Rule of thumb- when the lilacs bloom, the white bass run. This runs pretty true. The pictures are from Devils Lake, ND- white bass there run up to 4 1/2 pounds.

Mattman.. there will be a lot of white bass coming upstream as usual. They will probably start showing up after this next week, it looks like the water temp will be rising!

Thanks for the help guys I appreciate it. Also, is there any chance of catching any other species on the river anywhere right now like say casting twisters for white bass or slip bobbers for crappie or do they only come up certain times of the year from the big water? Thanks

Matt, drop me a PM if looking for jigs in this area. A friend of mine makes them of all sizes and I can hook you up with several sizes, reasonably enough, if the need exists. As was said, having a range of sizes/weights is helpful as you will be making frequent changes depending on the river level/fishing location. We got some of our bigger fish on lighter jigs while down river in the slower deeper water on Tuesday, with slightly heavier ones needed in the swifter current further upstream. Sometimes those roles are reversed, depending upon presentation type and river flow. That day(Tuesday), not staying vertical, moving things along, and using a light enough jigs/artificials/cranks to bounce over the snags was important for catching numbers and size.

Went out day (nekoosa) from 7:30-1ish. Ran some 3/way rigs with f5's hot colors really slow pick up 2 shorts. Tried some thunder stick jr in uv colors an not a bite! Switched to jig and a Minnow picked up a few more shorts and 2 keepers. Pink seemed to be the color! She's a cold one today!

Mattman. Most of my luck has been on a lead head 1/4 ounce and a ringworm plastic bait. Work it slow and you will pick up fish. Also try 1/8 ounce you will get away with that now since the water isn't moving do fast now. Or just simply split shot hook and minnow .

Any tips on shore fishing by Nekoosa for eyes right now? I'm new to it and just wondering what size sinkers I would need to keep my bait on the bottom or what jigs to put on. Any tips would help a ton! Thanks! Feel free to PM me

I ment to put on Centralia in boat. I fished in boat after 7pm when I was vertical jigging there. Off shore fishing I know you can't vertical jig obviously. First part of day was off shore when I got that bass and other walleyes. At dark I went in boat and vertical jigged.

River report 3-25-15. Water levels remain a good foot low. All gates are now closed. Water temp this morning was back to 37 degrees. We need flow and some warmer temps however some slots are starting to show up. It is close.
