SuperiorBearHunting Adventures: I have been fishing this reservoir for over 30 years and have never seen, caught, or heard of anyone catching musky here. You would have better options with going to Paint Pond, Peavy Pond, or the Groveland Mine Ponds.
Ive caught plenty of big pike there over the past 10 years but have I never seen a musky. Talk to the guy at Michi-Aho resort on the paint river. He can provide you some info on area musky waters including the paint river
musky do exist..though fewer than the feeder body(lake michigamme to the north and peavy pond to the south(paint river aids the supply here)..i would say targeting them here would be tough..best options..where michigamme river enters the reservoir and the neck down area in the bay at the southwest boat launch area...possibly where the fence river enters on north shore..in all many better options for skis than this reservoir..the michigamme river from m-69 south to peavy pond often has many catchable fish..hell i have hit them when casting to the shore..they like sunning in quiet areas
So the Peavy pond is connected to the Michigamme Reservoir. Peavy pond has a good population of musky, yet I can find NOTHING online about the Michigamme Reservoir having musky in it nor anything about anyone catching one there. I'd love to take a day and try it out but I dont know if it's worth it or not. Any help on this topic? Has anyone caught musky in this reservoir?
Any help is appreciated!!!

Fishing was great this afternoon, fished from 1pm to 6pm. Between the 2 of us we had 50 flags, lots of small walleyes but managed to get 9 keepers, 15"-19". Was actually surprised that we only got 3 notherns, although I had a nice one on and caught a tooth half way up the hole. We had 8 doubles and 1 triple, made for a pretty exciting afternoon of fishing.
Can you drive on Michigamme? I have not tried fishing it before, but my dad and I are getting skunked left and right, so we need to try something new!
Thanks for the report big Bear.

Fished Thursday and Friday, action was very slow both days. Thursday mainly fished for walleye and northern. Walleyes were biting very light, ended up with about 10-12 flags, 5 small walleyes and 1 little northern, fished in 4-12fow. Friday we fished for crappies and bluegills for about 4-5hrs, marked some fish, but wouldn't hit anything, wigglers, waxies, crappie minnows, small jiggin raps, or ultralite rippn raps. Anything we seemed to throw at them, didn't interest them. Had tip ups out as well with no flags.
