Fishing Report March 31, 2020
Anglers All, Located at 2803 E. Lake Shore Drive (U.S. Highway 2) in Ashland, is a full-service tackle and fly shop offering a huge selection of baits and tackle for year round fishing. For the most complete and up-to-date fishing report, just give them a call at 715/682-5754, and they will gladly keep you informed! Anglers All reports: Anglers All is temporarily closed in accordance with the Wisconsin mandate. CHEQUAMEGON Bay is still ice covered but the ice is shifting and deteriorating so ice fishing is no longer encouraged.
Fishermen are beginning to get their boats out and there have been some good trolling reports off Saxon Harbor and Sand Bay. Smelting is just around the corner but as much as I hate to say this, PLEASE don’t come from outside the area to smelt or fish at this time. Enjoy the outdoors in your own locale.
If you need some of our Specialized Great Lakes tackle please leave a message on our Facebook page or email me at
email@example.com. I can ship!
Be safe and see you soon

Lake Shore Drive (U.S. Highway 2), in Ashland where you can stop in and see their wide variety of live bait, fishing tackle, gear, accessories, fresh and smoked fish from Lake Superior, local meat sticks, and microbrews, and much more. Call them at 715/682-3232 for the most current fishing report. Scott Bretting from River Rock Inn & Bait Shop reports: Ice Fishing is done for the season. The streams are now opening up; but make sure and check the Wisconsin Regulations for an update on which streams are open. There have been good reports on fish being caught on the Brule. Stop in and purchase fresh White Fish or Trout if you don’t want to fish right now.
