Fished the west side from 8/10-8/12. Targeted walleye and caught 32 eyes. Biggest was 22", kept 5 in the 15"-20" slot. Lots of eyes in the 13"-14.5" range. Fished weeds beds and bars in 3'-9' of water. Only caught walleye in 2 spots out of my typical 8 spots that hold fish. Also only caught them 1/2 hour after sunrise and 45 minutes before sunset. Used 1/8 ounce jig with twister tail. Also caught about 10 bass, 6 crappie and only 2 Pike.
How far can a decent size boat make it up the west fork Chippewa river past musky tale? Can you make it to moose lake dam or no?

Fished 8/4-8/9 mostly on Chief lake.
Crappies in shallow heavy weed edges (6-10') from small to 10" - average 8-9". Bobber on small jig and Gulp minnows 1" or crappie skirts. Pink and white seem to be the big hitters. Tons of gills and many large.
Tried for walleye on wobble slip bobber and plastic leeches and ended up getting large and smallies. 1lb to 4 lbs on same heavy weed edge in deep edges. Bass also on same rig but black and blue sparkle plastic worms.
Northens very slow this year even trying for them.

Fishing has been a little tough lately but still managed a decent amount of crappies and gills. Bonus musky to boot!
Fishing cribs and deep structure produced the panfish. Walleye bite has been a little tough but still using slip Bobbers and leeches and slowly switching over to Crawlers.
Lake level is down about 8in or so. Water temperatures are hovering about 75 degrees. Plenty of feed in the lake at this point, which can make fishing a little bit tough. One just has to jump from spot to spot looking for the active fish.
Good luck, be safe and we'll see you on the lake!

Spent 2 hrs out 9am to 11am fished 4 to 8 ft water around islands out from Cnty cc bridge. Caught 12 bluegills, 2 small mouth, 1 crappie...
Try the cribs out in front of the old Timberlake lodge
At Pat's, been working the shallow weeds and only finding very small perch and bluegill. Going to start working steep Transitions and deep-water humps. Any other recommendations for good panfish?
Been voting for yrs, nice try though
Be greatful you can troll at all. Would rather troll for walleye on round or lco anyway. People need to check your in box on messenger.
All this complaining and yet none of you i bet go to the spring hearings. That's America i guess
