Been up to URL once a year for the last 10 years but haven't been able to sneak away yet this season. Was wondering if u guys up there think next weekend(of the 28th) we would still be able to drive out there with a truck and wheelhouse? I read the forum almost daily and am so jelous of the awsome fishing oppurtunitys you guys have. I've looked at waskish extended forcast and it looks like highs in the 30s next week. Just worried about the lake being really sloppy after seeing those nasty pictures that were posted. thanks

Wiscony,

The roads took a beating this weekend. A lot will depend on the weather in regards to whether you'd be able to get out next weekend or not.

i wouldnt plan on pulling a wheel house out i pulled mine out on thursday and back in on friday and it took a pretty good beating till i got to the other side of the pressure ridge after that is was fine. im sure after the weekend the first part of the road is really beat up.

We have pretty low forecasted highs for the later part of next week. How much rain we get until then is the wild card. The ice out in the lake should be OK except for drain holes. The shoreline will be rough. I would not try to take a wheel house out there.

Thanks for the info guys. I'd hate to make the 7 hour trip and not be able to access. Looks like i'll have to just wait till next year to chase the big crappies. But reading Borch's report REALLY makes me want to go now. Well see. Thanks again for the posts guys and good luck.

That is the catch 22 with the red lake crappies now. Nobody wants to come up and look for them and take the chance until they hear a good report...but once they hear the good reports it is to late.

I would have loved to come up all winter long but with the cold winter we had i haven't been able to get away from work. Crappies or not, URL is my favorite place to get away to. We've always gone up ealier and its always a memorable trip. Just a way different world up there. When we have gone in the past, we search around and have always caught crappies. So for me, the reports are interesting but have never influenced my decision to go. Even if nobody was catching any,i still want to go just for the oppurtunity to be there. Its just fun to be away from crowds and to able to fish off by yourself and not be bothered. But unfortunelty for me, i can finally go, and it sounds like its to late.

wiscony,

Glad to hear you enjoyed my reports. I can understand the draw to the Waskish area. My wife and I always have a good time there whether we're hammering the slabs or not.

I'd guess that there's still time to get out. But like Kelly said the wheelhouse option on the lake is likely not there. Now getting out with the portables on a nice spring day with noone else around is very rewarding.

Good Luck!

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?
    • MikeG3Boat
      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
