Hi everyone, I am new to Stevens Point and am looking to do some fishing this winter. I am familiar with some places to access the river backwaters, but because I am not familiar with the water flow, I am looking for advice on what areas are potentially unsafe. I have checked out Red Bridge, the pipes, Rusty's, and the River Road landing. I am not looking for where to fish, I will put the work in to find where they are. What I am looking for is if there are any generally unsafe ice near those access points or is there a risk of walking out to far or in the wrong direction and getting close to the main river waters. I will be on foot, no ATV or heavy gear.

I appreciate any help or advice you are willing to give. If I drown while fishing this close to Christmas, my wife will kill me. If you would prefer to private message me, that works for me.

Thanks a lot, and good luck this winter!

Went out for a quick walleye evening-bite. They hit hard right at night fall for about 30 minutes. 3 small ones, one keeper. Left the ice at about 5:15

Almost more work than what it was worth, but it felt good to get out after taking last week off.

Went to red bridge, caught a decent sized shiner, used him on a tip up, nothing. No other fish.

Checked out the Point dam, 1 1/2 gates open. I don't think it will freeze this winter.

A few more from this morning, 9 kept with another 8 back swimming. Largest fish is 9-3/4" all on very small jigs & live bait. Another day tomorrow to spend a few morning hours searching for another meal. Thanks again to the guys from DH Custom Rods, the Seven Deuce is an awesome rod.

Been slow with the high pressure the last week but found some decent size fish this morning without much of a walk. 8' of water with a small jig & waxies worked the best. Tried several combos, fish just were pretty lethargic. Giver a try again tomorrow after we enjoy these tonight.

I have been fishing off river road for the past couple weeks and it was ok but the past 3 days it has been a joke. Im done waisting my time down there but its like any other place when they r biting good everyone and their mother will be there pounding it hard. Now its time to find some other spots. Hope every one is having a good year ice fishing so far

Nice eye, pretty good for the river in Point. A good jaw spreaders, forceps and timely response to a flag are important to getting those hooks out as well.

23" on the river. First Walter of the year for me through ice. Spent an hour on the ice and called it quits after I pulled this one up and released it.

Hey I'm new to the area and in need of some guidance. Don't know any places that are good or worth trying. I've heard of Redbridge but have no idea of the location. Would like to get on some gills and crappies the most. So any help would be extremely appreciated. -Thanks

Ice Depth: 8" Conditions: Cloudy
Targeted Crappie & Gills on backwaters, kept 7 around 9", suspended at 8-10'. I'm new to area, from Minnesota, and I have zero experience ice fishing river waters, I would like to target walleyes if anyone has suggestions. I saw 4 vehicles on the ice out there a ways from Lakeside Bar, which was a bit of shock. I heard 14" of ice (not verified!!!).
