Drago input made me look at Gauge Readings on www.lakepuckaway.com site. The boards at the Princeton Dam were removed: Year 2011-October 21st; 2012-October 22; 2013-October 26. Memorandum of Understanding with Wisconsin DNR states boards will be off by October 31 of each year. I would think about 3 weeks yet, depending on the coming fall weather. Think WALLEYES CURT-T-OH-"HAPPY BIRTHDAY"-ALEX

Water levels are slightly higher than normal summer pool. The water quality is excellent with good visibility. Just remember to enjoy the height as they will be pulling the boards soon for our seasonal winter draw down.

Tried Puckaway yesterday. Man, lot's of bird life on the lake and upriver. Pelicans, comorants, gulls, egrets, herons, kingfishers, ducks...nice to see. Anyhow, not much doing in the lake for us. Sheep and whitebass. We ventured upriver. Smaller northern, crappies, whitebass, perch, and a 24" channel cat that hammered my Flicker Shad!! Skeeters (not the boats) were horrendous at dusk!! Others seemed to be doing pretty well with the crappies in the wood on the river.

I would think the mouth of the river would get better as fall sets in. I've always thought about fishing it for northerns and walleyes in the late fall. Had early ice success there, I would think they are there before the ice forms. Anyone ever try it? Thoughts?

Fished with Curt-T-O; 1 Smally,; 1 Large M., 2 Northern. West end, weeds out to open water. Water Temp 71 degrees. Clear water. Hogger: Use a nice $9.00 artifical bait and I'll guarantee a Large Northern Pike will make it theirs. You named good spots to try. Remember Lake Puck 32'rule/one fish. Glad your fish/release. Sign of fall: Cormmrants rolling along Lake surface on the minnow/fingerling hunt. Joined in the middle were the Pelicans and circling in the air the Seagulls cleaning up the left overs. Something to see, can't get that on hand-held electronics. Gotta Love 'da Puck. Big Smile Smile Big Smile

Coming up fishing next week and wanted to know where I might have the best luck for big pike. I release all pike. I have fished here before and had some good luck getting some pike over 35in. I normally use large suckers or dead blue gills I get in the lake. I had my best luck near the river and channel mouth. I was thinking along the reeds and those same spots? Feel free to PM. Thanks for any help I enjoy seeing those big fish swim away and ready to fight another day.

Fished the river from the mouth to about 1/2 mile in nothing. I was tossing 2 color flicker shad and had night crawlers set up but no hits in about an hour. Moved back to the lake and parked off Haystack point in about 2.5 of clear water with nice weed growth and picked up 6 walleye in about an hour all under sized.

1 hit a bronze flicker shad the others were on night crawler bits

I was actually going for catfish for my son but the walleye liked them.

Good day out there.

Got to say the weed growth looks real strong this year definitely making a come back. I have to say it's got to do with the carp removals the past few years. Lake looks real good and healthy

Reports of catfish eating dead carp on Koshkonong. Lots of catfish in the Fox system. Maybe this will turn out to be an answer to the carp problem?

Coming to a Lake near us. WIS DNR has reporter a virus that is new to Wisconsin waters affects common carp. Koi herpes virus not harmful to humans or other fish has found its way in Horicon Marsh, Lake Sinissippi. Possibly Silver Creek, tributary to Rock River in Watertown. Carp die off may occur when water temps are between 71-79. Carp tissue samples were sent to LaCrosse Fish Health Center and Michigan State Univ. Horicon die-off carp had damage gills, sunken eyes and enlarged spleens. This virus was found in New York, Michigan and Ontario. If it is observed on Puck call Laura Stemick Thompson (60Cool 770-8084 or (920) 387-7876. With temps dropping may not happen this year here, but eventually may find its way into Puck. Tons of floating dead carp-yuck! Go to Wis DNR site for story Puke Puke

Whiskers: Yes off of Fox Court. At the 4-way stop sign turn left and you go north onCo. Hwy C. back out to WIS. 23. If you turn right you'll head to the entrance of the "Good Old Days. Go straight ahead past Lake Arrowhead campgrond and you'll get to a sign on the right, "Apuckawa"landing or launch. Just west of the blacktop entrance is a private road call "Toepfer", dont use that one. A long blacktop lane leads to Puckaway and boat launch, restrooms and picnic tables. Very nice. At the launch is a voluntary donation box. Cool Cool Cool

Brian Wi: You can fish from the pier/dock at the IDNR Public Landing: "Apuckawa" Public Launch. Nice shady picnic area/nice restrooms. Located east of Arrowhead Campground. Take HWY 23 east of Montello turn right onto County "C" at east edge of Montello. Public landing maybe about 6 miles east. About 5 miles you'll come to a 4-way stop. Go straight east. Turn right onto pave entrance to landing. Well marked sign. Sure the way catfish are biting you'll have luck. Have fun. Welcome to Puck.Wink
