Hello friends, so I'm headed to the Beautiful Willow flowage for a full week of rustic camping! Tuesday morning me and two close friends in a 14 aluminum puddle jumper with a 20 horse merc. I have navionics on my phone but don't expect it to load real time up there. So I expect travel to be slow. We will be slip bobbering and pitching jigs. Not too confident on locations to find fish but we will surely put in the hours and give it our best shot. I'm wondering if anyone has any campsite recommendations and any tips in general! Please send me a p.m. If you have time. I will be happy to share any information on lake Winnebago if I can help someone.

Had a pretty good day with my friend Steve and Doug. Had to work for them and had a few nice runs. All but one fish was caught on a half crawler's. Mayflies were still present but I think are finally done.   In case someone might be interested I had a cancellation tomorrow and will give a $50 discount. Give me a holler

Is it possible to run Lindy rigs or worm harnesses on the Willow? I was there last week and I was highly unsucessful using these, got snagged every time.  Any tips for using bottom bouncing type rigs?

I did manage to catch five 'eyes on jiggs, but action was slow.

August tends to be very good for walleyes and perch. Should be a y month.

Hard to believe it's the 3rd of July and we're still battling an ugly mayflie hatch. It was tough going this morning for keeper walleyes but we managed a few. We also had quite a few quality perch up to 13". I really couldn't believe we caught anything as packed full of mayflies as they were. Look out when the mayflies are finally gone I think it's going to be an incredible bite!!

Well here is my report from the Willow. Not much. One 19" walleye one 13" perch and three snake Pike. Fished from 7am till 730pm. Fished all over with many different baits. Thanks to all who help me try to locate some fish. All in all it was a fun day trip on this beautiful flowage!

My experience on the willow is limited compared to many here...my friends and I camp once a year there.  I think it's going on 6-8 yrs now.  Great campsites, beautiful wildlife and a true up north feel.  

It takes time to master the willow, but the walleye action seems decent.  There have been some years I swore this place off, then the next year we do okay.  In middle summer we'll jig for walleyes and do alright.  We don't slay them by any means, but enough to have fun and keep the hope alive.  

There is a nice bar/restaurant on the lake too.  It's a good time all in all.
