Small river/Stream fishing Report

2 posts in this topic

Fished some of the areas smaller waters this past weekend.

Spent Saturday on the Plover River in the boat. Fishing was tough, but they were there and quite a few species showed up. Caught LM and SM, Perch, Crappies, Gills, Rock Bass, and Northern. Fish were holding on wood/weed mix close to deeper water. Highlight was a northern that went after one of my hooked gills and managed to get hooked itself, quite exciting.

Live bait for the pans and crappies, most of the northern and LM on soft plastic jerkbaits or swimbaits in the weedbeds.

Spin fished Trout on some of the smaller streams along HWY 49 in Portage and Marathon county on Sunday for a couple hours. Fish weren't overly aggressive, often swatting at the baits. Managed a half dozen fish each between a friend and myself. Largest of which were a couple of 8"+ brookies with one around 10". Size 2 and 4 spinners on light tackle. Also got checked by the CO while we were out.

Trout fished Portage county two days ago. Ultralight spin tackle and live bait.

Managed some nice brookies, all from 8.5-12", and one brown about 13".
