A guy drowned on the river yesterday. News said he tried swimming from shore out to another rock up around the dam but current pulled him under. And family says he never came back up. So that's what the dive team is looking for. Sorry to his family and please people be safe out there the under currents are strong and will pull you down. The Wisconsin River will take life's just like the Mississippi. Be Safe Everyone

Was up there the last 5 days and was slow to say the least. Nothing hit either from the pier or in the boat. Went to Lake Delton and caught fish and they were biting. Always a pleasure to stay at Rivers Edge as well. Cool

In the upper dells there is a huge island and lots of places where the depth is 90-100ft deep in the narrowest part it's really beautiful up there

JKenny,

That section of the Wis river is widely regarded as the "upper dells." I haven't fished those parts as aggressively as I have the lower dells (below the dam). If my memory serves me correctly when you look out from their boat launch the river is quite wide, probably the widest it's going to get in that stretch.

Personally, I would go up stream and find back channels that veer off the main body and fish any current breaks or eddies. This time of year, all of what you're looking for should be biting. Also, I've seen people stack their boats up against the rock walls and fish vertically on either side of the river. Just depends on how bad you want to get banged around out there.

Quick question, I am bring my 11 year old son and 3 year old daughter up to stay at Holiday shore Resort this weekend and I was wondering if someone would be so kind to give me a few pointers of what I should be fishing for in this section of the river? I have a boat and we typically fish walleyes, bass and crappies. Thanks Smile

Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 71° - 75° F Water Temp: 56° - 60° F
Late report from last weekend.

Saturday May 2 late morning - fished from shore between County O bend and the public boat launch that I don't know what is called (it is downstream of the County O bend and upstream from Fishermans' Luck). Minnows, crawlers, spoons, crankbaits, spinners and all I got was a redhorse on a crawler. Bad start to the season.

Saturday May 2 early evening - same spot, crawlers, minnows, jigs and twisters. 1 more redhorse squirting eggs (that was pleasant) and an 8 pound buffalo carp - not a game fish, but a great fight!

Sunday May 3 last couple hours prior to sunset - took boat out with intent of reaching County O bend. Fuel pump gave out first, then drifted while I was attending to that and hit a rock, rendering prop useless. Got exercise rowing upstream. Worth it, finally - 1 short (barely) sauger on crawler, 2 smallmouth bass (14-15 in.) on a Mepps Black Fury #1 spinner, and a baby sturgeon on a crawler; sturgeon looked to be about 19 in. Rowed back - downstream much easier!

Monday may 4 7:45-9am from shore near Dells Dam, power plant side. Crawlers, spinners, jigs. Only one sheephead to show for it.

Overall, not too bad (for me - I realize the above would be a bad weekend for some of my fellow anglers), but I am looking forward to more smallies next trip.

Good luck to all.
