The lack of chatter is with good reason - this chain can be tough and you have to work to find fish. I have fished it for nearly 15 years and still learning but if you put in your time and effort you will be rewarded. Here is a sample of this past season.
You will periodically find our reports on Lake Link at the Price County Lakes, Price County thread. Or, take a look at our website's Reports - Trail and Recreation page. Hope to see you soon in Price County!

Park Falls DNR Reports - The warm weather the past few days has really warmed up water temperatures fast. Temperatures this past weekend ranged from 69-74 degrees. Crappies are finishing up spawning and bluegill spawning is in full swing on most lakes. Largemouth bass have begun nesting as well. Bluegills can be caught in 2 feet of water or less along shorelines with a bobber and worm. It is a great time of year to get out for panfish action. Northern pike have been hitting well near weed on spinner baits. Muskellunge season has been underway for just over a week now. Many small fish have been caught but the big fish have been tough to come by. Small baits work well this time of year. Try small bucktails or jerk baits. Continued stable weather this week should really increase fish activity. Have fun fishing!

Went out this morning at 6am. Fishing west of the north island. Caught a couple 10in on minnows and a couple 9s on lures. Still haven't found a great pattern yet but will try more today!
Hi guys, the family and I are heading up to the pike lake chain for the week on Sunday and was wondering how things are going up there? Also I will try and post at least a couple reports during my time up there!
Thanks a lot everybody!

Spent last weekend fishing out of the Wild Goose. Water temps (low 50's) were favorable for the spring bite.
Walleyes - pretty good action, although EXTREMELY light bite. As usual, target deeper water during the day and chase them into the shallows as evening approaches. Evenings were better for us than the mornings.
Crappie - spring bite is just starting as the water approaches the higher 50's. Good numbers and sizes are holding for what the chain is known for. During the day, we found them in 12 fow.
