I have never ice fished here, but was thinking of maybe trying it next weekend along with some bow hunting. I do open water fish here a handful of times each summer. I was thinking of heading out off of point rd by foot or atv. Are there any thin or unsafe spots that I should be extra careful around? Do the fish relate more to the channel or the deeper cribs this time of year? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, Thank You

I am planning a fishing trip for this coming weekend . I am looking for information on the water level and fishing reports for dairyland and big falls. Is there any hunting going on that would limit my access to the river? I have fished this river before but it was in the spring right after the opener. Also any info on where to stay while I am out there would be very helpful. Thanks

Hey guys, spent a lot of time fishing the flowage - the fish certainly weren't jumping in the boat but i ended up boating two 34" and a nice 45" musky.

I'll be going up again this weekend to cast for the toothy stuff, I have room in my boat for one if you are looking to get out there.

Tight lines.

QUESTION ANGLERS:

What are current water temps? Any fish activity or changes in pattern with the cooling trends and extreme cold fronts?

Coming up for 9 days to beat the water to death (mostly for muskies). Any updates on water temp, water levels, weed conditions, water clarity, or fish movement would be super appreciated.

And if you're lookin to buddy up for a day on the water shoot me a message.

Thanks, Jon

He is correct, there isn't to much to worry about till it gets shallow. When you go out from the launch swing it wide towards the opposite side because when it starts to narrow down, just a little upstream from were the point ends, there is a rock pile just under the surface. Most of the time there is a jub tied there to warn you. Other than that it is pretty safe, but remember that the river goes a long ways before the next dam so there can sometimes be floating logs or branches. ( Especially after a storm)

You won't have a problem, until you run out of water.

I am planning on taking my family to big falls flowage this weekend. We were gonna go upstream a ways. I was wondering if there are a lot of navigation hazards or if a 16ft boat have much problems. Any info is greatly appreciated thank you

You can get to with in about 100 yards of the dam without to much trouble if you stay in the channel. There are rock croppings coming out of the water on the way up there, but the water is fairly deep a little ways away from them. It is very very shallow the last 100 yards. You can get right to the base of the dam put I wouldn't suggest it, because there is only a narrow spot to get through without hitting rocks below the surface and the current going back down makes it very difficult to steer in time to avoid. Unlike most dams the water in front of the spill ways is not deep at all. To the previous poster, the dairland is a nice body of water. It does get somewhat busy especially on holiday weekends because of the campground. It is a fairly long body of water so there is usually plenty of spots to go and not be bothered by pleasure boaters. During the week there is very little traffic. Big Falls flowage which is right upstream of the dairyland is almost always free of pleasure boats. I think you would find the county as a whole to be one of the least touristy areas around . There is abundant public land for hunting.

Would anyone tell me how safe (I put a certain amount of value on my lower unit) the ride is from Josie Creek up to the dam?
