FISH EAGLE RIVER
WEEKLY FISHING REPORT
Fishing activity gains momentum with sights set towards spring. Anglers can start to down size equipment and focus on their next big catch in the northwoods. For more details on where and how to fish the World’s Largest Chain of Lakes and other inland lakes, read the fishing report below.
Bluegills: These fish are being found in the weeds using small jigs tipped with waxies, spikes or tipped with plastic.
Perch: You can find these on the deep weed edges and muddy bottoms feeding on minnows and bugs. Be sure to match the bait to the area you’re fishing for success.
Crappie: We are finding a few up in the shallow weeds, but the majority are still in the deeper water.
Reminder: All ice fishing shelters must be removed from the ice daily and when not in use on inland waters north of Highway 64 by March 19 and Wisconsin-Michigan boundary waters by March 15.
Information for this week’s fishing report was provided by Colin Crawford from Colin Crawford’s Guide Service.

FALL FISHING AND HUNTING IS SECOND TO NONE
While the anticipation of Opening Day lures thousands onto Eagle River area lakes at the beginning of May, every angler knows it’s not until fall when the bites come one after another. Fall in Eagle River is also time for another kind of tradition – hunting.Preparing for a long winter of inactivity, trophy fish like musky, walleye and bass are more than willing to see what bait’s on the end of your line in October and November.
SPRING IS IN THE AIR
The calendar might say that spring officially starts next week in Wisconsin. Talk to any avid fisherman, however, and you’ll be told it’s the first Saturday in May – Opening Day.
