I have not really run into fisherman on Owen.  Whenever I ask fisherman on
The Tigercat they are catching bass.  The fellows I spoke with on Lost Land Lake were catching bass and crappies.
I am up here now paddling on the Tigercat Flowage, Lake Owen, etc.  I have not heard anything of note.  I do know one fellow who is not here who is a hard core Muskie guy said it was too hot.  Hope you have good luck. 
I'm heading up in a little bit. Anyone have any action to report on up there. Lest year was my best year fishing in jack pine country.

MN, what's your review of Lake Owen and Tigercat? I've become more of a panfisherman than anything else. One of our pro-staffers turned me onto throwing micro-crankbaits for panfish. Sure is a fun way to fish.

Water levels are some of the lowest I've seen up in that area, over the past 50+ years.  It has affected fishing for sure.  Muskies have been slow this year.  I had some nice ones on, when they attacked my wacky worm rigs, but I only got one up to the boat due to the lighter tackle I use for bass fishing.  I have caught some nice bass, though.  Lately, I had to go even smaller and lighter, switching to finesse rigs to get the nice largemouth and smallies...   and a few nice crappies.  I recently downsized my baits for muskies, too.  I was trolling deep-diving (walleye) crankbaits just outside the deep weed edges last week and caught a decent musky.  We really need some rain up there!  The usual patterns just aren't producing!

DOW NAMED TO ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR POST AT WIAA

STEVENS POINT, Wis. – The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association announced the hiring of Mel Dow as an associate director for the association today. He will fill the position vacated by Deputy Director Wade Labecki, whose retirement becomes effective Sept. 1.

“It is a humbling honor to have the opportunity to become a member of the executive team of the WIAA and serve the student-athletes and schools of Wisconsin,” Dow said.  “Educationally based athletics and providing valued experiences have been at the core of my career, and I am looking forward to growing with the WIAA.”

Dow’s responsibilities will include the administration, coordination of duties and tournament planning for the sports of baseball, wrestling, and tennis. Other administrative duties include eligibility, coaching contact, camps, out-of-season participation, foreign students, sanctioning requests, and leading respective sport responsibility coaches and 7% committees. He is scheduled to begin his position on Aug. 2.

“Mel’s passion, work ethic and vision for interscholastic athletics will enhance the service that our WIAA team provides to the member schools and student-athletes,” Executive Director Stephanie Hauser said.  “I am confident that he will embrace this new challenge as an opportunity to make a positive difference, and we can’t wait to have him here on staff with us to roll up our sleeves and get to work.”

Dow has served as the athletics and activities director in the Stoughton School District since 2010. In addition to coordinating and administering the athletic programs and activities for grades 6-12, he supervised extensive athletic facility renovations and was a member of the Stoughton Wellness Coalition. He is credited with increasing sport participation and expanding programming during his tenure. He was also a member of committees for safety, additives, calendar and the selection of honors.

He has also made contributions at the state and national level, serving on the WIAA Sports Advisory Council from 2018-21, the WIAA Sportsmanship Committee from 2014-19 and on the Strategic Plan Committee of the Wisconsin Athletic Directors Association. Dow hosted and served as tournament director of the USA Wrestling World Team Trials in 2014 and 2015.

Prior to his position at Stoughton, Dow spent 11 years at Prairie du Chien High School as a physical education and adaptive physical education teacher. He also served as head wrestling coach and as an assistant coach in football and track & field. Other contributions included developing a student-athlete leadership group and serving as advisor of the Letter Winners Club, chairman of the athletic booster club, and the project chairman and designer of the weight room project.

Other athletics-related experience includes founder and coach of Wisconsin’s first visually impaired national wrestling team in 1996-97, assistant wrestling coach at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 1999-2000, and physical education teacher and assistant football, wrestling, and track & field coach at Rampart High School in Colorado Springs, Colo., from 1997-99.

Dow is 1992 graduate of Prairie du Chien High School, where he participated in football, track & field and wrestling. He earned a master’s degree in education from UW-La Crosse in 2002 after receiving a bachelor of science degree in exercise and sports science from there in 1997. He and his wife, Kristen, have one adult son, Tyler, 21, and 17-year old twins, daughter Trista and son Trenton.
