According to a local fishing guide...Anglers have been catching all species of fish this past week. The weather has been warm and stable bringing water temps into the high 60s to lower 70s. Largemouth bass have been in shallow weeds around docks and weed edges. Wackies and senkos have produced some nice catches. Smallmouth bass are leaving the bedding areas and are beginning to move to off shore areas sunken islands. Muskie activity is picking up and the bigger females are beginning to feed. Shallow weed beds are the target area with bucktails and twitch baits getting the most activity. Walleye activity is good with a variety of presentations working. Shallow weeds, rocky gravel points and rock bars are producing. Weather predictions is for some warmer temps and fishing activity should remain good. Good Luck Fishing!

Anglers across our area are experiencing some good fishing for a variety of species. Walleye action has been steady at dusk. Jig and minnow combinations are working but leeches are also making up some nice catches. We are seeing mayflies on the water so the walleye bite might slow a bit but fish will still be catchable. Walleyes are found on weed edges and sunken islands in 6 to 15 feet of water. Some nice perch are also present with these walleyes. Muskies are moving on bucktails and jerk baits. Fish have been relatively shallow around weeds and wood. These muskies will soon be in the summer patterns as water temps rise so anglers should explore points, shallow weeds, sunken islands and fish relating on the first break. Crappies are moving out of spawning areas and are beginning to suspend.  Northern action has been steady all spring. We are finding them on shallow weed flats on larger spinner baits and stick baits.

The weather has been excellent in this part of Wisconsin and the outlook is for air temps in the 70's and 80's. Walleye action remains good. Mostly active male eyes but the females should start to show themselves as they recuperate from the spawn and as water temps continue to rise. Some fish have moved into the weeds and wood. Slip bobbers tipped with a small crawler are taking fish. Crappies are spawning or almost completed spawning. Some fish remain shallow in reeds and sanding bottom areas. Small plastics with clip bobbers about a foot or two off the surface. Northern pike are providing a lot of action in the new shallow weeds. Some muskies are still shallow but many of the fish we saw were pretty marked up from the spawn. This Saturday is the muskie opener. Muskie just went through spawning so if you are one of the lucky anglers able to boat a fish please handle these fish with care, take a quick picture and get them back in the water. These fish may need some TLC this time of year so make sure they swim away. Good Luck Fishing!

Should be a great Memorial Weekend in the area!  Getting good panfish reports from most area lakes, and some walleye activity still.

Weed growth is a week or two behind, so less weeds to contend with, but it may also alter your normal spring spots some too.

Good Luck!

The fishing activity across our area has been good for a variety of fish species. The air temperature has been above normal this past week and is raising water temps quickly. Walleyes are post spawn with most of the activity from the males. Jig and minnow combinations in shallow water has produced some great action. Northern pike are aggressively hitting stick baits. Most of the action is coming from shallow newly emergent weed beds. Many small perch are hanging in this area and are the snack food of choice! The largemouth bass are starting to visit the large shallow back bays. The males are fairly aggressive and with the warming water should only get better. Spinner baits, stick baits and wacky worms should be the go to baits for bass this week. If the warm air temps continue the small mouth bass action will begin to fire up.

The river water levels are dropping and the current is slowing. Walleyes are beginning to move away from the dam areas. Tube jigs tipped with minnows along the shallow weeds and along the first break are getting bites.

The muskies are in shallow water and beginning to spawn. Please remember that the season does not start until memorial weekend. so all fish must be released immediately.
