FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Raining Air Temp: 71° - 75° F Water Temp: 71° - 75° F
Fished in the rain Saturday afternoon and found many bass stacked up along deep edges with some scattered along shallow weed lines as well. Had to run the bilge nearly non stop, but other than that, it was a great afternoon!

nasty crybaby messages aside- shame on me for outing Fisherman's Road like that- more rain is in the forecast. Screw it, I'm going trout fishing..

FISHING REPORT

I did some driving around, and found facts that support a lot of the posts below- the sail boat launch on French Island is closed due to flooding; Spillway Road is flooded as well, the primitive launches on Fisherman's road are okay, but the one at the end is washed out and has ruts.

Water conditions- chocolate milk. I was on the lower Black over by Shopko Bay, some clearer water in spots, but hard to find the sand flats since the river is so high. I also fished on Fisherman's road for a while yesterday, same results, some clearer water in spots there.

Saw a report from a local guide who said that the fish are spread out in the backwaters and are in places you can not get to with a boat. I think until the river comes down a few feet, it will be hard to pattern the fish and with the stained water and debris, it is going to be a hard place to fish.

Landings are flooded, will probably need boots. Quite a bit of current running thru lake with a lot of weeds and river debris. Worst of it is that water looks like chocolate milk. Good luck

I will be in the area Friday 6/27-Monday 6/30. If the Mississippi is at a flood stage, how does that affect Lake Onalaska?

I just saw at weather.com the following:

THE FLOOD WARNING CONTINUES FOR THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AT LA CROSSE. * UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE... OR UNTIL THE WARNING IS CANCELLED. * AT 8:00 PM TUESDAY THE STAGE WAS 12.2 FEET. * FLOOD STAGE IS 12.0 FEET. * MINOR FLOODING IS OCCURRING AND MINOR FLOODING IS FORECAST. * FORECAST... THE RIVER WILL STAY ABOVE FLOOD STAGE THEN RISE TO NEAR 12.4 FEET BY MONDAY MORNING. ADDITIONAL RISES MAY BE POSSIBLE THEREAFTER.

What??? are you kidding us about not able to cross the tracks to the spillway anymore?! its easily accessible for everyone from the city and now it will be one greatly missed place for youngsters and adults to fish from. the city needs to work with the railroad to allow public access to the spillway. i am thinking it can be done because where i live, lake wissota has a very popular swimming beach that nine years ago was extensively renovated which included a walking path that crosses railroad tracks. the walking path "zig-zags" so that you are to look both ways before crossing. http://chippewa.com: "LaFayette moves forward on Ray's Beach". soon there wont be ANY free public shore fishing to the Miss. from the dresbach or genoa dam walls Angry

River's relatively high, and water temp is 57* (average from various locations). Things are definitely different than years gone by.

Talking to some of the BFL guys, the bass are all over the place, and seeing a few smaller bags come in for this tournament than years go by as well.

To touch base with the panfish requests, I'd try Blackdeer first, then after that- maybe along Fisherman's road and 22. Water is still pouring over the top of the spillways, but I heard of a good whitebass bite on the French Island Spillway (the one you gotta walk ¼ mile to get to). Onalaska has been pretty slow.

A word of advise for those who plan on fishing Onalska Spillway this year. Be aware BNSF is starting to crack down on people walking the tracks and parking in the lot below the bike trail. I've received a confirmed report that 3rd party security company is patrolling and giving warnings to would-be-trespassers.

Best bet, if you plan on fishing the spillway this year, walk down from the bike trail and go up through the park- or park on Fisherman's road and cross the dam (when the water goes down)..

Looking to take the kids fishing this weekend, I was hoping to find a general fishing report for the area, namely pan fish.

How is the activity, will it be enough to keep the kids interested, for more than an hour?

Peace

Anyone been out pan fishing recently? This thread has been pretty dead for a while. javascript:addEmoticon('Lips Sealed') Dont see too many boats out on the lake either. How do the landings look during memorial day weekend in years past. Is it going to be a zoo or is it worth my time to check the lake out this weekend?
