Head water level at the Petenwell Dam is currently a little under 2 feet below summer target levels. Both dams are running over 25,000 cfs through the gates.  There are some using Chester.s Creek launch now.

Keep a tight line!!!

Lake update....

Boat launches- Long view point Boat Launch,water is too low to  launch. Mite be good to go soon, water really has been on the rise this week.

Wilderness park Boat launch- water levels are up enough to use this launch, guys have been launch there last two days. No doc in yet as of today!

Tenth Street launch- Still ice covered, Power company is working on doc today.

Water levels are still three feet low out on the lake,but water has been on the rise all week. Lake is about half way ice free, from halls point off the "west shore" all the way to just north of bay rest off the "East shore" south is still ice covered,north is ice free. If you head out in open water towards the north, take caution there still mite be some ice floating around and with the all the big current up to the north in the river, there mite be a few big logs and trees floating out on the main lake.

Good luck, be safe!

Won't be long and the "pete" should be ice free. They have had all the gates wide open below petenwell dam since 4/20 Friday afternoon. Nekoosa also has 2 gates wide open since 4/23 Saturday, water levels were on the low side Saturday morning, Today when we hit the river water had come up 3 feet over night.

The entire northern half of the lake is wide open and looks to be ice free. If you draw a line from long view point across the lake to Monroe, South of this line all the way down to the petenwell dam is sill ice covered, North of the line all the way to the Nekoosa dam is ice free. 

Good luck,be safe!

A lot of guys call this past week asking about water levels,current and ice conditions on the main lake. I drove around this past weekend fishing and checking out the "pete". Power company has been working on a few boat launches with the water levels being low.10th street boat launch off the west shore looks to be just about done,long view they are still working on. looks like the power company dug out the sand that was pushed in from the ice this past winter. Over half of the lake is still ice covered, from long view north the lake is open in big areas with ice still floating around. long view south to the petenwell dam is still ice covered. sounds like warmer temps are on there way this week, this should get some ice and snow melted and get some good flow going

Have more questions about the flowage or booking of guide trips feel free to give me a call on the number below.

Good luck, Be safe!

If I take 4th Street off of G to the dead end witch is near yellow banks, is that a public parking area and can one shore fish the channel from that spot? I found it on Google maps. Just not sure about it.

Might want to check the -Wisconsin River Below Petenwell Dam, Juneau County- thread if you mean the Petenwell Dam.
