The kids caught enough to eat, but action was pretty slow.

Little Birch- could not agree more !!!!  Have been coming to this lake for over 15 years and in the last 3 years fishing has really gone down hill   

Where weed beds use to be is now just mud and sand    This year was no different   Let's hope Mother Nature lets things get back to the way it was    Its not too much fun to spend a couple of grand on a vacation and show little if any fish for it!   

Just me throwing my two cents in and let's all keep tight lines

Thank you DNR for listening to the Birchwood community! Your recent decision now reflects community sentiment as presented in our 8/29/17 community stakeholder meeting. The BCABLA Lake Association who treated our lakes with herbicides in 2013-2014-2015 please concentrate your good efforts on lake planning, natural ways to improve water quality, nearshore property owner improvements, lake education and lake recreational use which can result in many of us re-joining your Association in the near future. It has been a good fishing year with improvements in panfish size and the return of walleyes - all stocked by Walleyes For Tomorrow and your good support so lets continue in that more pleasant direction. Your joining DNR in this new direction will be a welcomed change by our community!

I'm glad to hear this action was stopped on a lake. I hope they do it statewide. They allowed some cabin owners who build on the stream inlets to our lake that are and will alway's be swampy to kill weeds with pesticides. Well, all of a sudden all of our beautiful cabbage beds disappeared on out in the main lake. Another whole long shoreline that was a great fish holder because of the weeds was void of weeds in a years time. This practice is terrible for the lakes and needs to stop. Like stated prior, if you don't like the weeds, go somewhere else. Your evidently not a fisherman or care about the fishery.

The People have been heard. NO MORE HERBICIDE IN CHETAC.

Thank you Alex and the DNR for being perceptive to the majority and not the minority. One rogue group doesn't make a community and if you study the July fishing report, you'll see that folks come to this lake to FISH and cherish it for what it is.   

There are 13,000+ lakes in Wisconsin, move to a clear water lake if you don't like Chetac. Thank you for keeping Chetac one of the best fishing lakes in the state. 2-5 years from now we should be back to normal.

PS- fishing was OK this year, water is clearer than normal and surface water temps were down 10 degrees from normal in August. (cold summer season and lots of rain).

Fishing Big Chetac this week, marking many fish suspended and wondering what these are ? Can't seem to find any smallies in usual spots. Any help would be nice.

Yes we just got back home from a fun up there at Big Chetac Resort. Fishing was pretty good a little slow but we caught fish and the crappies are a little bigger than last year. Water temp was cool when we got there but was warming up.
