Lake Owen, Bayfield County
Used to fly fish for gills there , only took 10 . Stopped account all the worm dunkers parking over the beds .
find weeds you will find plenty of small gills and perch. please be conservative with your catch. the old 25 limit is a joke and is ruining the lakes up here. take what you need for a meal but there is no need to fill the freezer.
From past years experience._..Find weeds you could find Bluegill , Perch crappie. I fish all over the lake when there.
Will be coming up in about a week. Wondering if anyone has a recent fishing report and how things are going. Mainly target panfish. Thanks
Thank you for the information. I have been using that launch for a long time as well. This stinks ! That launch was used by guests to the condos , Lake Owen Resort ,and local fishermen
To quote the official announcement dated May 20, 2019: "As of this writing, LOA has CLOSED Metro’s Landing to all boat launch traffic. If you customarily use that landing to launch boats, we now request that you use the USFS public landing at the northwest end of the lake instead.
Why have we done this? Because the threat of invasive species like zebra mussels, Eurasian watermilfoil, and spiny water fleas is serious enough that LOA is attempting to divert all launch traffic to the north end landings, where our inspectors can certify that boats being launched are indeed free of AIS. We trust you agree that maintaining the health of Lake Owen is worth a little extra inconvenience on your part. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!" Board of Directors, Lake Owen Association
Are the " invasive " species humans perhaps ?
The boat landing at the South end is closed permanently thanks to the Lake Owen association.???? This is due in part to their efforts to try and control any invasive species in entering the Lake there are decontamination sites in Drummond Wisconsin that you are supposed to use now before entering Lake Owen at any of the public boat landings. Very ridiculous as I have used that boat landing for 20 years and live on Lake. If they want to be so concerned about invasive species in my opinion it would be best to go watch the hundreds of boats that come in-and-out of the Lake at the 2 lakes campground boat launch.
