Fished the river on Tuesday.  Very few people fishing.  Water level seemed to have dropped a foot since most recent high.  Launch was in good condition.  Fished down river from the launch.  Anchored and casted into deeper holes with no luck.  Caught a couple drifting and vertical jigging along a deep stretch of shoreline.   

DNR was tagging upstream from the launch and had netted about 150 walleye (their number not mine).  Found most of the fish in a shallow area just upstream and west of the railroad bridge.  So there are still some eyes in the river, just not hoards of them.

Fish have been tagged in Menominee and caught in little bay less than 48 hours later. The bay population is extremely healthy. Anyone who says different has an extreme lack of knowledge of the fishery. End of story.

Last year my buddy was fishing in Door County caught his first tagged fish. Sent info to DNR it was tagged in the Fox River in 2014. They don't stay there they move.

Flood warning until Tuesday. Water is very high. Most fish will hold below the dam due to the colder water Temps. Dropped 6 degrees in the past 24 hours. Still fish at mouth with hard spawn in them.

Fished the Peshtigo dam tailwaters the past couple days with my ol' pal Ron Barefield.  Caught a PILE of fish, 60% suckers, 40% walleyes, 85% of everything foul hooked. We hooked up about every 10th cast for 2 days. My biggest LEGAL 'eye was a 25 inch male.  About 85% of all eyes tussled with were males, most actively milting. Most productive baits were Rat-L-Trap and Husky Jerks, mostly firetiger pattern. Out of probably 100 fish Ron and I hooked probably 12-15 in the mouth and therefore legal, with at least that many more hooked with in an inch of the mouth--but outside the mouth--so not legal. It was essentially elbow-to-elbow combat fishing, but most folks understood the ettiquette of wade fishing rivers--standing essentially in a line, casting directly out in front of where you were standing. Once numbers increased to about 40 anglers on each side of the river, there were several anglers who didn't adhere to these principles and messed folks up within casting range downstream on a regular basis. Great to fish with an old friend again. We have a combined age of over 130 years, giving even more meaning to this trip.

You can launch, for a fee, at the ramp next to the city garage in the town of Peshtigo.
