Chippewa Flowage Fishng Reports by
Walleye fishing is still solid with regard to numbers but the size is still small. People have been using Crawlers and Minnows for live bait. Trolling Flicker Shads during the hotter times of the day has also proven effective. They are kind of in transition right now between summer and fall patterns so you may have to utilize your electronics a bit to find where the fish are moving.
Musky fishing has been decent. 6 fish were caught yesterday morning in the LCFRA Musky Hunt. The action has been evenly split on surface and subsurface. The sucker bite is getting better at the moment and fall trolling patterns will soon be here.
The pike bite is still pretty good in the weeds on Tinseltails and Spoons. Focus your fishing attention on the West Side Bays. Don’t forget to keep the pike you catch and turn them in to a resort to get your raffle tickets!
Crappie have been a little finicky but several fishermen reported that fishing deeper water and holes for them with Rapala Jigging Raps or similar style jigging baits with waxworms has been working very well.
Fall Color Report: This is the first week we have been starting to see a minimal amount of color. It is predominantly still green but we are starting to see patches of color here and there. Throughout the week we will be seeing highs ranging from the high 60s to mid 70s. Lows will range from mid 40s to low 50s at night. Expect some light rain on Tuesday.
The weather this week looks to be fairly pleasant.
