Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

Ashland County Fishing Report

July 31, 2018

Anglers All, Located at 2803 E. Lake Shore Drive (U.S. Highway 2) in Ashland, is a full-service tackle and fly shop offering a huge selection of baits and tackle for year round fishing. For the most complete and up-to-date fishing report, just give them a call at 715/682-5754, and they will gladly keep you informed! Carolyn from Anglers All reports: Fishing on the Bay is really good right now and the report remains the same as last week. The water in the Bay has cleared up! Walleye anglers are trolling over the shallow weed-beds using crawler harnesses or stick-baits. Fishing could be very productive working the mud lines that you find! Small Mouth fishing continues to be very good. Small Mouth have scattered throughout the Bay and could relate to any type of structure in the Bay. Anglers have been successful using sucker minnows and also larger plastics. Trolling has been excellent with reports from Long Island all the way to Outer Island and all points in-between. Most Trollers are using spoons or spin-n-glos run off of down riggers, dipsy divers or lead core! Fishing is good right now!!!

River Rock Inn & Bait Shop, Located at 1200 W. Lake Shore Drive (U.S. Highway 2), in Ashland where you can stop in and see their wide variety of live bait, fishing tackle, gear, accessories, fresh and smoked fish from Lake Superior, local meat sticks, and microbrews, and much more. Call them at 715/682-3232 for the most current fishing report. Scott Bretting from River Rock reports.....The water clarity has now cleared up and Bass fishing is really good with anglers having good success using sucker minnows.  Bass have been very active in broad water spectrum from 2 ft to 14 ft of water. Walleye trolling is good right now. The Lake Trout bite is fantastic in the flats and among the Islands. The water temps are warming up and that's why the fish are spreading out. Mid-summer fishing patterns are continuing now and you may have to change your baits mid-day or you may have to change locations. Beware of the many commercial nets out there by the tip of Long Island. There are reports of anglers having success catching Walleye in the Bay using crawler harnesses.  There have been a lot of boats out trolling and doing really good in the Flats and the South Channel catching their limit. Shore fishing is good from the docks casting for Rock Bass and Northerns and in the evenings catching Walleyes using a variety of bait including dare devils, rapalas, and still soaking smelt and using crawlers. Some landings on the Inlands are closed after the storm damage. The Annual North Wisconsin Rod & Gun Club Kids fishing Party for kids 13 and under, will be Saturday, August 4th.
