Went out this morning around 9 o'clock a.m. and was fishing for walleye from the top of the dam. Was using all types of lures including nightcrawlers and didn't even get a single bite! There was a couple other fishermen on top of the dam wall and wasn't catching anything either. I guess the fish isn't there yet.

That must be from a boat as I tried from shore and got Butkus.

Does anybody know if the walleye are running right now? If so what type of bait or lures are they using? Any information will be gladly appreciated.

Fished the dam Friday evening. The dam was partially closed. No current on the East side. The Island was exposed, water level way down. Only a couple of fisherman around. No current so went down stream past the Island and found some good current. Nothing biting. Tried Jig and Minnows and crawlers and cranks. Nothing, but an awesome evening to be out by the water.

There have been plenty of boats out there over the last few weeks. Certainly all of the launches are ice free now... I know the Burtons Bridge launch is open, not sure about others.

I think the dead fish are shad. http://www.tva.com/river/neighbors/feb09/shad.htm

Did some dam walleye fishing on Tuesday, from about 4 pm - close. I was at the bottom of the wall jiggin' one pole, slip-bobber on the other. Nothing. A guy on the wall next to me landed a nice one, somewhere in the slot limit, and released it. I heard earlier, people in boats did good on some small males.
