Report for the last several days. Been fishing below the dams the last couple of weeks with good success. On Saturday they started flushing ice through the dam and things changed. Since then the river has been rising at a steady rate and current flow is increasing. (along with dirty water) Wednesday was a beautiful day, with air temps in the upper 60's. Mixed bag that day including my first two channel cats of the season. Walleye, sauger and a few perch came into the boat. Not a hot bite, but enough to keep it interesting! Yesterday things changed along with the North wind. Very tough bite.
Now we have freezing rain and snow......welcome back winter! Bad thing is the ice fishing season has pretty much came to an end. The weather is to improve next week, so should be back to some good late winter fishing as soon as the water levels get back to normal.
Thanks for reading my reports, and have a great weekend!
