MOON PHASE (9%)
Waning Crescent

CONDITIONS
Partly Sunny

AIR TEMP
46° - 50° F

Launched from sewage treatment ($20 fee) the last two days...water is increasing in flow and debris (ice, trees, wood and leaves). Use caution.

Walleye bite is slow at best, current is very strong, USE CAUTION. Made it down past Yellow Banks on Wednesday. Target eddys and everything out of the current. Wouldn't advise small boats to be going out just yet.

Wolf River rigs out performed jig/minnow/plastic for us, 2 days and only one legal. Caught and released about 30 walleyes Tuesday/Wednesday. Witnessed shore fishing to the west side.

Here comes the weather!!!!!!!!!!!

Wet net, nice. I went down right away in the morning to check. I think that ice patch that was covering the stump flat to the west of the island had pushed south over the channel. It didn't look thick but I wasn't chancing getting caught up. Very possible it thawed or pushed out. Was it open past yellow banks at all?

Fished yesterday from 7:30 to about dark. Started down past Chester Creek just around the bend and worked up. In the morning I couldn't get past the channel bend heading towards Browns or yellow banks. I'm guessing it opened back up in the afternoon if wet-net made it down. 


Two guys in the boat. We had roughly the same water temps as previously posted except got the mouth of Ten Mile was a little warmer but very muddy. Water level up river appears higher and the current is pretty fast. Down river towards Chester creek the water is around 4 feet low. The fishing started consistent but slow. Got a few flurries of action when the sun finally popped out. We caught fish on minnows and jigs and plastics. Color didn't matter. The most fish came on Rippin Raps worked back to the boat slowly in the current. I think that was purely a reaction bite but, it worked. We caught about 25 eyes. Only one legal. Best action was right around noon. Most fish came down river from Ten Mile. Nothing up from Plank Hill.

Took the boat out for a shake down today. Water temp is 35.5 to 36.3. Water is a few feet low. Moderate current flow look like one full gate and a quarter of one open. Allot of ice chunks coming down. Both landings were being used. About 12 rigs at the treatment plant landing and around 5 down river. All the back waters are froze up and low. I was able to get all the way down to the mouth of Petenwell  Yellow Banks. Fishing was slow only caught one small walleye and missed a few others.the fish would just Have the minnow tail and let go half way up to the boat. Spent most of my time at Browns Creek area. Better days to come. Most likely back to ice fishing for awhile yet.
