I'm headed out Sunday after church as well as Monday morning. I'm thinking hungry fish and some open water. I will report back Monday.

Hard strikes!

I fish McKinley Pier and near summerfest grounds. Just look for boats near there and Im sure theyll be fish especially under Hoan bridge.

River is iced but not completely. I expect later in the day on Saturday and Sunday will be a little melted. If not there are still plenty of spots now with falls and quick water that are open especially by Estabrook. Saw a guy down under capitol dr a day ago in waders and water was flowing. I was suprised because of how cold it was that day.

Good advice. I will be out Sunday and Monday since I suspect Saturday will still be frozen. Where towards the harbor is good to fish and easiest way to the water there? Thanks for any help you can give.

I wouldnt give up on the bite just yet. I know its going to be deer season but that means less people on the river. Itll warm up this weekend and probably bring a run in. Ill be out there. If its not producing Ill be moving toward the harbor.

if u don't see fish in 15 minutes stop fly fishing and change presentation ..Sorry won't give up the spot cause it's small only 3 people in sync can fish it and about 20 people know about it , and the walleye population seems to be declining in the rvr but this will help u hook up.. go to the opposite side of the beer garden that is the deeper side there is a hole there also that's over waist deep and in spring is up to my shoulders I'm sure it gets much higher but it would be unfishable . cast 4 or 5 inch long SHALLOW runner shad raps perch (for pike and bass)and shad pattern ( trout, salmon,bass) give it a good fast crank to get it down then super slow retrieve this time of yr let the current do the work about 20 ft from shore rod tip up give it a twitch. And if you don't have a fish in 15 minutes there not there or are not biting yet. So move towards the slower current break I might b there in the morning around 10 if I can drive my truck ( need new battery working till 10 pm so no sure ) down there without getting stuck trying to get up the mud road.

Yeah looks like a warm up is brewing. I got a steely further toward locust but that was the only fish I saw all day. There really wasnt many spots open cuz of the ice forming and the only holes I found were near each of the falls. Ill be out this weekend cuz my lines wont freeze then. good luck

I'm interested in knowing where this hole is as well. I am more familiar with Kletzsch Park but like what I have seen so far at Estabrook especially on the South side.

Where further downriver were you when you had luck?

Looks like by the weather report I will be back Sunday and Monday.

Thanks.

Bill

Late report from Saturday morning had to go down rvr to deep hole ,falls had salmon there wasn't targeting them with 10# test good thing I keep my drag loose so they get off with slow retrieve and not setting the hook so I'm not snagging as the two fly fishermen stated ( haters) Casting shad raps caught 3 small northern couple eyes near 22" and I think I had a redhorse or sturgeon on cuz I doubt it was a ski in this stretch fished for 2 hrs would've stayed longer but lost my last shallow runner on probably a salmon smashed it hard n darted

Bright green jointed Rapala with orange belly. I think Steel but never surfaced for me to be sure. I will be back out when it is warmer (? next week ?)
