Yes there are resident fish all year. IMHO the real giants come from the lake primarily.

Below 40° F
Worst trip ever on the Fox. 1 19" walleye for 3 guys 8am - 2pm. Water temp 34°, 3 gates wide open, water dirty, wouldn't call it muddy. Fished 4'-28'. They pulled the docks today. Some ice floating down river. Ramp was ice free. Commercial whitefish net up by dam. They pulled it off later on.
Just wondering if most of these walleyes up towards the dam, all head back to the Bay by late Spring? I mean, some of them stay in the river all year long, correct?
Is it possible to catch a native (fox river) that is a giant? Or are most of the big girls all from the Bay?
Thanks in advance, I'm not really sure of how it works up here.

Snagging more fish lately especially Whitefish.
Snagged plenty of Walleye as well on blades and Flicker Shads.
Very few legitimate fish these days.
Plenty out there as you can hit them on almost every cast.
Wish they would snap like they were in sep./ oct.

Well I spent the entire day on the Fox yesterday with 2 trips. The bite remains tough right now. I still was able to locate some schools of fish on the Side imaging but also it seemed like more fish were spread out.
We spent time jigging and some casting cranks at the dam.
The morning hours provided some action, I believer we boated 5 Walleye and 2 Whitefish and lost a couple hook ups and also had several short hits.
The PM proved to be like a dead sea. LOL We boated 2 Walleye lost 1 and had literally not much as far as bites.
Maybe it is my optimistic nature but I do feel like the action will pick up again more as the water continues to clear up.
I just home Mother Nature does not decide we are done with the boat.... LOL Water temps yesterday were around 39 Deg.
