I wouldnt fish it with a 13 you see lots of people doing it. I guess it has to do with your comfort level. I have a 16.5 6 foot 8 beam and the current is enough to handle. Go check it out first the current rips down there.

You can do a lot of fishing with a 13 ft boat and a 9.5 motor, but be warned that when water flow is up there can be dangerous currents. Myself and one other much bigger boat fished a 16 ft level pushing 57,000 cfs over the dam and I won't ever do that again. Even with the level right now 2 feet above summertime low, you've gotta watch out for much bigger boats plowing slow and making a big wake at times, not even on purpose. All I'm sayin is be careful, lotta people rent boats that size from Rivers Edge. Come summertime you've gotta watch out for the jetboats and their wake they will swamp you.

Sure will .. stop at rivers edge in ask for the map they give (free)so you know were the rock bar is I'm sure its visible with the low water , but better safe than sorry and if you go up to the dam stay to the left within 10 to 15 feet of the point where the pool begins. Hopefully I'll be there Sunday if the weather cooperates

Fished today from 7 to about noon, I picked up a couple shorts up by the dam early and that was it. I tried a few areas nothing else. This was my first time fishing here and it could of just been me but things were slow. Being my first time here it showed damn near took out my lower unit! Thankfully it's ok and just some prop damage...moral to story be more careful when on new water lol

in the Dells stretch of river caution yellow is by far the best color to use specially when smallmouth/eye fishing regardless of the waters clearity, next would be white then I would go to purple as my third choice if I didn't have any smoke color with flakes in it. when it comes jig color orange seems to be the hot color in pre spawn after that black, red, purple are my favorite if I could ever find them again is a jig with caution yellow chartreuse green and a big red eye ball outfished anything. Good luck hopefully I'll be able to come up this weekend if I don't head to Depere

Purple. Dirty water gets bright - often chartreuse/orange jighead - and in clear water purple is a good first choice to start.

If I were to only own two colors plastic that'd be them.
