I have done good enough on Soo Lake years back but the water seems so low now days.

Fishing has been awesome this year, very slow year for ice fishing last season but since the water warmed the fishing has been great in Price county. I just wonder why the tourism group only discusses musky. Plenty of other great species to catch
I hope it's getting better. I am going there next week. I will fish Soo Lake perhaps for the first time in years. I fish the Flambeau River. Sure, lots of smallmouth Bass but the ave. size in about 10" Very few walleye anymore neither. I dont bother with muskies but the northern numbers seem up in the river the last few years. Not much to brag about as for me. The deer hunting sucks. Sure , I get the business about how I should learn how to hunt and I dont know how to scout. I 've heard for years, " go back in" , " do your scouting" , " hunt smart, not hard" . I can keep a trail cam out for a year and likely get only a few bucks. In 2014 I kept a trail cam out for 11 months and got 1 buck on the cam. The fishing is not that good. I guess if you fish it a lot it will be ok but it is nothing like the Mississippi River, or Winnebago or a lot of southern lakes that produce fish like crazy. . As for Price co.,? ? Grouse, bear, and smallmouth are good .

I have had a cabin in the area since 1996, and i can tell you the fishing in Price County is excellent. The chain is superb. I have talked to lake residents, and they say the fishing is poor. Don't be mislead. I talked to a guy on Wilson that said he had never caught a walleye 5 minutes after I landed an 18 incher. Other angler's success does not indicate the quality of the fishing.

Family friends just spent a week up there on the Phillips chain. Only a handful of keeper fish to speak of. After the draw down, compared to last 20 years we've been going up there, this is awful.
I posted a fishing report on the Phillips Chain giving out all of our hot spots over the years, including the fishing methods, since we are no longer coming to the area. Surprise, it was deleted. Looks like there needs to be some competition for fishing reports.

Local Guide Report - If you have been outside lately you probably noticed the prolonged heat wave. As air temps continue to push the 90 degree mark water temps are also rising. Saturday I had surface water temps at 82.5. Not only is that warm but it can really stress the muskies. The high water temps reduces the oxygen levels in that water column. Anglers hooking, fighting and landing a fish from this shallow water can REALLY stress these fish out. Releasing a fish even after resting it in a net for a while can still cause delay mortality. As an angler it may be better to forgo fishing for a few days and let the extreme heat pass and water temps cool slightly before heading back out to some of your favorite spots. When water temps reach this level our fisheree becomes very delicate. Some anglers have reported seeing dead muskies floating and this can be a sign of the delay mortality associated with releasing stressed out fish.
The other concern for anglers is when we have this warm weather we also experience some high boat traffic. This is a great time to do a little night fishing. Besides the bugs you usually have the lake to yourself. Also the rivers provide some good action this time of year as muskies move to more predictable spots.
Good Luck Fishing !

Per a local fishing guide - The muskie activity this past week was pretty good. Many of our fish were found off the deeper weed edges. Large spinner baits dropped to the bottom and then quickly retrieved brought many fish to the boat. Bucktails in the #8 blade sizes with a very fast retrieve also provided action. We also fished some mid lake deep humps and saw action on dawgs and crank baits. Afternoons and evenings provided the best action on stained water lakes.
We did get some trolling action on the clearer deep water lakes from dusk until early morning with some success around lunar majors and minors.

According to a local guide: Muskie fishing was excellent this past week. Our groups produced some nice muskies and first for 2 anglers. The action during the day has been on bucktails, suicks, and dawgs. Evening fish on top water and large crank baits. Muskies have been located in weed beds and weed edges. Stable conditions should continue to provide steady action.
Bass fishing especially largemouth have been very aggressive. Fish are tight to cover, laid downs and docks during high skies. Drop shots and scum frogs are producing.
Walleye action was better during the day when cloud cover is present and fish are biting on jig and leech combinations in 10 feet of water. We are mainly fishing stain water during the day.
