Fishing the last couple weeks on "The Rock" Has been good!

The white bass are very thick in the river and just south of the rail road bridge. We have been catching them pulling flies,pulling 3 ways with live bait and casting jigs tipped with large fatheads.

For the walleye we have been fishing the main river channel in deep water. A lot shorts, few keepers and some big slot fish.

Water temps have really cooled down with all the rain. Water was about 3 to 4 foot high in the river this past weekend. Gates have been open for a few days know. Lots of fast dirty water. This should move more fish around making the bite good the next couple weeks.

Good luck, Be safe

When the water is high and fast as it is now, it washes the grass and weeds from the shallow areas out onto the main lake. The wind moves them around until they gather  into large clumps. High water makes it almost impossible troll, and you even pick then up while jigging. When the gather together the resemble a door mat, only these can get 4-6 feet wide.

What do you mean by grass mats on the lake ?  Do you mean blue-green algae ?

I was out on "The Rock" this morning with Mike, Noreen, and their son Tristan. The lake is a mess right now. The water is very dirty with huge mats of grass floating all over. We jigged minnows and crawlers all morning with only "shorties", sheep's head, and catfish to show for our efforts. I will be out on "Pete" tomorrow, hopefully it's a little cleaner.


Keep a tight line!!!

Hey all- hoping someone can find me a free boat launch on the rock. Perhaps one above the dam and below? I will be coming from the oxford side of the lake- the closer to hwy 82 the better. Thanks!!!

Bill booked a 5 hour guide trip with me on Castle Rock.

We launched the boat @ 7 am and fished till noon. Water temp was 69 in the early morning and around 74 when we left the lake.

Today we fished along the river channel in 6 to 10 fow. Most of the fish came on 1/8 oz weedless jig tipped with half crawler. We manage to catch a few fish in deeper water with slip bobber,small jig and red worm.

Anyone looking to book a guide trip, i have the 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th open

Good luck, Be safe

Tim from Mauston and his friend Dick From Franklin joined me on "The Rock" this morning for a little jigging. Really nice morning, a little breeze out of the southwest and sunny. We jigged and soaked minnows on dead rods on channel edges for most of the morning. We had some "shorties", a big crappie, and all the sheeps head and catfish you wanted. Trolled for a short time and only had 1 nice small mouth. We will be out again on "Pete" on Wednesday if the weather holds. The forcast is for thunderstorms in the am.
