Fished the Fox River at DePere, Monday 12/5/16.  Caught and released 10 flatheads up to 39.5" (32 lbs).  Biggest were 39.5, 37.75 and 37.5".  All on spinning rods and 10# test.  It's a blast.  We saw one other boat all day!  We do this a couple of times a year.  Longtime members of the Okauchee Fishing Club (ofcfish.com).  Our club welcomes anyone looking to expand their fishing horizons.

Don't think I could have planned a worse day to be on the water. SE winds made boat control interesting. Three of us fished from the dam to about a quarter mile out into the lake in the shipping channel. Marking a lot of fish everywhere we went. Lots of bait balls down river and even snagged a couple shad while jigging by the mouth. Only scratched up two legals at 17 inches (released) above the 172 bridge and two white fish. The white fish were very thick up below the dam and after snagging a bunch we moved down. Tried everything from rigging live bait to trolling to jigging and casting cranks. Jigging rapalas at the head of deep holes seemed to be where we had the most bites. Maybe one more trip next week. It's a long drive from Wisconsin Rapids when the Wisconsin River is pretty hot right now.  Thanks for the info early guys!

Water temp was 41.5 Saturday, current flow is normal and water clarity is pretty good as well

Would any of you guys that have been out recently be willing to share what the current water temp is? I'm heading over today regardless but it will help me decide where to start. Thanks.

Hello guys,

My guess is that with the bay water still being relatively warm for this time of year, there hasn't been a huge rush of fish in the river. As the water continues to  below 40° you should see more fish show up. Plus remember with the amount of shad in the system right now, there is alot of competition for your bait to get bit. 

I would suggest looking further down river at the mouth or even out the channel into the bay. My experience has been the fish tend to stage here till the water gets colder.

Hope this helps.

We have had great luck in the past throwing cranks up by dam and jigging all over the place but the last two years have been very tough! I'm not sure what's going on other than a ton of bait/shad around? We have fished the river right up to it freezing, 100-200 walleye weekends (all catch/release) but not lately

Fished all day yesterday and caught 3 white bass and about 10 or so small channel cats. Jigging minnows. Casted up by the dam, nothing going for me up there. 

Question, am I to late to be fishing the fox in the fall for walleye?my wife thinks I am crazy to still be fishing! 

I usually have my boat put away by this point but I thought I would push it and see if I could contact some fall walleye. 

Anybody have any good experience fishing late November early December on the Fox?

tight lines.

Worked hard today and got 3 walleyes, several white bass, 2 whitefish and 1 nice smallmouth. Pretty disappointing day with the walleyes, thru cranks and did a bunch of jigging from 3-30' from the dam to the mouth with not much to show. Docks are out at Fox Point but no problem launching, water is fairly clear with a nice current.
