Any Crow Lake info out there as I am very excited too!!! We got dumped on here on the Range and the lakes do have some slush now. Hope they didn't get too much on the trout lakes up there. Muskie Bay or bust!!!!

Crow is froze over and with temps below -20C everyday for the last week I am sure it is getting close. The wind kept most of the snow off of crow so I am not sure if slush will be a problem. I have to leave for s.ontario soon so I won't know what the conditions are and the owners of Muskie Bay had to leave for the week due to a death in the family. They will be back early next week I believe. Then I would call them and get a report, they should have a parking lot and road to the main lake by then.

This will be my first trout opener in Sioux Narrows and I can't wait!! Any big drifts on the lake this year like last year? Was up on WFB in February 08 and there were some up to 6 ft. They can really give the body and equipment a beating on the longer snowmobile trips.

Where are you staying at Jacob?

It is hard to tell what the conditions will be the first of the year. Slush is popping up on the lakes in the are, but the temps have been very cold, so maybe it will be healed up by then. Snow varied alot in the area, some places had alot more than others.

I'll be staying in a bunkhouse at a cabin in Snake Bay and heading out from there on day/night trips.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
