I usually avoid the mouth due to the fact the natives are usually camping and fishing there.I usually fish all the outside bends of the river with jig and crawler within 1/2 mile of the mouth. U will catch walleyes lots the key is to drop your jig inbetweem the overhanging trees that litter the rivers banks. Fish up river for musky lots of them too.

Actually you should have tried to post under White River since the other posters obviously dont know where you are talking about. Wale I know of the place. I dont know how long the walleye stay but the best bet is to try it right on opener. I fish a little spot like that the day of opener and there are sometimes walleyes still hanging in the hole.I swear I saw a video some guy made of fishing below that dam, and that is how I know about it. He was catching small walleye on firetiger raps.I searched everywhere I could on the internet for that video but I couldnt find it.

I'm wondering anybody fishes the portion of the bad river that is under the dam at the white river flowage because I am wondering how long the walleye stay up there and also the northern? Also is the bag limit for walleye 3 15" minimum or is it different? and is northern any size and 5 per person as well? info would be appreciated thank you.

Fished copper falls park on wednesday afternoon. Didnt catch any trout, but had a blast on the smallmouth. After a 35 minute fight, I landed a 21" on a 6x tippet! There were a few trout rising near devils gate, but could not get them. Water was extremely clear and low. Also got to see a small bear...its nice when you can see bears in Wisconsin that are not eating out of a dumpster!! I love this place!

I have had my trout lures/bait bit off by pike. But most of my fishing is in Bayfield. Copper Falls is just a stop I make.

Closer to the lake they catch walleyes.

Explore and report!

I fish for salmon in Bayfield County every fall and take certain precautions for bears.

I camp on my bear infested property alone. I sleep in the back of my truck (my F150 has a topper) and I put my bait and fish cooler in the cab.

I bring my pump 12 guage shot gun and load it with turkey loads. The ranger told me that if I pump the gun, the bears will recognise the sound and run. Do not shoot the bears. Shoot above them into the trees. They will run. Turkey loads are fatal to almost anyting at close range. I do not have a slug barrel.

I eat in town. I have no human food at camp. I am a lazy camper!

When I fish, I am in the water and walk upstream. If I think I hear bears in the brush, I whistle. I also whistle when I am on the trail returning to the truck. But only in brushy areas.

Observe the bear tracks you see. A 8 inch long track is made by a 400 pound bear. Bears of that size no longer fear humans. Most bear tracks are smaller than that.

I leave the gun in the truck when fishing. I do not carry any other device.

I did have a run in with a bear last fall. It was about 7am. I was in the river. I saw a 250 pound bear accross the 15 foot wide river. Downstream about 50 yards. He did not see me, the wind did not let him smell me. So I talked to him in a loud voice for about 15 minutes. Then he left and I continued fishing.

Don't let a few bears ruin you trip up north! The scenery is fabulous. The people friendly.
