Coming up next weekend with the family.  Any good places to start or tips would be much appreciated. Looking for walleye / pan fish and maybe musky if time allows.  Feel free to pm. Never fished the area before

This weekend was a bust. I've been to this lake many times in the past and its ever been this bad. I fished the entire 4 day weekend with everything possible. trolling, drifting, casting with lures and fake baits, jigs and all live baits legally. We actually met up the the famous Joe Bucher on sunday, and he didn't catch much either. we tried the whole flowage and only caught a few 10 inch perch on worms, a few snakes on the surface, and some decent bluegill also on worms. All close to shore and on the bottom, from our boat. but we also caught a small musky. Check out the picture. It took a hole fathead. we herd the mayflies had filled up the fish, so that may have been the cause. Don't judge the willow on this weekend please. Its an amazing resort destination and was 6 feet higher than it normally is.

This is going to be my first time going to the Willow. I will be launching on the north east side launch off of cedar falls road. Can someone tell me if there is a fee for it? Thanks.

Must have had another mayfly hatch. Old carcasses and new hatch all over. Not to much luck.

I found 2 fishing poles at the boat landing at Cedar Falls Camp Ground on the Willow Flowage on Fathers Day. Call 608-751-6956 and identify.

Brightwork, there was one hanging on a limb of one of the big trees. When we were there. Mayflys still around?

@Tom Shockley, movable lantern hangers are a good idea to keep "campers" from putting nails into trees.  Unfortunately somebody who visited Paradise Island liked them so much they took them home. No hangers to be found...

It really is sad when people can't pick up after themselves. Thank you to the sportsman that help keep it clean!

Myself and another guy in the boat, boated 4 nice walleyes this past weekend, on Green/Orange Tandem Spinner baits, tight in the weeds at shore...no luck at all with crawlers or leeches.

I fished Sunday morning , mayflys must have hatch during the week lots of rotted mayflys and a fresh hatch also. Caught about 8 eyes but no legal fish. One on a leech on deep wood the rest on fatheads in the reed 3 to 5 FOW.                   

Brightworks  always try to keep All the campsites clean while I use them. It only takes a couple minutes to pick up the site when you leave.
