No water is going thru the fish station as of today. Fished Sat. am for three hours... got nothing. Did a spin out to deeper water outside the "can". Water temps dropped to 50 for a while by a slick, then I steered into a scum line full of weeds and stuff. Had to clean up and start over but it didn't matter. Some guys at the cleaning station had 4 hits and one fish.
Thanks Otter Man, that is sad, I was pretty excited to come and try it, fishing is not nearly like it was 30 years ago here in central Wisconsin, I think the problem here is pollution in the water from farming,there is not nearly the game fish that used to be here,now it is more rough fish.
It wont happen, stocking has been drastically cut and very few fish go up the river anymore. I used to catch many every fall starting late August,this year 0 and I tried again today in the Kewaunee and Annaphee rivers. Saw no fish jumping and no hits. Very sad as this great part of fishing since the early 1970's appears to be nothing but a memory
Although I didnt get out, I have a place at algoma that allows me to watch the piers. On monday one fisherman had a string of 3 kings. One charter went 6 for 8 on Monday night. 3 to 6 boats working directly out front, most of the day time, from monday through when i left thursday am. Pulled my boat for the year.
