Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for October 27, 2016

1 post in this topic

Fall colors are now past peak over most of northern and central Wisconsin, with the exception of Door and a few other central counties that are still reporting peak color, along with much of the southeastern part of the state according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Fall Color Report (exit DNR). Even in the southeast, though, heavy rain earlier this week was reported to have brought down many leaves.Colors were still peak this week at Whitefish Dunes State Park from the observation platform at "old Baldy."Photo Credit: Thomas Jordan The change to wet and cooler weather resulted in some challenging fishing conditions on Northwoods lakes. Water temperatures have dropped into the low 50s on most lakes. Musky have still been the main species of interest and they have been providing some fairly consistent action, with most anglers dragging suckers around. Most of the musky landed have been in the 34- to 42-inch size, but a few up to 47 inches have also been reported. There has been just a light amount of pressure for walleye and panfish, with walleye success continuing to be quite erratic. Fishing pressure was very low again in Door County with most anglers fishing on the Green Bay side of the peninsula. The few anglers fishing out on Lake Michigan were doing very well trolling for both chinook and rainbow trout. Yellow perch fishing continues to be very popular in the Sturgeon Bay Area and smallmouth bass fishing was excellent this week with many anglers reporting catching a lot of bass that were all fairly large.
