Ice is about 90% out....the stuff that is left is very thin.

Just a report from people that are up there.

Was just wondering how the ice situation is on the North part of the flowage up around Musky Bay? If anyone could let me know that would be great. Thanks

Coming up on friday with the hope that springs eternal every year on the Chip. Any clues as to patterns that should be in play given the late ice out. Would shallow bars or flats be the ticket or what??? Looking for some clues.

Thanks

bad news: the chippewa flowage is not completely open, and i for one doubt it will be by opener.

good news: the chippewa flowage has less ice than many of the surrounding lakes and is definitely fishable even right now. lots of open water. have some pics at my site if yer interested.

many are planning to drop their boats in tomorrow as the temps are supposed to continue rising.

the attached pic is looking west from CC. similar view looking east.

I just talked to a resort owner that told me the area east of Hermann's Landing is open, but there is still ice bunched up in narrows, bays, and pockets formed by islands, and shorelines. She told my that the ice is looking pretty "slushy", so sunny skies, and a fore casted warm rain on Thursday should clear most if not all of the ice off by Saturday.

Harley I cant say for sure if Ice is out on the chip but Teal, LLL, Round, Grindstone, LCO, Stone, Sand.... all are locked solid. That leads me to belive that the Chipp is not open.

Hello all,

I've recently purchased property near Couderay which is basically a few miles directly south of the south-west portion of the lake. Part of my motivation was to fish the Chip. I'm looking for some insight into the lake. I'm hoping to get some pointers as to a place to launch and get bait, preferrably at the same time (resort, etc.). Also a good beach would be nice for my daughter. I'm suspecting that driving up CC and launching at a Chief Lake resort would be the easiest but it seems to me that the structure and bogs that are most interesting are in the main body or middle of the lake. I mainly target walleye but crappies, smallies and musky would be of interest as well. Any information will help!

Thanks!

I have a feeling your going to be **** out of luck for big round. I just got off the phone with resort owners on Nelson Lake and they said that there is still ice on the that lake. Given the fact that Round is Big, clear, and deep I think that it is going to be awhile till the ice comes off that one. YOu can always call up there to, try some of the places around the lake.

Big Round ice off for opener ? Not likely. there's snow on the ice and is tight to shore
