Just returned from 2 days trout fishing in the UP. Another terrible trip. That makes 3 in the last 2 yrs. I was born in this area so I know the streams. I'm giving up on fishing this state. What a waste of time and hard earned money.
U.P. trout fishing
I used to have really good luck on the Escanaba River. Crazy caddis hatches in the early evenings and plenty of rising wild browns. Anyone fishing that area? Have not been back in years but might try his season.
New to trout fishing. Made my first trip up to the UP on Monday and explored the middle branch of the Ontonagon with my wife. Wading wasn't great downstream from Watersmeet: one spot very mucky bottom and next with lots of current and deep. Drove up to Agate Falls and fished downstream for a bit. Just beautiful setting! Wish I had more time. Definitely want to return and explore the area some more. My lake house is near Minocqua. Any other rivers/streams that I should explore in the Western UP (DMs welcome)? Does anyone know if one can access middle branch downstream from Agate Falls by car and then hiking down to the river? thanks
You cant take 3 trips and judge the whole state. That is not rational . As for me, I have been on Bago 5 times and still not one walleye. I know they are there but the bite has been tough. So many reasons they dont bite .
Thanks Sgt Rock for your sarcastic comments. Just another Lakelink troll.
I think wooly worm is doing a commendable job giving the impression that da UP is fishless and not worth going to. I completely agree with him, no fish up there. Do not waste your money and time. Stay in Wisconsin. It’s great having such honest fishing reports so we can focus our attention elsewhere. SR
If you could please tell us more, have the holes silted over or the streams widened? What do you think its causing the poor fishing? Increased pressure, lack of habitat?
Are you fishing the same spots every year? Are they stocked fish or natural?
