Walleye are still a bit slow....most likely as a result of the large amount of precipitation and the increased surface temperature of the water. A few folks on Round Lake are reporting action much deeper than usual on the Walleyes so it would probably be a good idea on the Chippewa Flowage to do the same. Try deeper and cooler areas of the lake. If you know where a natural spring is where there is some cooler water down deep or deep holes in the river channels...they may be worth stopping at and giving it a go to see if you can coax them to hit.
The later in the summer we get the closer we get to Creeper season. While the Muskies are not extra aggressive, there are some Muskies still being caught despite the warmer water temperatures. Start using Creepers when the water is flat and ideal for use. Hawg Wobblers, Super Top Raiders, Pacemakers, and Globes have all produced action as of late in addition to the Creepers.
Not much action have been reported on Pike Fishing other than catching smaller snakes here and there. Some folks this week have chosen to use live bait as opposed to artificial and have had a little more success than those using artificial baits.
Crappie action has remained good despite warmer water temps. The most effective bait lately has been Mini-Mites tipped with Gulp! Crappie Nibbles and of course live Crappie minnows. Fish the bogs and deeper cribs for the Crappies this week.
Bass have been unusually slow. Smallmouth have been more prevalent than the Largemouth. Smallies can be found using a nightcrawler on the cribs, or fishing stumpy and rocky areas with spinnerbaits, frogs, and smaller top water baits. No action has been reported on the Largemouth this week. They seem to be non-existent as of late.
This week looks like it will be a wet one. The forecast suggests rain Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday with Sunny Skies on Monday. Temperatures will remain pretty constant with highs in the low 80s and lows in the high 50s.
