Hey guys, when do they start walleye fishing the lake. ?.. Would like to save a little of the drive coming from Milwaukee going to the wolf. This will not be till the 10th. But if the river is going to be better would do the extra 30 minutes or so. Novice walleye fisherman if you can say that. Thanks.

Maverick, When the upper pool ice cover is in such a deteriorated state that a lake level rise would not adversely affect adjacent shoreline, the lake can be refilled. The start of the refill changes each year but typically occurs near the start of April.

Looking to see if anyone has a solid date as to when they raise the water level on the lake?

No fishing report, just a lake update, most bays still iced over but will probably be open later this week.

I do not sell flies - thanks for asking.

It really is quite easy, and affordable.

I would be happy to help you begin, via PMs, if you'd like to learn.

Early in the year I like to use small flies, as small as 1" and by mid summer I am using some four times that size. Purple and gold tiny ones are my favorite early season at Eureka for example.

The neat thing about tying your own, in addition to the modest cost in materials and time, is you can create any color combination and size you get confidence in using. There is always a rainy day to do the work. I usually do a bunch during the winter too.

A bit off topic, but I was out fishing late. Stopped at a small place in Oshkosh, Rodney's Cafe, at 1 am Saturday nite. The bbq ribs were awesome! I didn't get any fish, but the food was awesome! If you fish in the area, give it a try, their page is here. http://www.rodneyscafe.com/index.html

I am in no way affiliated with the place, I just want to pass on a really good tip!

Checked out Fisherman's Rd just before noon today. The heavy south wind really did a number on the ice. Huge waves out there. Some ice sheets still visible, but I'd imagine it's piling up farther north.Few weeks and it'll all be a memory.

Down at west shore couple times today. Lots of crazy cracking and shifting sounds early. At millers bay point round noon, got to watch the ice breaking loose and shoving up on shore. At one point thought I may have to leave the point as ice was coming up on walking path. It would go for awhile then stop then start back up. Awesome to watch, still alot of ice out there but with se winds much opening up is going on. Won't be long before its wide open. Good Fishing and God Bless!

Would be a fool to take a boat out right now. Shifting ice packs. Still could be a week or so.
