jigs with leaches right off the boat launch near the swim platform...thats my best advice for up in that area. I only go up once a year.

The bait store normally recommends "glow in the dark" jigs with leaches.

I'll post my report the week after we come back, maybe that will help others. Thanks guys so far!

Hall333, I'm new to the Willow, just fished it a couple of times with little to show for it, but I was told by a local that July and August are not good months to fish. Let us know how you do. Good luck and good fishing.

Hall333, I fished over the weekend and I had a tought time. Friday I caught some nice perch and gills, fished in 9 fow with wood. I used small leeches and crawlwer pcs on ice jigs,fish were tight to the wood.I tryed slips but only caught them on small jigs. Sunday was terrible. We are saposed to have stable weather most of the week that might turn things around. Im off all week and plan to fish alot I will post a report later in the week.

My friends and I are heading to the Willow Flowage for a week long camping trip. We've been doing this for the past 6+ years and the fishing has just been okay for us...at best. This time I'd like to change that...any ideas on catching bass/walleyes etc? We leave this Saturday the 25th.

Thank you in advance. Hopefully we can eat what we catch with your advice!

I use the LakeMaster chip on my Humminbird. Has proven to be very accurate for the Willow.

Water is dropping fast. Down about 18" in the last 2 weeks. There are many stumps that start to appear about 3' down. Bugs are thick starting just before dark.
