I was wondering if anyone had any information on what is working on Lake Namakagon. We have a family reunion with lots of kids, so any info about crappies, walleyes, & northern would be great.

Thanks a lot

My fiance's uncle lives up there. The lake is one of the best pike lakes in that area of the state. They are everywhere in there (inside weededge, outside edge, in the weeds, out deep).

From what I understand there are very few walleyes, they are not a managed species in the lake?

I'm sure someone else can chime in with some specifics. Good luck fishing smile

Actually there are some walleye to be had, though not many big ones. And yes the pike are everywhere, I'd look for weeds that drop quickly to deeper water. Don't be afraid to go huge on the baits for them, the pike are tough to keep off the line when muskie fishing. They can't seem to resist a 9" Suick. Plus you might actually put a muskie in the boat doing so...

Tons of walleyes in Namekagon!! Along with the pike, as has been stated. Crappie populations are strong and bluegills are fairing well too. Actually, kind of a sleeper bass lake too. Not huge numbers, but some decent sized ones.

Walleyes.. Weed edges at first light and dusk. Slip bobbers and a leech. Hopefully a little wind blowing in there too.. During the day, breakline stuff, rigging with a leech or jigging on top of a good pod, if ya graph em. Lots of spots to fish, from the north lake down to garden.

Pike, these guys covered it good.. Just cast and cast some more in those weeds..

Bluegills, easiest thing would to be find some reed areas as there should be some up shallow yet for the kids to throw bobbers at.

Crappies, probably starting to suspend a bit over basin areas and could be tougher to catch. But, should be some along deep weedlines...

Good luck..

Thanks for the help!

We had good luck fishing, my godson caught 50 blue gill & 3 nice sized walleye - slip bobber w/a leech like JKH431 said.

Got a northern, 1 walleye, & on the very last cast of the weekend, a nice sized large mouth bass which was released.

Thanks again

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
