males don't finish milting until the females spawn google it ! they generally milt for a week after!
Peshtigo River, Marinette County
MOON PHASE (26%)
Fished yesterday and today early morning. Got to the parking lot by the dam this morning at 6am and barley got a spot. Will be an absolute zoo this weekend, temp when I got there was 23. Fished pretty far down from the dam, got a 22" male yesterday and a 21" today, both done with the spawn. Water is up about a foot from last week and so is the current. Launch in town is good, as of yesterday the launch off BB had some big snow drifts and I could see where some trucks had gotten stuck, don't know about the launch out by the mouth.
Good luck and bring your patience your going to need it.
Agree with the comments on going for the enjoyment, I more meant from a fish-ability stand point. As in will the launches be usable, the water fishable heights with the blizzard. Doesnt seem anyone fished today with the nicer weather, maybe tomorrow there will be some actual fishing reports with another nice day planned.
Water levels a week out are unpredictable with too many factors coming into play. WeenPhishin, check your regs on when the Musky season opens on the Peshtigo river. The greatest question ever asked, "would it be worth it to...?" It's always worth it! That doesn't mean you will be catching a fish every cast though. Give it a shot and take every trip for what it's worth. Good luck all.
