Welcome to the Chippewa Flowage
The Fall Season on the Chippewa Flowage and area is where you want to be for fishing, fall color tour, a break from a busy schedule at home and work, a time with girlfriend/spouse/fishing buddy/a son/a daughter or just go "up north" for a long week end.
Fall is the wonder of color change in our forests and the migration of birds is a sight to enjoy. These are moments that must be experienced - - - join us on the Chippewa Flowage.
As the daylight time becomes shorter, we begin to sense a shift in wind and the approaching fronts from the West----the Loons, local Canadian Geese, our Whitetail deer Black Bear, summer birds, Red Squirrels, Chipmunks, and many other home creatures are already in a sense of urgency-prepare for the inevitable change in weather and cold conditions that will decade upon the Flowage and area in the months ahead.
Musky fishing has shifted to a pattern for lake water turn-over, very cold water, strong northwest winds, dropping weeds, a increasing lake level and unpredictable dice weather - - - anglers know how to deal with the elements and dream about the potential for a fish of a lifetime.
Crappies are on the wood structure, schooled up, around planted fish cribs, and are feeding----the "slab crappie" is yours for the taking. Walleye fishing has been terrific all summer on the Chippewa Flowage----anglers followed a pattern of weed development, near deep water drop offs, and a search and find/catch mode. The fall pattern will be similar except; go deeper, locate fish on the bottom structure, use larger live bait, fish mid lake deep water humps, and be patient on the set before the hook set.
Be somewhere this Fall Season----come join us on the Chippewa Flowage and area!!

Well....ice fishing season is finally here. There are not many people heading out yet, but there is some fishable ice out on the Flowage and Round. The ice depth varies from 2 inches in some spots and 5 inches in others. Make sure you if you go out you definitely dress warm as it has been a bit colder up here for this time of year, and be careful on the ice. When in doubt, err on the side of caution because there are some areas where it is not thick enough to fish through yet.
