DNR Reort - Muskie action last week was hot for a lot of anglers. Big bucktails such as cowgirls and top water baits provided the best action. Jerk baits also put a few fish in boats. The Flambeau River has provided better action than lakes when boating pressure is high. Largemouth bass have been biting well on the area’s smaller lakes. Finesse jigs or rubber worms worked through wood in 3-6 feet of water has been working great. Panfish have been biting well. Anglers have been catching bluegills and crappies near cribs or suspended over deeper weeds. Try drifting a slip bobber with either crawlers or minnows.

DNR Report - The walleye bite has been hit or miss lately for most people. Walleyes are being found in 10-15 feet of water near any weeds or wood structure. Slip bobbers with leeches or crawlers has been the go to bait. Largemouth and smallmouth have been hitting very well using rubber worms or top water baits. Largemouth are near shallow weed cover and wood. Smallmouth are a little deeper in 3-10 feet of water and near rocks or wood. Panfish action has been decent. Crappies are being found in their mid-summer areas in deeper water near cribs. The bigger bluegills are also being found in the same areas and near deeper weed beds. Slip bobbers with minnows are working for crappies and crawlers for bluegills. The musky bite has been tough this past week but anglers are putting fish in the boat. This week anglers were seeing fewer follows than the past few weeks, but there has been more fish willing to bite. Any size of bucktails in green or orange have been working best. Muskies have been found shallower on cool days and deeper on sunny warm days.

Fished Saturday and Sunday. Two different bodies of water. Saturday hooked big fish on the 5th cast. Tried backing out of wood with trolling motor while fighting fish. While doing so big rock had other plans for me. Broke the housing on trolling motor and didn't get a good hook set. One jump and gone. Looked like about 43-46. I went home and cobbled together a trolling motor. Went out Sunday lost one on a bucktail and another one on a bulldawg. Finally in about 8 feet in a ledge I got to touch a 36 in her. About 8 hours of fishing and one to show for it. What did I learn? Nothing, just one of those weekends. Next weekend is only 5 days away.

Stayed at the cabin over the holiday week and had decent results:

Solberg was a lot of fun.  Crushed the eyes will several up to 17".  Got a few nice crappies, perch and a mammoth gill fishing wood in 6 fow.

Wilson was tough, but did manage an 18" eye and some decent gills in shoreline wood.  Raised no muskies and all crappies very small.

South harper produced some decent largemouth,  small pike and a 23" eye.

Chelsea was fun with loads of nice crappies suspended off weedlines.  Wife caught a 32" pike on a senko up high in 18fow.

Cast off the 13 wayside on the s fork flambeau and caught a 34" pike.

Was productive everywhere we went.  Just had to try different tactics till something worked.

After a warm holiday weekend, water temperatures have returned to the mid-70s. Muskellunge activity has picked up with many anglers reporting many follows using top water baits and big buck tails. Muskies are being found in the 3-10-foot range and near weeds. Smallmouth bass activity has picked up with fish being caught on the local rivers using top water and rubber worms. Largemouth have been biting well near heavy cover such as logs or lily pads using rubber worms. Walleye action has been tough with some prolonged mayfly hatches but anglers are having some success using leeches on jigs or under slip bobbers. Panfish are still being caught in 8-15 feet of water using crawlers or small leeches. Panfish are being found near cribs or deep weeds. Now that water levels have returned to near normal levels, stream anglers are again having success for trout using spinners and worms.

I caught several smalll mouth last week and it was obvious they had not spawned yet. Looks like this is going to be one of those years they spawn into July. Catch and release is still appreciated.

DNR FISHING REPORT - Fishing has been very average this past week. The water temperatures are right around 70 degrees. Most fish species have finished spawning and are in post spawn feeding mode. Walleyes are being caught when on lakes where there are not large mayfly hatches going on. Leeches under a slip bobber have been working best for most anglers in 7-10 feet of water off of weed edges. Larger bluegills are also being found in these same areas and can be caught on small leeches or crawlers. Crappies have dispersed into the deeper water as well. Drifting with minnows and slip bobbers over deeper weeds or near cribs is the best way to target them. Northern pike have been hitting well on spinnerbaits over shallow cabbage beds. Largemouth and smallmouth bass have moved off or their nests and are being caught on rubber worms and top water baits such as frogs and poppers. Largemouth can be found in shallow water near thick cover such as lily pads or wood. Smallmouth bass can be found around rocky bottom as well as near wood. Muskie action has gotten better now that water temperatures have stabilized. The top water bite has really picked up this past week. Look for muskies over weeds on 3 to 10 feet of water. Bucktails and glide baits are also great bait choices this time of year. Bright colors such as orange or chartreuse are good for the stained water in Price County.

Fished Musser flowage on 6/11 from 5:45am til 10am. Used bucktails and topwater(whopper ploppers). Fish I saw were very shallow in less than 5 feet. Wound up with 2 follows to the boat and 2 missed strikes. That's musky fishing. Released a 29 pounder last year, still looking for that 35.

Price County Fishing Guide Report - The water levels are about normal after some nice weather the past few days. The walleye action continued to be good especially at dusk. Slip bobbers and leeches saw the best activity. This bite may slow as we are experiencing a large may fly hatch. Water temps have risen into the mid 60's and largemouth bass are on the beds and cruising the shallows. Tube jigs, jig and craws, and wackys are catching fish. The crappie bite was good last week but fish are beginning to move out of the shallows into deeper water. Blue gills are all over the shallows but finding the bigger fish may be challenging. Muskie activity is picking up with the warmer temps. Bucktails are getting the most action but with the rising temps top water action will also heat up especially toward dusk.

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 and click below to visit our website and/or to order visitor guide and map.
