Yes, it's a ways off, but was wondering if you had any input on which lake(s) in the Hayward area offer the best summer walleye fishing. We'll be up the end of July - I'll be fishing muskies but have a few buddies who want to do some walleye fishing...

Thanks in advance for any input!

Tight lines,

Thanks for posting, glad to help out. The Chippewa Flowage is your best bet, day in day out. This lake has a great combo of dark water, and good numbers of walleyes willing to bite during the day. The weeds produce all summer, wood in the 6 to 14 foot range works too, and lots of bonus smallmouth bass.

Hope you guys have a great time,

I've always done good on Grindstone, wait until sunset, even if it's cloudy,

Yeah, I've always liked grindstone early or late in the day too.
Can't wait for open water!
