Strong winds forecast for tomorrow. The remaining ice might be moving around pretty good. Good luck but be safe.

Nope. Mostly open water on the main lake from Oshkosh to Menasha. Still some in the bays and some rogue ice moving around out. I can't say about south of Oshkosh, but given the reports after Sunday's blow, I suspect there's still quite a bit of ice on the south end.

It is up six inches in the last seven days, due to the heavy rains. I expect a bit of that may retreat again tho, until the ice melts for the year. Rather than temperatures +20 degrees below normal, I sure would have liked this week to be +20 above normal.

Sad

Huh... That explains how I smacked my prop pretty good last later Oct. going through water I went through just fine all summer. Do they drop it by close to 2' ? Sure seemed like it. Over a foot anyway! Costly way to learn... Hopefully they are filling the pool back up now!

An interesting short video about the annual draw down of Lake Winnebago.

Lake Winnebago controlled water levels

Here's another report. The lake is finally coming back up. Cowling bay was all iced in surprisingly but outside the bay was open. Asylum looked opened from CTY rd a.

Hey Jzzz, Looks like the bridge sank, no sign of it anywhere. Crying Wow must be in between seasons, impatience is growing. Let the venting continue, as long as no ones getting hurt. Good Fishing All!

Why wouldn't you want ice reports to decide whether you can FISH on Lake Winnebago w/o sinking your boat?

I would like to add another ice report: ice from FDL to Pipe as far as you can see on the East Shore...

Let the bashing begin
