Gotcha, im used to fishing rivers open to fishing this time of year, thanks for the info
Flambeau River Ladysmith to Holcombe
I believe the river is closed for walleye and all gamefish until the first Saturday in May.
Wondering if anyone knows if by any chance the river is open?... looking to come up during the week next week and would like to get out walleye fishing. Bought a place up here last year but never got out on the river fishing. Any info would be great
Heading up to Flaters next week and wondering how the water level and fishing is up on the Flambeau and Chip above Joe's.
Floated Thornapple Dam to Flater's last Saturday. Smallbass fishing was slow, got about 5. No muskie and got one 30 inch pike on a topwater. Two gates part open on the dam, heavy river flow, and a lot of loose pieces of grass. Fouled the lure most every cast including topwaters. Beers were cold at Flater's so it was a good day.
Any info on water levels or types of baits that are working well this time of year. Gonna do a two day float from big bear to flambeau lodge this weekend.. Just curious if the fish were bitin on anything special. Only done mid summer floats on this river prior to this year. Any info that you would be willing to share would be much appreicated.
I've also had luck fishing the Chippewa south of Bruce. River Rd runs south off of Hwy 40. If you follow it far enough, there are a couple of spots you can fish from shore.
There are also several good spots to fish from shore downstream from where the Flambeau meets the Chippewa.
