Late report. Went out on July 6th. Found the lake to be very weedy and the water high. Fished for 4 hours with only one large bluegill to show for it. This was only my second time fishing the lake. We launched from the north side of the spillway on French Island. The south side was closed due to high water. I did receive a $35 fine for not registering to launch. I paid the fine to the town of Campbell and to my surprise they sent me a launch sticker good for the rest of the year. I thought that was very nice of them. Hope to go back once the water and air temperature drop a bit.
@corn.... a post below yours sounds like a pretty good spot...??

Hello, wantes to take my little family on some catfishing, any shore for good ole catfish in lake onalaska? Thanks
Topwater bite has been a lot of fun lately on the lake! Find weed edges and you'll find fish.
The word is "milting".
Took the boat out after work Monday with a couple of friends. Gill bite was on fire with a glob of crawler and bobber. Caught and released numerous female gills on the verge of spawning. Male gills were milkin' when you were unhooking them. Caught 3 pike. Biggest was 34" and around 11 lbs. Ended up keeping 35 gills, 1 perch, and 1 pike between the three of us.
1 17" Largemouth- Caught and released with no photo taken
66° - 70° F
71° - 75° F
More fun on Lake Onalaska this evening. Caught about 20 pie plate gills in shallow water. I don't believe they have started spawning yet but it won't be long. Red worms on a plain book worked best for me.
