Wisc. River - Nekoosa (Walleyes)
Last year today I was on the river in the boat. This year the landing is open some ice on top of landing. The river is open to Plank Hill I think a person could get down river you might have to break up some ice. I don’t like the new style Boat launch permit the sticker was way better. The City purchased 5 years worth so no stick for some time to come.

John and Donna from Nekoosa booked a morning trip on the river for today. They were out with me last fall and wanted to try the river and the north end of the lake. There is still three sections of boards out at the Nekoosa dam so there is still a lot of current flowing and a lot of debris as well. We soaked slip bobbers, jigged, used dead rods, and trolled and finished with a lot of "shorties", 1 "keeper". 2 in the slot, some white bass, catfish, and sheep's head.
Keep a tight line!!!
