Nekoosa flow rate 18,400 at 36 degrees. With the warm weather coming the fishing should get great as long as the current stays down. Go get them and be safe.

They closed another gate last night leaving one open with water still coming over the top of dam where the boards broke out. The islands are now starting to show. The bite is picking up.

Well may dad and I made it up again this past weekend and fishing was slow going but picked up as the weekend progressed. Friday the 11th 2 shorts and 1 slot at 22.5". All fish caught down river. We tried up at several spots and noda. Did see some from shore getting caught but nothing in the boats. Saturday dad fished solo while I spent some time w/the family. He only lasted till 1030am till he was soaked, but ended up with 2 legals and 1 slot. Both caught lil ways south of plank hill launch. Sunday Dad and I reunited to fish and by noon I caught 1 slot and my dad caught 2 legals and 2 slot. Unfortunately my dad had to leave. Took him back to launch and I headed back out. That is when things got good. Long story short if there ever was such a thing, I limited out and caught 5 shorts and 8 more slots. All slots 22.5"-23.5" except one of my dads was a 25"er. All slots except 1 were females filled with eggs. 3 Legals were 15.5, 1 at 16.5 and 1 at 17. All fish caught down river south of plank hill landing. All fish caught on jig/minnow/twister combo, except 3 slots. Caught 3 slots casting crankbaits. Good luck and tight lines to all. Hope I can get out again soon. D&E

Fished with a buddy for a few hours this afternoon. 1/8th ounce jigs and twister tails. Green and white or green and chartreuse. Fish were pretty close to shore. Hard to feel the bite with the horrible wind! Water has come down some and is starting to get easier to fish. Tried some cranks but it was hard to cast in the wind. Ended with two at 27 inches, a 25, 23, 22, and a keeper at 19 1/2. All females and all hard with eggs.

One of the flood gates was closed last night. Water is still coming over the top of the dam but only where the boards broke out. The islands are still under water but things are going in the right direction. There is room to roam the shore lines again as water levels are dropping.

Fished early morning today with decent results given the typical day. I really should start filming my day for a comedy show. Beautiful morning, but a cold 9 degrees when I arrived. Needless to say had my choice of fishing spots.

First event of the day, 3rd cast snapped my Fenwick rod. Then snow melted under radio on top of hill. Radio rolled down hill into water. Note: Makita radios float well and worked great the rest of the day.

Managed 5 landed slots 21.5 to 26. Missed and lost a couple others. The 26 was the most beautiful male I have ever seen/caught. The whole fish was a very orange color and mouth, gill and side fins were bright pink. He was not milking that I could see like the 14" squirters, would assume he would be a fire hose, and the females were full. Seems like more activity is headed our way in the days ahead. Hopefully the warm up next week will get things going. Lots of water still coming through, but has dropped more than a foot......for now!

Tight lines and be safe!

Stopped and fished for a couple hours on my way home from Ft. McCoy. 1/8th ounce jig and chartruse power grub along the shore. No minnows. Caught a 28 1/2 inch female full and hard with eggs. And lost a mid 20's at the shore trying to grab the fish. The big one was 9.25 lbs. I managed to catch the same fish twice about an hour later!

I kinda figured it sounded like wakley was out of the question and a anchor wouldn't do much. Thanks

28,000cf/s means it hard to find a slack water spot above the boat launch that does not have a boat already in it.

to anonymous, being on the river last week the river is up higher than its normal state. I hope that helps you. You can also check out Kevin Witts posts and you can call him at Nekoosa bait and tackle and he can give you the updated river statuses.
