Our Chequamegon Bay Fishing Map, Just for You!
Summer is the most popular time of the year for fishing in the Bay. The Summer fishing season really begins in June, but earlier in May is also a popular time. As the winter ice finally dissipates, fishermen come to the Bay for good hauls of Walleye and Northern Pike. Keep in mind that, per regulations, fishing is strictly catch and release until June. Make sure you check the official regulations for the exact date. May is also a popular time for trolling trout and salmon.
When June arrives, the water gets warmer. You are allowed to catch small-mouth bass, but are limited to one that is at least 22 inches long. The summer heat also brings in plenty of Perch!
Finally, August brings the intense heat. Most trout and salmon are deep in the water, so fishermen bring downriggers during this time. Walleye trolling is also quite popular in Chequamegon Bay during this time. When September arrives and the waters begin to cool once more, the area sees an influx of Brown Trout, Chinook, and even Rainbow Trout.
Winter Ice Fishin’
Now if you can’t make time for a vacation during the summer, don’t worry! There’s also plenty of popular ice fishing in the Bay, beginning in December. Depending on the amount of ice, you may find yourself with an abundance of shallow water trout.
In January, the Bay becomes a prime hub for deep water ice bobbing. Because of the Wisconsin weather, expect the ice fishing to remain a booming activity until about March, when the ice begins to thaw and the weather heats up, preparing for the Summer fishing season once again.
