Headed up to three lakes in early June this year. Have never fished this chain. We are targeting Walleye and Crappie. Not looking for hot spots but general areas for the species above. Any help would be appreciated. Feel free to PM if you want. Thanks

Three of us out today. Fished Little Fork, Big Fork, and Laurel. One 4" rock bass. I think I am going to give up until open water. Haven't caught a fish jigging in 2 years now on this end of the chain and I live here year round. They have to be somewhere. I know a lot of spots where they are not at. Word from everyone I talk to is the same, no fish.

This area of the state got a significant (10"+) snow event within the last week if you look at posts for other lakes in Oneida/Vilas/Forest counties and above freezing temps are expected.  I'd hesitate from driving a vehicle out in that combination.  Just looking to get stuck in slush.

I plan on coming up to the Three Lakes area next week. I was wondering if anyone could fill me in on ice conditions and snow on the lakes. I was hoping to drive out if possible. Thanks in advance!!!

I have family on the chain and have fished it for some time. Targeting panfish is like anywhere else find weeds u should hook into some. In Aug heavy weeds in most spots on the chain taper out at 6-8 fow I'd suggest finding the edge and use your trolling motor to move around and work the edge. Otherwise always a sure bet if you don't mind losing a few hooks, I'd look at a map and locate some cribs.

Good luck

Have had a home on chain for 15 years.  The chain does have panfish.  At that time of the year and downed trees will hold fish.  Also weed edges, especially the inside edges.  Crappie and perch more plentiful than gills, but all are around.
