Hello,

My family has a cabin on Lac Courte Oreilles and I'm planning to bring our boat over to the Chippewa Flowage for the first time when I come up in a few weeks.  I was hoping to get some tips before I attempt this.  We're primarily planning to explore and enjoy the scenery and not do a lot of fishing.

I'm planning to launch from the CC South landing and leave my car there for most of the day if possible.  Would anyone recommend a different launch?

The bridge is just north of that launch?  Is it reasonably easy to bring a boat under the bridge to get to the eastern section of the flowage?  

Any recommendations for particularly pretty parts of the lake?  

Where's the best place to grab a burger and a beer or two?

Any other suggestions/recommendations?

Thanks!

Jim

Lee, water levels are about 4 inches low from full pool. No issues with the bog around the bridge as they blown out last year sometime. Clear sailing from here on out until something else happens.

Hello all,


My family is coming up for our yearly camping trip.  I am reaching out to see how the water levels are this year?  Just curious...


Also any current issues with the floating bog near the bridge? 


Thanks,

Lee

Had a great time on the Big Chip today! Nice to see that the wind died down from yesterday, that's for sure!

Caught plenty of walleyes, panfish and a variety of other species. Brush piles, cribs and shoreline bogs All produce fish.

I still do have availability on  selective dates yet this month.

Give me a call if you want to get out on this beautiful body of water and experience all that it holds!

Good luck, be safe and we'll see you on the lake!

It looked like the Northwest side of Birch to me.

Yes, another great video, Early... You have those kids “hooked” on the great Chip... Was that by Birch Island or west of Big Banana?  Just curious, cause it looked somewhat familiar...

Early- Love your videos. Family time.. The best part is your daughter talking about reading a novel and a character in the story. As an old educator that brought a smile to my heart. Well done.
