FISHING REPORT
7/4/15 10:59 AM CST
Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 71° - 75° F Water Temp: 71° - 75° F
Delayed report from last weekend. S-L-O-W but the reports since then look like things have picked up (of course, after I leave!)

Fished Friday June 26 in the morning from shore with my friend and his son for a couple hours starting at 7. Threw quite a variety out there (spinners, jigs, cranks), but only catch was on live bait on river rig, and a sheephead at that.

Friday evening fished from shore downstream between County O bend and Norway Drive landing. Still nothing on artificials - we got 3 sheep and a redhorse on crawler/river rigs, then a 4 foot sturgeon at sunset.

Saturday morning took the boat out to the County O bend. Skunk-o-rama.

Saturday evening by Mexicali Rose - more of throwing everything to no avail - a sheep on a crawler/rig.

Sunday morning at the public park next to Rivers Edge, finally caught the first smallmouth of the trip - on a crawler/rig. And a sheephead for good measure. Then a little later near the dam, another smallie and sheephead - the smallie on a worm dragged with a split.

Tough weekend despite trying a variety of baits and spots, but the 4 foot sturgeon at least took some of the sting out. Hope July is better.

Happy Fourth and tight lines!

I've never fished the Wisconsin River, but I'm pretty sure white bass run on this river, right? Has anyone caught white bass near the dam? Thanks in advance.

Side note: this is the river by the Wisconsin Dells, right? I'm going on a vacation to the dells in about 2 weeks & im wondering if I should bring my rod. Wink

Been fishing a lot lately at area lakes because of the slow river bite. Another rainy/cold June made for some dirty/high water. Thankfully it is finally coming down and warming up. The fishing is ready to come around as well. Recent trips produced some good smallies and a bunch of pike, as well a a butter-ball monster carp that this family took turns fighting. Pike hammering anything tight to the flooded bushes. Smallies on rattling cranks. Sound is so important when water clarity is poor. Got to call 'em in! See on the River!

Floated from Newport to Indian Trail. Started at 7:45am. 6 smallies and 2 northerns. Biggest northern was a 24 inch that fought like one twice its size. Once the fish was 'yak side, I see why. It had a 6 inch wide bite mark across its midsection. All fish caught on #5 shallow shad raps, in willows.

On Rivers Edge is Botch and River Lady still running the show there? Was there for 5 days in May and did not see either of them or did they sell the business to someone else. I think I know which employee you are talking about in the bait shop..

Referred to river's edge resort through friends and website about $55 for one day boat rental. End up costing us $90 for 3hrs from 4-7pm. Asked for a discount because only going out for a short time but rudely shut down. Ad on the website never said 15 charge for gas. Given a boat with a motor that constantly stalled ,so couldn't venture out on the river afraid we would get stranded. Dealt with a less than pleasant cashier/employee. To sum it all ZERO fish caught to help soften the blow to the wallet and HOSPITALITY of river's edge resort.
