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.

Yes you can but it needs to be a very shallow draft boat. Lots of big boulders in one area that will tear your prop and lower unti up. I have a john boat we take up 16 foot and I jump out in the rocky area and just pull it up river through the Boulder area. If you have a somewhat deep draw or fiberglass boat don't risk it.

Quick question for anyone familiar with lake Kegonsa. I have never fished here before and wondering if it is possible to take a boat up river from Kegonsa to Lower Mud? Thanks in advance for any insight.

Friday got out in the late afternoon and fished for a couple hrs. and got some really nice crappies and Giles. Today got out in the afternoon and the fish were still schooled up deep. The crappies that had spawned had left today but the Giles were there and almost ready to come in shallow. Threw back most of the females as they do not filet very good. Kept the males. Maybe should release the males as they protect the nest.

Went out in the kayak this morning and found schools of white bass everywhere in 22fow feeding at the surface. Was catching them on a silver zip lure and ended the day with 25 before the wind made the waves too rough. Good fishing and tight lines.

Ok, I had very little luck fishing for pannies Friday evening. Saw a big pike or muskie probably close to 48 inches. Water temp coming out of state launch in 2' was 70. There does that help? Go fish! Nice out!

Went out Friday, but the shallow water crappies are almost done. With the front that came through we went for the larger fish that spawn deeper. Got 15 that we kept and lost several at the boat as we were only using 2 LB. test. Threw back several really big females. The fish ranged from 11 3/4" to the largest a 13 1/8". Last weeks fish, fishing where they are every year spawning shallow water where everyone fishes,they ranged from 10" to 12".
