On Monona this afternoon. Piers are in at Olbrich, what a great surprise! Didn't dress quite warm enough, not real pleasant. Water clarity is poor all the way down to 55'. There's decent sunlight penetration, camera didn't switch from color to B/W until around 40'. Didn't mark any fish out in the deeper water. But nice and quiet out there!

They've installed a new cleaning station at Olbrich. The city told the installation crew where to put it but they decided they'd put it in the most stupid location possible instead. They took up the already limited non-trailer parking spaces alongside the creek between the launch and lake. So people trying to clean their boats off will be in the way of people trying to launch. Hopefully the city will force them to move it to a better location.

No.

General inland fishing for gamefish begins the first Saturday in May. That includes Lake Monona. It's right there in the fishing regs booklet.

I would not call the water on Saturday to be clear by any means for this time of year, in fact this is some of the cloudiest I recall it being in early spring. Indeed the water is extremely low but hopefully this rain will help. Fishing was ok. Gills on waxies and chunks of redworm. Nothing on Crappie minnows.

Icefan,

The lake is as it usually is after ice out clean and clear. It is very low! Hopefully the rain this weekend and the rain to come will help the levels come up. We found gills in the shallow warmer bays. Its only going to get better Smile

I hope you meant sight hunting for skies, as we still have a few more weeks before the big gear comes out.

Put the canoe in at launch near squaw bay. Brother in-law and myself caught several gills in four feet. Sorted through them and kept about 20 between us. Ice fishing jig and waxies under a bobber. Also yes the wall is open.
