The guy that lived just east of the dam many years ago is a good freind of mine. His name is Don Robinson, he used to work for the Northern States Power Company and he regulated the flow of water over the dam. He also was reponsible for maintaining the island campsites and the Lake Chippewa Campgrounds. They rewarded him for his loyalty by offering the campgrounds to him for very lttle money. He has since moved from the dam to a house down the river near Ojibwa, and he and his daughters now own and operate the campgrounds. Don is semi-retired now you can catch him most days at the lodge. His daughters Jill and Kathy, and their husbands mostly run the place now. Stop by and say hello they are great people and the campgrounds are a great place to bring a family.

Anyone know much about fishing below the Winter Dam. Last time I did it was a few years ago. It wasn't a fish refuge then. Maybe it is now. Got a nice mess of walleyes and bluegills. Also, hooked a monster muskie while reeling in a walleye. This one was truly a beast. We saw him roll and got a good look. We guessed he was maybe a 60 pounder. Talked to a kid who came down there to fish. He was fishing a sucker bait and using a balloon for a bobber. Asked him If he'd ever seen any big muskies down below the dam and he said that there was a 60 pounder there that lots of people hook but never land. That thing was big.

My question is this. Does anyone know who that guy is that lived in that house on top of the dam? He seemed to be quite an "eccentric" dude.

Fishing on the flowage is still rockin! We've been limiting out nightly for about a week. Fishing in the evenings, shadraps along shallow weed lines. For daily updates and pics, check out:

Heading up to the Big Chip July 28th for a week at Timberlake Lodge. This will be about the 10th year going. As always, looking for the Big Muskie or actually any Muskie. In recent years have had several follows, but thats about it. Any info for Chief Lake or the West side would be great. I still have my husband beat 2 to 0 for landing Muskies and I guess I am feeling sorry for him (yeh right!). Thanks for any advise!

Thanks for the info- I guess I will start doing my rain dancing now! I always thought that when the water is lower the east side is less affected. The fish will stay in shallow water because of the dark stained water. But I've been up there years when the water has been very very low and the fish seem to move early into there fall locations. Either way low water sucks!!!! I'll be up on the 28th and looking for big ones-can't wait.

See ya at Sysko's, Brett Tounge Out

The reason for the draw down was low water in the river. I am asuming it will be a gradual draw down. Will the east side of the lake be more affected than the west?
