If you're fishing for bass, you won't catch them on Butternut, b.c the populations are very low and always have been as far as I know. However, I used to fish butternut quite a bit and as I learned the lake more and more, starting doing well on the walleyes (a lot are small , but you can still catch some 15+ inchers on the right day or right year). Talked to a northern wisconsin fish biologist who guided me on lake superior this fall who mentioned that Butternut has had very good walleye recruitment in the last couple years. Lots of perch here too (mostly 6-8 inchers). And lots of small muskies with some bigger ones mixed in as well.  not a lot of mid lake structure, so I found myself covering a lot of water before finding walleyes. Hope to make it up this winter to try this lake out again as it used to be one of my favorites!

There is a DNR boat ramp (Hoffmann Rocks) off of Cty B on the west side of the lake. You can also access off of Northern Pines Resort off of Lake Shore Drive.

I live about an hour and a half from this lake. I want to ice fish it this weekend if the ice is good. I looked at the cut off road boat landing and it looks like it’s on a river. How do you get on the lake from that access? I have never fished this lake and am dying to get on the ice if it’s safe. No ice is safe ice but if there’s at least 4 inches I am willing to try it. I travel light and have float suit and ice picks as precaution. If anybody knows the lake and wants to fish this weekend let me know tight lines.

Solid first week! Lots of walleyes stacked up between 5-12 feet around cribs. Had best action early in the morning before sun up and as the sun was setting. Also ran into a couple nice crappies over cribs. Overall, it was the best week of fishing we have enjoyed on Butternut!

Anyone else been on Butternut lately? Was out Saturday morning and caught 6 nice perch 9"+ and 2 small walleye. Should have gotten out earlier, bit was on we we got there then shut down once the rain started. Had 4 wheeler out there, only broke through top layer for about 20 yards. Had about 2 inches of frozen slush, 4 inches of water then about 5 inches of ice.  Have not checked conditions since rain and snow.
