SOME OF US WANT TO FISH BLUEWATER NEXT TO WABANA. WONDERING IF ANYBODY COULD GIVE US SOME INSITE ON THAT LAKE. WITH A STOCKED LAKE LIKE THAT, DO YOU CATCH GOOD SIZE FISH? WHAT SEEMS TO WORK BEST?

THANKS FOR THE INFO,

SHANE

bluewater s good for trout and has some nice smallies in it as well.

trouble is, I don't know how you'd get on it in the winter. we come up through the channel during the summer, but since the camp and residents had the road on the north side moved, unless you know someone on the lake, it's not gonna be easy to get access in the winter

i fish bluewater alot you can get in thru the bluewater bible camp if your nice, i catch some nice lakers out there a 20lber that i released a few years ago lots of 10lb class fish and lots of 2 to 3lbers to smoke or eat, however the action seems to die off after the first few weeks of trout opener then you just get lots of lookers and some that wont follow a bait at all, and i hardly use anything on bluewater but a white tube.....

how deep is this channel? i thought snowmobile up to bluewater from wabana. but that may not be a good idea considering the snowfall and lack of ice. may be we will try via the camp.

thanks for the info.

Just snowmobile up from Wabana. If you park in the boat landing off the forestry road you can get through via Wakeman Bay and to the channel in about 5-10 minutes tops (you don't have to zig-zag around the rock piles in the winter). How deep is the channel? I've fished Wabana in June and August and shot over to Bluewater 'cuz my daughter likes swimming there. The channel's never been more than a foot and a half deep. There is that overhead bridge thing but I don't think there's so much snow as to block it off and, after the last two weeks temps, I don't think ice depth is a problem either. Just my $0.02.

In the past the bible camp has allowed poeple through because the camp was closed. This year the camp is open and in use. Just worked there last week on a well problem. There was no sign of activity on the lake as far as I could see at the time. Captainshane I think Raider4ever ment the south landing on wabana. Becareful cause the landing has a steep hill exiting and this hill can be extremely icy. There is also a river that exist near the landing and the channel in the middle can stay open at times. Stay closer to shore and follow the other traffic onto the main lake and you will be fine.

are there any crappies on this chain. A frind of mine has a cabin up there and I loved the p[lace. Right on the south bay of wabana, by bluewater entrance. How cool is that lake. it really is like an ocean out there. Have been pretty much skunked for the year and hoping on getting some nice craps. Any out there? Before I drive two hours, would like to know what your opinions are of the area crappies, and then lake trout. really want to do that once in my life. I am walking unless you feel like there is plety of hard ground for a 2 by drive.

      Kitchen staff is a big issue. The cook got fired recently but overall it’s owned/managed by not the brightest people. Same owners at moosebirds. I think they’re in over their heads. They had good pizza imo until they switched to the stupid wood fire pizza oven and created their own crappy crust recipe. They’ve been changing menus weekly and jacking prices-I’m sure some of that is reflecting the increased cost of groceries but not impressed at all lately. I know someone who works there and the help isn’t very happy either. Wolf bay is where it’s at lol.

      Thank you for the help Muskies. I will check those places out...

      August bite is pretty good.

      BigV..... how things can change in a day. I fished from 8:15 until 11:45 this morning when I caught walleye #50. Probably the best morning ive ever had on the lake. Lindy rig and half crawler was the method. This morning when you graphed those pods of fish they bit.  As far as the lake in July and August? Personally August is my favorite month. Typically when you locate fish they bite. Wind blown areas holding perch minnows is what I concentrate on. Quite often it's sand pockets for me. That was the key today as the fish were coughing up perch minnows. Fishing always snaps back into shape when they get off the bugs. Soon the basin will be alive with the trollers. I really like the leadcore bite. Usually the quality of the fish caught is quite good. I'll be fishing walleyes the rest of the week hopefully continuing to report an improved bite.
    • BigVTim
      Same! It’s been terrible for me. I always blame myself but I feel like rumor around the lake is that it isn’t worth fishing for walleyes after June or before September. I hope that’s not the case and it is just me lacking knowledge.

      Excellent report Muskies!  Thank you!  Also really appreciate the pictures that you include in your posts.  We are looking forward to being on the lake boat camping in 16 days.

      Fished Whitefish both Sunday and Monday from about 6AM until 10AM each day. Used only artificial lures.  Trolled  weed edges some of the time with Shad Raps #8 size, and then a little deeper with the #9 size Flicker Minnow.  Only caught one 29 inch Northern trolling.  Spent about 1/2 of the time casting  a jig and soft plastic into about 12 ft to 18 ft  where there were decent, but not great weeds.  Caught  several small Northerns plus 2 more that were 27" and 28".   The bonus was a 17.5" Largemouth.  No Walleyes either day.   Monday had several "bite offs" on the soft plastics.  That is kinda the problem with using them where there are Pike.

      Timber Bay Lodge is a good spot, I always go there when I go to birch lake.
