Chippewa Flowage Fishing Report

04/26/2016


Spring crappie fishing is still great on a variety of lakes in the Hayward area. Water temperatures have cooled significantly the past few days. Most lakes are in the upper 40's or low 50's. A few crappies are still up in the wood however most are staging just outside of the spawning bays. Depths of 10-20 feet is ideal for staging fish. If you want some spring crappie pointers head on over to my "Pulse" tab on this website and read an article I wrote highlighting spring crappies. Here is a short video I shot last week discussing the effectiveness of a cane pole. As I sat there catching fish on a 10$ rod I had to laugh at the fact there was at least 2000$ of rod/reel combos in my rod locker. Everything has a time and place! I will begin sending out posts via email for those of you who signed up for fishing reports. If you would like to receive reports go to my home page and fill out the email address in the bottom right corner! Thanks and looking forward to another excellent season on the water!
