Chippewa Flowage Fishing Report

Fishing Reports

Date: 2016-01-22


Walleye fishing has been awesome on the shallower rocks in the morning and the evening. During the day either fish deeper or around weed edges. These patterns are for Grindstone, Round, LCO, Lost Land, and Teal.


Pike have been very active near shallower cover.


Crappie fishing has been great in depths greater than 17 feet. Fish will bite all day.


It has been really cold the last week or two, but now we are starting to see temperatures warm up this weekend so it should be a beautiful weekend to get out and enjoy some ice fishing. Temps will no longer be in the negatives this week and we will see highs in the mid 30s and lows in the high teens. We may see some light snow on Monday.


This week's fishing report brought to you by Tom Boley's Guide Service. With the cold temps last week we saw some great ice getting made. Ice on the Chip is between 8 and 11 inches. There are a few small areas with slush where there is likely less ice. On Grindstone, Round and LCO the ice has been anywhere from 7 to 12 inches depending on location. Fourwheeler travel is great all over these larger lakes.
