Lake Details

Summary

What you need to know about fishing Lake Onalaska

Located on the Mississippi, just north of La Crosse Wisconsin, Lake Onalaska is a flooded backwater consisting of a lot of shallow cover. With large grass flats and weeds growing to the surface, fishing for bass and pike can be caught using swim jigs, spinnerbaits, and frogs. Lures that will stay high in the water column will allow you to fish without getting snagged. Panfish can also be caught in Lake Onalaska by fishing weedlines and targeting them as they move shallow to spawn.
