Going to try this again.... Never made it up last week but thinking about heading to Nekoosa from Milwaukee this Wednesday. Before I make the drive any information will be appreciated. Water level, the bite, etc. Thanks.

Thinking of heading up for the day on Wednesday. Are fish still holing in the river or mostly in the "Pete"? It's about a 2 hour drive for me so some tips would be helpful before I make the decision. Looking for some eyes. Thanks in advance for the help.

Weekend Report about the action on the “Pete”. Went out on Friday with Pa and ChunkyMonkey. Despite the wind and rain on Friday we toughed out the conditions to manage an excellent take home of Crappies and one keeper Walleye.

A special thank you to Walleyeguy007. He is a valued fisherman to this area.

Seemed the flow was picking up over the weekend with a gate and ½ open up by paper mill. On Friday the current was light, but increased on Saturday. We knew it was going to be a great day when not much more then 15 minutes into our trip a monster Crappie was sucking my minnow at the end of my rod. Ended the day with 13 Crappie and one Walleye in the box. Lost several others due to LFT on the net. Also we managed to get a few FrankFish in the boat, boy do dem ugly things bark like a dog.

Saturday was a much different bite then what Friday had produced. After Early rise and constant prayer, Pa and I decided to make a last ditch effort after the snow, rain, and general cold passed. Fished from 2-6 with a lot of action later on in the evening. Pa and I had a team effort boating the 2 Walters as pictured, one being 26 and ¾ the other smaller 22 ½. Both CPR to protect the future of this outstanding fishery. The day was not complete without Frank rearing his ugly head in the form of a 10lb Smelly Channel Cat, dem some fish. Saturday was capped off boating 10 Walleye, 2 Keeper size, 8 Short, and 2 Slot Fish.

For those reading this report please keep my Best Friend, ChunkyMonkey in your prayers as the man is starting his chemo therapy treatment this Monday. You are going to make it thorough this brother.

F&%$ Cancer!!!

Fished the lower section of the river last night from about 3 to dark. Started out trolling boards and cranks. Picked up a bunch of short walleyes in 7-9 fow with a few legals. After the trolling bite slowed up we anchored in a few spots and pitched 1/8th jigs with 4 inch ring worms. Caught a mixed bag with some nice crappies and a couple white bass. Also got a bunch more short walleyes and a couple more legals. Biggest eye of the night was a 29 incher! Everything was released. And this my friends is why I would rather walleye fish in the fall instead of bow hunt!

The river is not high only one gate was opened half way. Most of the rain was local and very little fell up north so we cleared quickly.

I think I finally figured out how to embed my videos properly. Here is one that was giving me problems from this spring chasing walleyes.
