For everyone calling,texting and sending emails, The river is very high,dirty and moving fast. There was 2 gates wide open this morning. Boards are still broken out to the right of the dam! Stopped down for a few cast with the little one off the doc at the treatment plant. couple small walleyes and sheeps heads.

Never fished here before, usually fish fremont for the white bass but would like a change. Is there anywhere a guy could shore fish here? P.m. if needed. Thanks!

Petenwell is next dam downstream.  If water high there it is likely high upstream.  A quick way to check water flow in this stretch is to call 715-422-3700. It gives flow rates , water temp, and how much gate is open for dams from Dubay to rapids.  It is a daily recording.  Can extrapolate the info for next few dams and get an idea for the flow headed south.  River appears to have crested.  Flow was 36,000 cubic feet per second 2 days ago.  Is about 23000 now at Dubay but over 30000 in rapids.

I take it that means the gates are open. I'm not from around here, so I don't know how much rain fell nor where it fell. 

Next time,  a simple 'yes' or 'no' would do...

Are the gates open in nekoosa? They're all open under Petenwell... and the parking lot south of 21 was almost flooded yesterday 5/19.

Thanks.

By park area do you mean directly north or south of the dam?

i had a water temp today of 58.3. Everyone is catching whitebass all over the river. I caught mostly smaller males but did get a few large females that didn't drop yet. I was pulling flies up river on a 3 way .8 to 1 mph seem to work the best. I also pitched 1/8 oz jig n minnow behind downed trees, very little current.
