Wisc. River - Nekoosa (Walleyes)
Was wondering if there is any update on the white bass run? Or general fishing report on the Wisconsin River below Nekoosa. Planning on driving there later today to hopefully catch some white bass for our church fish fry. It is like a hour and a half drive one way to fish there but usually is fairly good fishing.

Pat booked an afternoon trip for Friday to try for some crappies. We launched at Chester's and went out to the channel and down around Brown's Creek and soaked dead rods, and pitched 1/8 ounce jigs. Water temperature reached 58 by the end of the trip. A lot of current in the river. Jesse posted that there are 2 gates open at Nekoosa and looks like it is still coming over the dam as well. As of 6:30 this morning the head water level is less than a foot from being at summer target levels. That's up 8 inches from when I launched on Friday. Pat and I finished the trip with 7 crappies, 4 white bass, 12 short walleyes, 4 large mouth bass, and 1 small mouth.
Keep a tight line!!!

Ron booked another trip with me on the nekoosa stretch of river.
We launched the boat at 2 pm and fished till 7 pm.
Water temps were around 52 the entire trip.
Water is back on the rise, between the mill and dam the water is flowing over the point through the trees. Water is still dirty with good current. There was 2 gates wide open today.
Still a few walleyes around, mostly smaller males. White bass can be caught up and down the river in good numbers.
Find slack water and you will find the fish!

Went out late Wednesday afternoon before super for a hour and a half. Only myself and two other boats out a few shore fisherman. The water flow has dropped off a lot 15,000cfs to last weekends 27,000cfs. I caught walleyes and cats no whitebass but I did not the spot where I got them on Saturday. We need some sun and a little warmer temps to get the white bass going again like last weekend.

Fished today with a couple great guys from the south eastern part of the state.
We launched the boat around 9 am today and fished till 3 pm. Water temp was 51.4 in the morning hours and around 55 when we left.
Water is still dirty, Water is starting to drop. Still very good current flow with a lot of weeds and grass floating around.
Today we fished a couple slack water areas, Pitching jigs tipped with minnows, plastics and even caught a bunch on blade baits too.
Good luck, Be safe!
