Fox River DePere Voyager
I called the DNR and they said the same thing. My concern is that the NO Fishing sign is all BIG letters and the other sign is more 'Fine' Print. Fine Print that cant be read by the people on the shore who can only read the large NO FISHING sign and assume a crime is taking place. The Warden said they get calls about this all the time. The signs on the shore were vandalized so calls have been coming in on this issue. Next time I go out after work I'll explore it more.
Not a report. Just a general question. What's up with the DePere Dam? The sign says a fish Refuge no fishing but then another sign below that says off limits March 1st through the first Saturday of May?... I fished the point the shorelines in close to those power lines but I saw people on the shore casting in this quote on quote fish Refuge. As I left I talk to another guy and he was confused too if he could go in there or not. I don't fish the Fox River too much but my question is can we go in there past the signs after regular fishing season starts? Any info would be appreciated as I'd really like to get up in there and check it out but I'm nervous. Thanks for any info

Was out Tuesday afternoon/ evening for the first time on the Fox in Depere. Was just drift jigging crawlers in the deep part of channel from the Fox Point launch down to the 172 bridge. My friend caught a couple big fun hard fighting cats and a couple Walleye one lost right at boat side. Along with several Sheepshead.
