Great fall colors!

It’s gonna be a great weekend to get out and see fall colors! I was out on Lake Wissota a couple weeks ago, and leaves were just starting to turn, but now they’ve gotta be real close to peak.

I love heading down the Chippewa and taking in the sights. What’s your favorite spot?

Lake Wissota

It’s been a little chilly and overcast here at Lake Wissota this week, but the sun should be out tomorrow and Sunday morning (if you can believe the forecasters, that is).

We’re starting to see a lot of fall colors up here, and if you ask me, there’s no better place to look at them than out on the lake.

If you’re planning on camping, bring plenty of warm clothes, but also note that the bathrooms on the left loop are closed for the rest of the season.



Flambeau conditions

Water’s low on the Flambeau right now, it’s really noticeable on the south fork. You might have to drag your canoe a ways there. There’s low spots north of Park Falls too.

But still a good time to get out there — not as many bugs, cooler weather, and leaves getting ready to change. Great way to spend Sat. and Sun. afternoons in fall!

Fall Color

With fall weather coming to western Wisconsin this week the trees are showing signs of spotty color changes throughout Chippewa County. Enjoy paddling on the glacial lakes in the Chippewa Moraine Ice Age Reserve and you’ll be sure to spot some beautiful fall colors soon. Or paddle around Brunet Island State Park and enjoy all that is offered in Cornell. Lake Wissota provides great recreational activities all year round and will not disappoint with this fall season. Paddle the lake and then take in an apple orchard or area winery while enjoy the sites and tastes that are Wisconsin. See you on the water!

Fine fishin’

Looking to reel in some smallmouths this weekend? How about tracking down some musky?

Well, now’s a good time for anglers to get out on the lakes and rivers, says Jason Gillis with Flambeau Adventures in Ladysmith.

He said while the water is low for those looking for a canoe or kayak adventure, angling opportunities abound across the area right now. Smallmouth are biting, and musky are starting to come up, Jason said, so it’s a good time to get out on the waterways.
