Spring & Fall Fisheries Report

Below Are The Spring & Fall Fisheries Update

The Hayward DNR Fisheries Management Team conducted a fyke netting survey on the west
half of Lake Chippewa (also known as the Chippewa Flowage) from April 14-19 and May 9-11,
2017 to assess the adult walleye, muskellunge, northern pike, yellow perch, and black crappie
populations in the lake. Ten nets were set overnight for nine total nights which resulted in 87
total net-nights of effort (on three occasions a net was compromised). An electrofishing survey
conducted on May 30-31, 2017 documented the status of bluegill, smallmouth bass, largemouth
bass, and non-game species but also provided information on juvenile walleye. Twelve miles of
shoreline were shocked. Quality, preferred, and memorable sizes referenced in this summary are
based on standard proportions of world record lengths developed for each species by the American Fisheries Society.
