Checked out the lake on the way home from the "River" Today!

Lake is just about wide open, From halls point north is wide open, Looks to be ice free all the way across to Petenwell county park. South of halls point still has ice all the way down to the dam. Won't be long, Few windy days from the north should open the big lake up!

Doc is not in yet at wilderness park!

Power company has been out fixing Boat launches last few days. 10th street looks good to go once the lake is up to summer pool.

Now booking open water trips for the spring walleye run and the rest of the open water season.

Still have April 6th,7th,11th,12th,13th and 14th open.

Good luck, Be safe

Checked a few launches and other areas up the west shore today!

From long view point north is wide open, Few big chunks of ice floating around.

Wilderness park launch is ice covered. Few open areas around halls point.

10th street launch is still ice covered as well.

Long view and 10th street launches, Will need work once the lake is up to summer time pool. Ice really pushed up a lot of sand, rocks and parts of the concrete slabs.

Won't be long now, With this weekends heavy rain the lake should be open by this time next week or sooner.

Now booking open water trips for the spring walleye run and the rest of the open water season.

Good luck, Be safe

The lakes have been on a slow rise for the past week or so, but with more than an inch of rain in the forecast from Adams north to Rheinlander for Thursday evening through Saturday morning they may come up a little faster. With the fresh water and the increased flow it should get the fish on the move. If you’re looking for nice minnows, Matt at the Petenwell Sport Shop has good sized Tuffy’s.

Keep a tight line!!!

Fished in the horrific winds on Wednesday but knowing that we would be sheltered a little me and my dad walked down the hill around yellow banks and was rewarded with this pig!! The only fish we caught but was well worth it!! Caught and released using a shiner on a floating jog head!! Probably around 26-27" er!! The water levels were fluctuating daily!! Some times you could see the sand bars and sometimes you wouldn't but either way the flowage is really low!! Good luck the best is to come!!

With last nights heavy rain/wind and today's high winds the lake is really starting to open up.

Off the west shore from long view point south all the way down to the dam is ice covered. East shore from monroe south all the way down to the dam is still ice covered. Looked like there mite be a little ice still along the east shore north of monroe. Still a lot of big ice chunks floating around out if front of the lure and just south of the yellow banks.

"Now Booking" open water trips for the spring walleye run and the rest of the open water season!

Good luck, Be safe

Fished Sunday on probably the only "safe" ice left on The Pete.  Walked out from Adams Co launch.  About 20 people out there.  Drilled my first hole with about 4 inches of solid ice, then it was complete mush for the last 9 inches.

Caught some nice crappies, a few cats, and some shorts.

Walking off you could tell that was the last day to ice fish..

Drove all around the "Pete" today.

West shore

10th street boat launch is still ice covered.

Wilderness park is still ice covered.

Long view point has really opened up this past week. The heave that went to the east is opened up couple hundred yards to the east. Ice around the boat launch has opened up a lot since last Friday. Couple big areas wide open north of long view.

Yellow banks/north end of lake is wide open. From yellow banks to the east side to the supper club is wide open. Water is still very low, A lot of logs/trees sticking up.

Both boat launches are being used in Nekoosa, Couple boats at each today. Today they had one gates wide open, Water was flowing very good. Water below the dam is still very low. Boards are even out on the dam for about 50 yards and the water is flowing over the top very fast.

East side of lake

Tube at devils elbow is wide open, Guys fishing the west side of road today! 

Chesters creek is open few guys looking for carp to shoot today!

Dirty oar supper club is open out in front in the channel to the north west. few big open areas to the south, North of the lure bar.

From the lure bar south, Past the Petenwell county park down south towards the dam is ice covered.

With the warmer temps,rain and good current flow the ice will go very fast from the bottom up. Guys play it safe, Just stay off the ice. You mite have 16' of ice but couple feet away it mite be 2" A lot of the ice the last 2 weeks has been very soft. I haven't seen anyone on the lake since early last week.

Ice season is over

Now booking trips for the spring walleye run and the rest of the open water season.

Good luck, Be safe
