Fishing, Family, Fun
Wolf River Resorts
This timetable was compiled by area fishermen and Doug Nelson. It is based upon years of fishing experience. It is designed solely as a guide to help you enjoy outdoor activities in our area. Water and weather conditions may alter this timetable.
Panfishing in the channels and shallow bays is excellent and continues right into early ice. Walleyes and Northern Pike are eating heavily getting ready for the winter. The Rat River area is a great location to try.
White Bass is excellent the first couple of weeks. Walleye fishing is good until Ice Up as the fish migrate up the river. Night fishing on the bridge is the most productive.
Fall spawning run of White Bass starts and peaks towards the end of the month. Walleye activity increases, Fall Walleye run usually starts by the end of the month.
Motor-trolling provides great multi-species action. Early mornings and late evenings are best. Fishing guides can turn those “Dog Days of August” into great days of fishing.
Northern Pike are near the weed beds. Panfishing is at its peak in most areas. The Horseshoe Hole on Poygan holds schools of White Bass and Walleye.
Best month of fishing for all species. Trolling or drifting on Lake Poygan or Winneconne is a sure bet for Walleyes and Northern Pike. Large Perch are caught in Lake Winneconne.
Walleye and White Bass fishing peak during the first week or two in the rivers. Walleyes head back into the lakes mid-month. Northern Pike, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass along with Panfish and Catfish bite well into June.
Walleye fishing still in full swing. The ice should be off the lakes by mid-month and Perch start to show up in the shallow bays. Crappies start moving into the channels.
The famous Wolf River Walleye Run begins mid-month and continues through all of April at a brisk pace. The larger Walleyes are taken at the onset of the Spring Walleye Run.
DECEMBER – MARCH
Ice fishing around the area provides world class Northern Pike, Walleye, White Bass, Perch, Bluegill and Crappie. Don’t forget about the Sturgeon spearing season in February.
