The ice on Petenwell is great. 11 inches of hard stuff. Castle Rock has a lot more current than Petenwell does. Finding fish in 17 - 20 fow. Shiners.

So weekend after Christmas is pretty much shot. Question is now where to go that will be safe, I have some new Christmas presents I wanna play with. Dexter Lake is also part of the Yellow River I believe. Will this lake suffer as well?

Guys stay off the lake. As of noon today the gates at petenwell dam were still open. The wisconsin river is up about 2 foot and flowing fast. The yellow river in necedah is up 2 plus foot. Buckhorn bridge is starting to open up like it does in the spring. Guys the ice mite look safe but its not. With lots of current the ice will deteriorate from the bottom up. We lost alot of ice on petenwell and castle rock the last 3 days. Sweating

ccmedic, the yellow river is in the same drainage basin as the Wisconsin River. If water is rushing through the Pete and Castle dams it is more than likely rushing through the yellow river dam as well, the yellow river channel runs through buckhorn. If ya play with fire you're gonna get burned. This isn't a drawdown it's from all the rain and melt we had.

So here is a question for the uninformed. How does opening the WI River dam affect the Little Yellow River? From the maps I have looked at, The Turtle area is a fair distance from any of the main body current areas.

Just in about 2 hours ago. The Wisconsin river power co. and Juneau co. Scheriffs dept. has advised that they will be ramping up their out flows on (Castle rock and Petenwell Dams) due to increase of water intake from Petenwell Flowage during the next 48-72 hours.This will cause ice breaking up,ice jams, and over all unsafe conditions on Castle Rock. Ice anglers should use extreae caution. Will I think this is all to be said about safe ice on the rock or pete.

Lucky dog!

Just reschedule your trip. No sense hoping and praying for good ice on a river system. Better off waiting until it's good and thick. Plenty of other lakes to fish that do not have current running through it.

Getting worried about the ice alot of reports from petenwell saying its thinning any insight would be helpful planning on coming up there for a extended weekend on the 26th. Thanks a bunch to all the guide who have been posting on here also. Its really helpful knowing what your walking on before you get there. Keep up the good work its nice to see people that care about safety!
