Fished "The Rock" Oct 4th and 5th. We spent the overcast Oct 4th afternoon working the River edges from the Petenwell dam and south until dusk. We threw a lot of top water and ended the day with a mixed bag of Northern, Small-mouth and some good size White Bass. 

On the 5th we had to wait for the heavy morning rain to pass. We took to trolling the main channels in the big lake and the bite was on before the front passed through.  We boated a bunch of Smalleyes and a few nice size Whitebass. After the front passed, the fishing slowed but we were blessed with a beautiful 67 degree sunny October afternoon. Water Temp maintained a tight range in the low 60s both in the river and main channels.

The fish had an appetite for the "perch" color lures. All went back to fight another day.

Good Luck.

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!!!
