I had clients Drake and Grace Deming from Sugar Camp with me today. I was concerned when I saw all the mayflies on the water. We didn't have any wind at all until about noon ..We caught about 10 walleyes but only 2 legals.  Had 4 or five nice perch and big bluegill .  Grace also caught a nice smallmouth.

Fished north end from campground on the 15th and 16th. I had trouble finding any 'eyes. Caught a dozen or so shorts and lost several "too bigs" at the boat.

Bog was hooked on stoney point on the 15th. Due to high winds it move into Osprey Island and left about 25% there. Moved to east shore. On the 16th AM it was still near the island, but that evening it was moving towards the river outlet. Did not fish the 17th.

I camped the 5th threw the 11th there was a mayfly hatch on the 6th right in front of paradise island , it was incredible I thought our week was shot It must have been isolated because I didn't see a lot of them elsewhere. Fishing was great our group of six caught at least 250 walleye 35 to 40 legal and around 150 panfish. We kept enough for a fry and and a couple fish to take home . Walleye were mainly on slips with leeches we fished wind blown reeds and shorelines 7 FOW and less. Panfish the same places but a third of a crawler.

Gary Koch of Minocqua fished with me today on the flowage.  We fished about 5 places before catching the five walleyes we kept on the last spot. The wind was perfect and no mayflies on the water yet. Jig and minnow caught most of the fish.

The may flies are here the sonar was solid today with a few on top. We still managed a pretty good stringer but had to work on them. Most fish were caught on slip bobber's tipped with leeches. Dave Miller did a great job.

Shadrap88:


I have heard the bog is being a PIA near the mouth of the river on the north end.  I read a story here, heard another one yesterday about guys having to be transported because they couldn't get back to their truck/trailer while I was working...  Other than that I can't tell ya a lot...

I had Jack Tenge of Minocqua with me this morning on the willow. We started fishing about 10.15 with a comfortable breeze but it soon turned into more wind than needed. The fish cooperated though in short order ..  Some came on jig and minnow and some on leeches and slip bobbers. We kept 6 walleyes and a few perch.  Didn't see any may flies yet..

Any reports on the runaway floating bog at the north end? Can I get into the main body of the flowage from the Cedar Falls Campground landing? Thanks.

Hey Musky Ben... You are 100% correct. After I saw the post from Brightwork I immediately started researching native Wisconsin lamprey. There are two parasitic lampreys native to Wisconsin. The Silver Lamprey is mainly found in the Mississippi River system and the Chestnut Lamprey is found throughout the state and is the most common. There are four other non-parasitic lamprey common to our waters that pose no threat at all. The one Brighthouse shot a picture of is most likely a Chestnut lamprey and is pretty much harmless. I should have done some research before my last post. The word "Lamprey" in the Willow just freaked me out. I can rest easy now! Have a great day all!
