FISHING REPORT
2/24/15 11:10 AM CST
Ice Depth: 18"
I fished River this weekend by fox point launch. Suprised by amount of ice. First time I fished it this yr. I didn't drill in middle of channel but along edges. Had 16-20" of ice with about - dozen holes drilled. But as others mentioned. A few days of warm weather and run off will change it in a hurry. usually once the mouth of the river opens, the river slowly opens all the way down. It doesn't take as long as u would think even w that much ice. Extended shows some days in upper 30's and 40's first couple weeks of March.

Walleyebeef, March 15th boats. I'd say the week before there'll be open water. There were wheelers and a truck or two on the river sunday.... There were trucks on the river up to like March 5th last year. Open water mid March

Fished tonight from 3:30-6. As for me. SKUNKED. As usual. And my friend only got 1 6inch eye, and a couple other hits. 22 fow. Guys were up all the way too 172 with atvs and snowmobiles. The ice is good. But you never know since it's a river with the current. My guess for ice out is no more than a month. Hopefully. Good Luck this week guys, stay warm and keep the lines Tight!

Last spring DNR checked us out and told us that where we were fishing below damn was the highest pcb content in the great state of wi.This is not a place to stock up on fish fillets.Great place to fish,not a great place to go out for fish!

Anyone asking about eating fish out of the fox, if you eat fast food like McDonalds it will probably kill you before the fish you eat out of the fox, just saying...

I work with a guy who use to do the sampling on the fox river clean up from winnebago down. His words - the amount of PCB's in the system is very alarming and would not eat anything until at least 5 years after the project is fully complete. So his reco - would not be until 2020.

I know this guy pretty well - and has no reason to state anything but the truth. For me, they are C&R out of the lower bay.

Does anyone ever have success with tip ups on the river for walleyes? I've tried about every possible setup I can think of but very rarely get a flag. Feel free to PM if you have a setup that works and you're willing to share. Thanks!

My buddy was fishing down here this past week and realized he lost his tackle and seat for a 5 gallon bucket. Was wondering if any fellow lake linkers may have found it? It had all of the tackle he owns.

Other clean ups have shown that the fish sampled after had much lower levels of PCB's within a few years. The mouth of the Fox is the last area they will work on and I think that starts this summer. Now that the "Cat Islands" project is done the weeds might start to fill in the Bay by the outlet of Duck creek. I love it when a plan starts to come together.

with the river clean up project, when will any of you start taking fish out of the river to eat? I am still suspect.

Fished from 6:00-9:00 yesterday and while i marked a few fish right at day break I didnt catch a fish. Using jigging Raps/spoons tipped with minnows or waxies, auto fisherman with jig and minnow and a tip up with medium shiner. The neighbors got a few but also said things were slow. I did see a snowmobile and an ATV on the ice this week.
