The Croix/Danbury Wis.

5 posts in this topic

I am wondering about the fishing around this area,I have never fished the river north of the Hwy #48 bridge,and wondering if it is worth my time/trouble? I am talking about the open water season so any info over the next few months would be nice.I have both a canoe and a 14' jonboat so I can be on some skinny water if need be.

I have never fished that far upstream, only from Hwy 70 bridge north about 10 miles, but can tell you that whole river from headwaters all the way to Prescott is full of smallmouth. I understand the muskey fishing is pretty decent, ocassional northerns and walleye most anywhere.

Stop at the Log Cabin Store in Danbury for better info.

Thanx DonBo

My main focus is C&R on some smallies,I did stick a fat 17" last summer by the #48 bridge while wading,and just thought about hitting the river north of there this summer.

I have fished this stretch by Danbury a few times with limited success. Imho, the further north you go the fish are smaller due to the shallow water. We fish the area lakes for bigger fish.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.
