Doe anyone have any general info on the fishing in that area. I would think if there is decent depth rock etc than there is fish to be had. Im more curious about depth navigation stuff like that.

I understand no one can predict the bite but i also know that river go up and down with the seasons and precip. I looked on G earth and i noticed the dam is just a short distance up. so that should be a place to look at as well.

Hey guys, plan to come down to the dells area in mid october to do some fishing. Just my wife and myself for 4 or 5 days. I was hoping i could get some advice suggestions on boat rental and lodging. hopefully from the same place.

I was reading a little on rivers edge. I see they have boat rentals and its on the water. I was curious if thats a decent stretch to fish bass walleye etc. by no means is this spot set in stone but it looked like a nice location.

Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Thanks guys

Cronk Stay safe and Good fishin!!!

Was out from 6 am to 11 am. My buddy and I crushed the smallies. Most ran 12-17 in. We had two just shy of twenty. Got a few early on top waters then after that had to go to plan b. Boy did that pay off. Got a couple of sheeps and short walleyes too. Caught about 25 fish total. So it was a solid morning.

The walleye and cat fishing up here has been great. The couple times that I've been out since low water, the eyes have been shallow and in or near wood. Same with channel cats. I'm hearing similar results from others. The channel cat population is very healthy.

rebel 93. The river is pretty good from the wire to where you enter the damn area. like all rivers bottom obstructions will move. take some time and use your electronics and scope it out slow. then you will know where yopu can run and where you cant. Good luck rebel

Would like to get boat out on this section of river, buttt wanted to here from people who take there boat out there, if my boat would be okay to take thru the river in the Dells. I have a 17ft Ranger bass boat with 150hp Evinrude. Any advice or knowledge of this area of the river would be great, because repairs are costly on my boat! Sleepy Thanks!

Went out for a few hours by the dam. Had one rod on the bottom with a night crawler while casting a couple different lures for pike and Muskie. Did not get one single bite on my spinning rod after constantly casting and casting for 4 hours. However got tons of bites on the crawler but all I managed was to catch 2 drum. Drum in the picture was about 2 pounds.

The river has been tougher this year for me,I believe it's due to the water changes so often. Some crappies on Saturday ,using gulp minnows. Tight lines

The fishing has been slow indeed. The smallies are neither as plentiful nor as big as they used to be. The guide mentioned by swim jig is the main reason. He has been exploiting our fragile resource for the last few years, educating the fish as well as anyone willing to take the short cuts. Tournaments have still been going on, but the river is off limits nowadays for the most part so its not that. Pretty sad to see something like this ruined for very little personal gain.

Thanks guys glad to hear population is still good. Took a drive with the wife tonight went up river rd from portage and back down county o. Got a few fish here and there did have a dandy flat head on but 6lb test against a mid 20 flattie not a fair fight. Took me into a big snag and gone. But nice day on water headed to bago in am. Fish came on jigs and river shiners. Man did I miss the river. And wow are there Sandhill cranes everywhere. Also saw a beaver that was huge I mean monster size easy 60 lbs.

So I haven't fished the river in 11 yrs been gone to ak and hi. What the heck happened? We fished from pine island up stream to the luck wow. Never saw fish working breaks or smallies chasing shiners, very sad to see this stretch of river so dead!! We caught 11 smallies 4 pike and 3 eyes not one was legal. I throw them all back anyway but dang how much harvest has been going on? Saw one big ski that chased a white buzz bait. Threw live bait and stink bait in at least 20 holes never touched a cat. The stretch between portage and the luck seems like every legal fish has been released to the grease. I know it's been awhile since I fished it but I grew up on this body of water I do know it pretty good. What's up any ideas. One guy said its because of all the bass tourneys on the lake that they have pounded the river for yrs and every legal smallie ends up down at lake Wisconsin. Any ideas. Fish came on buzz baits, blue fox vibrax, flicker shads, river shiners, husky jerks, plastics, pork crawlers, and the old stand by rattle traps. Was a tuff day but great to get sand between my toes again!!!!!

Now for a couple fish pic's. Pretty big morning smallie followed by a double header on the donkey-fluke rig! It is my estimation that this is the 47th angler to haul in two bass on one cast with this rig in my boat over the past 5 seasons! Look up donkey rig on youtube to learn how to make them.
