Not sure where all the open water is that u are refering to.  As for reports from my side..most parks are locked up yet with very small pockets of water accesable.  Hit below the damn and it was a bunch of dink cigar size eyes..and carp galore.  Tried off G..a couple days and nights..notta...dont waste your time..as for the good old days of people pounding the lake for crappies..that has been on the down ward cycle as alot of die off with lack of oxygen for this shallow lake...talked to a few wardens and lake front owners over the past few years about what used to be one heck of a walleye and crappie factory has been declining rapidly over the past few years...a resource can only take so much when it comes to harvest as well.  Fox lake is another example...fish just dont grow big over night..it takes 8 -10 years or more up here to obtain a decent growth for a crappie.  I have been following the high water hatch we had back when the lake flooded back in 2008..that was a phenominal year for hatches..and have watched those crappies grow year after year..there are far from as many as what once existed out of that hatch which are big but far and few.  Consistant pounding from people comming from far and wide day in and out will allways be the main factor..on top of what nature dishes out...fish it as you like as we all like to fish..but keep a good thing a good thing when u have it..and dont give out location as to give the remaining spawners a chance to replenish this once great fishery.(  The few i did catch i kept for crappie burritoes.)was way off the beaten path..but slow was an understatement.  One small walleye about 14 inches and let 2 crappie bigger than 13 go to give this lake hope. THE spot i fished where i actually saw sign of fish was again very off the beaten path..I have been shore fishing this lake for Many a year and just have done my research..alot of mud and work to get to these...any one else have any input on this lake?  I would like to hear if I Am only one of a few who have watched the decline of this lake.

Plenty of open water on Beaver dam. Above the dam might have ice/slush problems though. Water will be very cold and fish will be finicky!

The lake is wide open at the north end near Mill Creek, from shore to about 200 yards out and all the way past the point. Maybe I will push the row boat in this weekend. Maybe tonight...

Even though it takes me only 20 minutes to drive there I still find this site helpful in deciding whether to expend the effort to fish directly above or below the dam, near bridges with current, or downstream. https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?cb_00045=on&cb_00060=on&cb_00065=on&format=gif_mult_parms&site_no=05425912&period=&begin_date=2017-02-15

For any without much experience fishing the area, days with low flow are usually very tough.

Thats kind of what I was thinking.  I have never caught one before it was cool to catch something different :)

Justinm,

Hard to see detail but it looks like a form of creek chub.

Lots of people making the drive from Milwaukee to fish the dam with this warm weather.  Just wanted to save you guys the trip the water is extremely low and the fishing is very slow.  Video shows BD at 3:29 we struggled to catch anything at all.  A few other local spots are featured on this video but the fish have just not moved up any of these rivers yet.

No ice above the dam. Still a significant amount of ice off of G by kwik trip. River was open & didn't see anything but a buffalo caught. Dam was closed.
