Still ice in the bay? Trying to time the smelt run and just trying to see what the bay looks like in the Ashland area.
Chequamegon Bay, Ashland County
Just curious if any one knows if there is any fish stocking happening around the bay area? Last week over by algoma kewaunee area on lake Michigan there were 6400 steelhead stocked, it would be nice to hear about something like that in the Ashland area as well!

Early Steel Head Season on the Tributary Streams, opens on Saturday, March 25th. The Streams are open up to the 1st barrier.
Be careful around the ore dock and break walls. The ice is less then 2 inches thick approx 40 yards from structure. Ten inch difference within 3 yards. A man just died trying to rescue his dog around that area. Condolences to his family and may he Rest In Peace.

There were reports that Anglers were still catching fish on the Ashland side of the Bay. Anglers were catching Perch, Trout, Salmon and more. There are pressure cracks to be aware of. The ice conditions are changing daily and even hourly in areas so it is extremely important to call the local bait shops before venturing out!!!!!!!! Smelt season is around the corner, as soon as the ice goes out of the Bay (which is often the second week in April) so get your nets and seines and waders ready for a great upcoming smelt season. Call the Bait Shops, Anglers All at 715-682-5754 or River Rock, 715-682-3232 before venturing out!!!!
