Chippewa Flowage Fishing Report

Fishing Reports

Date: 2014-12-19


Walleye ice fishing has been ok. Most people fishing Walleye are either fishing Round Lake or Lost Land and Teal Lakes. Lately they have been fishing either with Walleye Suckers or Shiners.


Northern Pike have been somewhat active. The most of the action has been seen on the West Side of Chippewa Flowage. A lot of people fish Squaw Bay and some other back bay areas of the west side. Golden Shiners and smaller suckers seem to be the bait of choice. Personally I feel the Golden Shiners will get you a bit more action.


Crappie fishing has been steady. Crappie minnows with ice jigs and jigging raps have been popular. Try fishing in the Blueberry Flats, Moore's Bay, out in front of Menard's or in the Chief Narrows.


This week seems like it will be solidly in the 30s all week with a mix of cloudy days, light snow, and rain.


Christmas is just around the corner. I will be able to fill Christmas orders until probably the 21st of December. Beyond the 21st items may not make it in time for Christmas to your house. Also...if you buy a Musky Rod and Reel Combo or if you spend over 100 dollars in the store this Christmas season, you will get a 10 dollar gift certificate good for next year as a thank you. Also, I have heard reports that vary on ice conditions. Some people are saying in places like Musky Bay and Chief Lake that the ice is only 6 inches deep. Others have reported seeing some ice as thick as 10-12 inches. The ice is fishable but proceed with caution. They are holding off marking the trails for probably another week or so. If I don't hear from you before the holiday, I would like to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Wonderful New Year, and I look forward to seeing all of you in the spring for opener. I have plenty of new items that will be in the store to help you enhance your fishing trips next season.
