FISHING REPORT
6/14/15 2:05 AM CST
Conditions: Raining Water Temp: 71° - 75° F
Got out about 7:00 am Saturday morning hit the rock pile 1st thing slammed a 10 3/4 gill then drifted the whole rock pile and nothing. Moved over. Y the sate park for about 2 and picked up 2 hammer Handel northern. So back to the rock pile. Working 5-7 feet of water on on the lake side of the pile 4 hours latter with 10 gills in the live well we decided to try and troll for white bass white bass where on fire getting double and tripples. Then in 20 feet of water about 2 feet down a 9 inch gill grabbed one of our baby reefrunners. The bite is oh so slow but the gills are nice sized. All gills came on ice jig and waxies or bar hook and waxies

Out Saturday from 3:30 till 7:30 pm. One 15" Northern, and little else. Fished from the piers out to 12 feet of water. All over the lake, with red and white nail-tails, Bimbo skunks, with a wax worm at times, also some leaf worms. Didn't see the Rocket bobbers move hardly at all, except for a weed here or there. Also hit the rock pile, and this was with 3 guys in the boat! The DEAD SEA. Won't be going back there for some time. Waubesa next time.

Fished from 11:00 til 2:00. Moved around a lot to find the fish. Got a few crappie and yellow bass. Its been a tough bite so far this year with all the fronts moving through. All the crappies today were females 11" to almost 12" full of eggs. All caught in 12 foot of water.

Anyone know if the Lake Kegonsa landing in Williams bay is open? It was closed last year I guess to shallow.

FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Partly Sunny
Report from Tuesday, started on the south end of the lake casting or bass and pike. Very slow, two legal pike and 1 decent largemouth.

Report from today, started on the south end of the lake again due to the wind, looking for panfish. Nothing. One legal pike on a crappie minnow, switched gears and tried to salvage the day by fishing whitebass in the river. No whitebass just lots of carp. I think the weather really has the whole system screwed up. I will be out again.

Waiting for lower unit repairs so I did some looking around Kegonsa this morning with the trolling motor. Went from Fish Camp to Springers and was surprised the only fish I saw was one Bullhead until I got to the houses then saw a few Crappies here and there. Thought the carp would be moving in (water temp from 3' to 21' was 64°F) but they hadn't in the shallows. Then went up the river for a ways. Saw quite a few White Bass (thought that's what they were), some Crappies and some smaller Large Mouth.

Point taken Fishlovme,I know that they can spawn in deeper water, but normal spawning for gills is 4 to 5 feet of water in the shallows, and I did see some beds, but nothing on them due to all the carp swimming around. I'll just fish Waubesa and Turvilles. I know where to find them there!

I've seen gills spawn in 10 feet of water in this lake. I've also seen very few, if any, beds in shallow water on this lake. I know some make the trip to upper mud and spawn in there, others spawn in deeper water. I've heard bluegills spawning in deep water on other lakes too, so I'm not too surprised you didn't find any shallow.

For years I have had the hardest time finding the Gills on there beds on Kegonsa and couldn't figure out why until this morning. That lake is so over run with carp it is crazy, I mean they are everywhere the Gills would normally be spawning this time of year! No wonder the only time I ever get any is in the deeper water (7-10 ft)

There is a shallow boat launch in McFarland that can get you to Lower Mud Lake as well. I made the trip once, but was using a trolling motor. I was the spotter up front and my friend drove the boat. We had to meander around some larger sized boulders, but it wasn't too bad. Maybe try this route? Haven't been there in about 5 or 6 years, but I'm sure the boulders are in the same places.

Thanks for all the info regarding the river to Lower Mud. I checked out Bing Maps and think I have a good idea where the rocks are. Decided to hit Lake Wisconsin in the rain today instead but would still like to get up to Lower Mud this spring/summer if possible.

Nope just above the bridge towards the bend like mendota mentioned. I have no idea where you had 3 feet of water it was 12-18" at best all last summer through there. We were up 2 weeks ago and the clarity was good to see but there was no alge yet. With all this rain the alge will blow up and visibility is done for the rest of the year.

The boulder areas are just above Dyreson road, and are readily visible in Bing map's Bird's eye view.

Also visible is the best path through, if I'm not mistaken.

Amazing how detailed those aerials can be at times.

If I recall, one of those areas is the remains of an ancient fish weir.

I thought the boulder area was between Waubesa and lower mud? I take my boat regularly from Keg to Lower Mud and never hit a boulder….of course it is slow no wake the entire way. last trip up river I never saw water less than 3' deep. Last summer though.
