Ashland County Fishing Report

January 21, 2021

River Rock Inn & Bait Shop, 1200 West Lake Shore Drive, Ashland WI 54806. 715-682-3232. Scott Bretting from River Rock reports:  There are cold temps in the forecast the next few days which will make more ice. We have had rain this past week which knocked down the surface snow. At this time there is no snow on the ice on Chequamegon Bay. Fishing has been really great with a lot of activity. Anglers are catching a mixed bag of fish including a few Sturgeon, which is exciting. But in order to keep a Sturgeon it has to be 60 inches in size and you have to have a Sturgeon license. On the Ashland side of the Bay there is 8-10 inches of ice. Between the Oredock and the Light House there is 8-10 inches and they are catching White Fish, Browns and some Smelt. Stay clear of the Light House as there is a current there. At Second Landing, Anglers are catching Walleyes, White fish, Perch and nice size Northern’s. Beware of a pressure crack North of the Break Wall. On the Washburn side of the Bay, there is 6plus inches of walkable ice off of Thompsons West End Park. Use caution at the The S-Curve/Bono Creek area near the mouth of Bono Creek where there is thinner ice with 4 inches at the approach and thicker ice with 6 inches south toward Ashland. they are catching White fish, Splake, Browns, Perch and Walley. The Washburn Coal Dock has very thin spots of ice. However, as we get more cold temperatures at night that will change fast and the ice will thicken. We are NOT recommending the Washburn Coal Dock until we get thicker ice there. Beyond Houghton Point, Onion River, Sioux River and Bodin's is open water!! Call us at River Rock for an update before venturing out! Anglers are ice fishing the smaller lakes and catching Pan Fish, some nice size Crappies, and Walleye. Always remember to bring your ice bar and check your way and always use good ice safety protocol. No Ice is Safe Ice!!!  Beware of the fresh snow covering the ice!

Anglers All, 2803 East Lake Shore Drive, Ashland WI 54806. 715-682-5754.
Carolyn at Anglers All reports: The Ashland side of the Bay has up to 9-inches of ice  in some places. Cold temps are in the forecast which will help ice conditions but please call ahead for an ice update. As you get toward the channel drop offs there is less ice. There are some people taking machines out, however, it is strongly advised to check your way with an ice bar before venturing out. Please use caution, especially on the Washburn side of the Bay where there is less ice with 2 to 6 inches. They are catching a mixed bag of fish on the Ashland side with reports of Herring, White Fish, Perch, Northerns, Splake, Browns, and Walleye. Anglers are going as far as Houghton Point. There are reports that Inland Lakes to the South and West of Ashland are in good shape right now. Always check your way and call ahead for an ice condition report.
