Used to catch perch consistently up to 13.5" and one of the best smallmouth areas I know of. Have caught dozens 17-21.5". This was years ago, sold cottage.

I don't know that this page gets used a lot since not very many people fish this lake. I personally have a cabin on the lake so I fish it every summer. I have always thought it unsafe to fish during Ice fishing season due to the current, and parts of the flowage never freezing over. I'll be posting more though during the spring, summer, and fall. If anyone else reads this, please let me know and I'll give updates whenever I go out. 

To me, this flowage seems like a very underrated place to fish. I find myself finding decent northern and fat smallmouth every time I fish it. Personally, I have the best luck up by the upper dam and on the sides of the channel leading up to it. I'm talking about the area between the two bridges. I haven't had much of a problem with the bullheads lately. I'm not sure what happened to them... There are TONS of small perch everywhere and I'm fully convinced large ones exist in the lake. There are also good sized Muskie swimming around. Finding them seems to be the difficult part. As always.

Again, let me know if anyone actually reads this page, and have a great weekend!

Spent a week on the Flowage from 6/9- 6/16. Landed dozens of northerns up to 27 inches and several smallmouth. We also managed some small muskies. Primarily saw action on bucktails in the cabbage weeds. Water temps were between 68-70. Didn’t fish much on the last two days due to several inches of rain. Weeds were lower than in past years due to the cold spring. Fishing was excellent.

Anybody been doing any fishing here lately? Caught a few smallies off shore last time I was here late last summer, wondering how other people are doing by the Bradley Dam and beyond

Was curious if anyone has any ice fishing tips. I've heard about some big perch under Bradley dam...but where could we set up a portable shack? Not looking to deplete the fish population!! Thought the kids would like to get some rod n reel action! Any help appreciated Smile

edit: we've probably had less luck because the last 2-3 years there has been cruddy weather the entire opening weekend.

arny I usually come up on opening weekend with family, we usually go the Bradley Dam one morning. In recent years its been slower and more walleye than perch are caught, plus those stinkin bullheads Doh!. There is also the possibility of catching a nice pike bass or muskie from the shore. Use live bait and you should have some action but the past few years I have been disappointed to be honest.

Does the big perch run that I've heard several people talk about still take place in the spring here in recent years or has it died off as of late. It's quite hard to find a spot where you can catch perch on a consistent basis and from what I've heard this is no secret as it is hard to get a spot by the dam when it is on. Yet the perch are still there yearly.
