Ash River area in August?

10 posts in this topic


Ode.The Ash River area in August is an excellent choice. It is close to Namakan witch will Provide good walleye action. The fish will be on the deep reefs at that time of the year. It is a bit of a boat ride to some of the better fishing spots but its still closer than the west end of Kabby. Keep watching this site as the year goes on and you should pick up some good tips.

Hello fisherpeople,
My wife and I are planning on coming up to Kab sometime in August and we want to rent a cabin in the Ash river area. Any suggestions and would mid to late August be good for walleyes? Any help would be greatly appreciated. We usually stay at Park Point on the west end of Kab, but want to try something different this time.

Ode, If you haven't booked a place yet, check out the site www.ashriver.com and it will give you the resorts on the trail. Yes the walleyes should be active on the reefs that time of year. It's also a great time for smallies if you haven't gotten into that. One fightin fish and lots of fun. Good Luck fishkab

The Ash River is a great place to stay as far as central access to both Kab and Nam. A good place to check out is Ashkanam The lodge is newly remodeled and they were planning on remodeling some of the cabins over this Winter. The Frontier Resort is also an option, the cabins are pretty rustic, but the people are extremely friendly. The Ash Trail Lodge also looks nice, but it is at the end of the Trail, so it takes longer to get to by boat because of the long no wake zone.

I can't really comment on the Walleyes in August, it definitely seems to slow down that time of year, but that is my husband's department!

id suggest the frontier. the owner of the ashkanam is not very friendly and treats customers like crap. i know this from personal exprience. the frontier was very friendly during our stay and closer to the mouth of namakan.

It can be a timing issue, but I have had real good success trolling cranks for walleye in the Ash river.
Make sure you stop in on your way and get a good heads up from Phil at the Gateway store!!!

Thanks for all the people who responded. It is wonderful to have people out there that you can ask a question to and get an honest answer. We will be up there during the week of Aug. 23-Sept.1. I can't wait, it is such a nice place. If anybody will be up there during that time frame??? Let me know and we can hook up, it would be great to meet some of the people from this site.
Thanks again,Ode

Jim W,
Are you from the Kab area? I have fished Namakan before, but it was up from Crane Lake and don't really know the west end of Namakan. I may have to call on some of the good people from this site when the time gets closer.
Thanks to all who have responded
