MOON PHASE (5%)
Fished the East side this past Saturday. Plenty of ice but snow is deep and some areas there's 3 to 4 inches of water on top of the ice, a real mess. I got my UTV stuck and it took almost an hour to dig it out. Plus I had chains on the rear wheels. Stay on or near the snowmobile trails and atv travel will be ok. Seem quite a few running around while we were there. Ended up with a nice mess of crappie.
Hey redneck, the ice is thick and snow covered. Gonna be some slushy spots. If you looking for northern you want to find small panfish near wood. Crappie fish is great on the flowage and there are some spots you can hit by walking out from Deerfoot.
Had Warren out for crappie yesterday and he did well. He used gulp on tungsten jigs. 4:30 -5:30 the bite was on. Have an opening tomorrow if anyone is interested.
Coming up to the Chip tomorrow for a day or two for some ice fishing. Never fished through the ice here before so this will be interesting. I'll be walking out from Deerfoot Lodge, no 4 wheeler or sled and I don't know about driving so I'll be hoofing it. Hopefully, I can find a few toothy critters out there. Anyone know what kind of ice I'll be looking at right now on the east side? Or, if anyone is looking to fish together tomorrow or Friday, let me know, I'll bring the bourbon and cigars. Cheers!
PJ, heres a link below on info about campsites on the lake. These are primitive sites. Carry in carry out. For more of the not- so- rough camping, with water and electrical, Lake Chippewa flowage campgrounds is pretty nice, but crowded during summer season. It doesnt matter what side of the lake your on, great fishing on both sides!
Ice fishing update: Since our recents snow falls, the lake is starting to slush out in areas. Which is limiting travel by wheelers. Wouldnt advise vehical travel at all. Sleds are always the best bet.
Give me a call to get in the books and out in the boat this up coming fishing season!
Just searching for some basic info about the big chip - anything would be greatly appreciated.
My brother and I are looking for a place to go camping twice a year and get to know a lake in depth. We camped here once before, but didn't do well at all. We have been going to Three Lakes chain for years but are getting sick of jet skis & the like during the day and the seemingly smallish fish population. We fish for just about everything but will be mostly going for Musky.
Is there a major difference in fishing on the east side vs wes side of the lake? From memory it seemed like the water was deeper on the east side. For June/July or August/September what side would you focus on more?
Are there any nice camp sites with direct water access? That is one thing we love about Three Lakes - we're right on the water and can get out there quickly.
Thank you in advance!

Brought 12 home today between 2 of us, nice fish I am curious to know if the crappies fishing is open for the month of March on the flowage, seems like it was closed in the past, I know regulations change from time to time, anyone knows about it I would like to know
