Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for August 4, 2016

1 post in this topic

Intermittent rain, followed by heat and humidity, was the story for much of the state this week. While changes in temperature and moisture brought about a slight drop in angling pressure, it may have given the mosquito population a large upper hand once again. Given the off and on rains over the past two months, many water bodies in the Northern region of the state remain at above average levels and many drainage lakes are also filled. Anglers that were out in the Northwoods reported improving action for largemouth and smallmouth bass, with smallmouth remaining the more elusive of the two. Panfish success in the Upper Chippewa Basin continues to improve in consistency and decent catches of perch, bluegill and crappie were reported. While warming temperatures may have slowed the walleye bite, some fish were being found over the deeper mud flats and around deep rock bars. Musky remain unpredictable, with some days offering numerous follows and hits and others showing little activity at all. Over on the waters of the Flambeau, musky, crappie and bluegill have been the primary targets. Water levels there are also still a bit above average and though more rain was predicted for Thursday, the weekend looks like clear skies. Anglers in Oneida County are also reporting successful musky and bass action.
