FISHING REPORT

Nice day on the Willow, lots of boats everywhere. Didn't get into the crappies, but did find some big smallies. All fish came on various cranks trolled at 1.6-1.8 mph.

I don't care what any chart says. The water was not this high in 2010. It was high but it was still a few feet lower than it is right now. This water level is crazy. they should lower it at least 4 or 5 feet. It would be perfect level.

The charts are dead wrong if they say the water was this high in 2010. That's a 100% fact.

Goodlife.... The last time the flowage had this much water at this time of the year was 2010. It was only 2 ft down on Dec. 22. You can find water level history at WVIC website. I don't think the dam is in danger because of water level in the Winter. There is usually open water in front of the dam all Winter. The draw down every Fall makes room for Spring runoff and they have all Winter to get it done. More rain today! More water tomorrow! Not what you wanted to hear.

Does anyone know how low they need to get the water level before ice forms to protect the dam? Just bought a lot with pier and usually put pier on sandy beach, but no sandy beach this year. Crying

FISHING REPORT

Fished the north end 10/7-10/9 with high winds on the first 2 days it was hard to offer the jig and minnow long enough for them to eat it. Brought up a lot of minnow heads. Each day I was able to take 10-15 walleye and several nice crappies and perch. On the 9th thing were better. The fish were larger (18" average) and the bite was steady for the entire day. Still a short bite. Nice crappies were had and I think if one were to target them a nice bag could be had. All fish came 12-15 FOW with wood present. I saw more duck hunters than fishermen and the campground launch was really nice with the high water level.

Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 71° - 75° F Water Temp: 61° - 65° F
Late report- fished the Willow 9/24-9/28. Crappie action was steady if not spectacular with 75 fish between 10.5 and 13.75 inches for the four days. At least 35 walleyes caught, but only 4 legals between 15.5 and 18 inches. A few perch and 1 large rock bass rounded out the trip. All fish caught on jig and minnow or minnow on bare hook in 20 FOW from 7 foot depth to bottom. Weather was spectacular; cold snap did not get rid of all mosquitoes yet. Can't wait to return 1st week of June next year!

Fishing was a little slow Sunday, So I hit my go to lucky stump. I caught a couple nice crappies and a few big gills when the wake of all the by passers pushed me off the stump, I went to pull anchor and to my surprise a pulled up a pole that I had pulled out of my boat about seven year ago. What are the chances of that? Back to the report, Caught some on small gulp and small leeches tight to the bottom, I forgot my worms so I didn't get to try them. Weather permitting I'm going tonight with my old lost gold medallion graphite in hand.

4 ft below max pool. That could change this weekend though, make sure you bring your rain gear.
