I have heard the same as pike, no fishing at all until spring of 2018. Info can be found on the City of Muskego website. I believe the photo posted is a snapshot of what is on their website.
My friend who has lived on the lake for 49 years and interviewed by the DNR and Milwaukee Journal because of the drawdown, etc.....confirmed that fishing this lake is completely shut down until the spring of 2018 which a final date is yet to be determined. I heard that March/April timeframe was recommended or until the lake comes back up to adequate levels. They do NOT want the fishery decimated by angler's pulling fish out which are/will be congregated in "pockets" of water which would be like fishing in a barrel as they said. The DNR is making a wise decision in this case.
I'm hearing that, due to the drawdown, they are shutting the fishery down for ice fishing. True? If so, what are the details...no fishing at all? catch and release only? Timing? Any links to the official decision available? I can't seem to find anything online.
Launched at 4 the rain pushed us off at 7:30. Working the weed edges with the drop shot picked up some decent Bass and a 33 inch Pike. I had the father-son duo today. Ben in the front of the boat definitely held the hot hand. Big sign about the draw down at the launch I took a picture of it
On August 20 went out and chased some bluegills around. Most of the action was early between 630-730 up until about 10 then had to get off, wind mixed with tubers, skiers and jet skis made it rough to fish. All in all 12 gills culled from about 60 caught, 2 scrawny perch and 2 juvenile largemouth bass...
