The WB are NOT done,  not even close.  Every single Female i saw saturday had eggs and there were five,  5 gallons buckets full.  I don't know what people are trying to pull,  but the river is plenty big for everyone.  The WB are a week behind with that cold front that came through.  This week and weekend should be excellent.  Could even be the best weekend yet.  It's hard to beat two 120 qt coolers full,  but I can't see it being done any time soon.

I had water temps at 66.4 saturday around 7pm

Many good days ahead yet, most are full of semi-hard eggs,so spawning needs to happen yet. Picked up two walleyes (small males) and 86 W.B. on Saturday.

Definitely alot of fishing ahead! Fished from Fremont to New London this weekend all females had eggs. (See pic) I was very surprised. Also, I have never seen them so picky. Had to have a lively shiner and split shot to really do well. Cranks and spinners with green and silver did ok.

Fished Gills to Fremont. Appears most major spawning is over. We caught all males and small females. Spinners in the shallows along wood.

Got lunch in Fremont. Great burgers at The Bridge. Be back next year....

We fished both Saturday and Sunday.  We stared at Guths and worked our way downriver to just past Gills Landing.

Saturday morning started out a bit slow, but by the afternoon we found lots of fish. 

You know the fish are biting when my wife puts her book down and grabs a fishing pole.  She is more of a catcherman than a fisherman...

We were pitching Carolina rigs tipped with fatheads toward shore off of the deeper breaks and jigging it back slowly. 

Also met up with my cousin and his family and took their kids out for a few hours Saturday evening.  They each caught some White Bass and we finished the evening at the Fremont Hotel with a pizza.


Just a great weekend.  The males were milking all over the place.

The ones that say don't believe all on here I agree; I will tell you the bite is not over,, They lie and are so full of it.. The fish are starting to spawn because the temps of the water keeps going up and will continue to from the last few weeks of cold weather and rain that slowed the move and dropped them into the holes. now they are coming up into tthe shallows....

WalknOnWater is one that says don't bother they are done and ending is so full of it and don't know what he's doing I guess and wants the whole river to himself.. Really just a bunch of lies...

The run is not almost over. The fish are full of eggs and most years you can get em till June and even after that if your willing to follow them to Oshkosh. The cold weather last weekend delayed there spawn.  People are catching lots of fish from Red Banks and up. The further up, the better it gets.

True report. I went fishing solo on Tuesday the 17th and Thursday the 19th.

Tuesday in about 6 hrs caught 10 WB all males (no eggs). Water temp was 57 to 59 it was hard to find them or make them to bite. Mainly fishing from 8 to 15 ft of water pulling flies with or without minnows, plain hook with minnows, dragging jigs and twister tails. Also, I had to move a lot.

Thursday it was a different story with the water temp being in most places 61 to 64 the fish were very active. In about 4 hrs I caught 38 WB all females full of eggs, some soft but the majority were still hard. I didn't have to move a lot. I was using a wolf river set up with a plain hook and a minnow, as soon I found them I switch to green and yellow twister tail to catch the mos active fish. Mainly fishing 7 to 2 ft of water this time. 

I believe the river still is going to be fishable for another week or so. Those WB they have to get their thing done and come back to the lakes and that takes time.

PS. Thanks to all this guys that are always willing to share their fishing knowledge posting true fishing reports. Those reports are very valuable info. One last thing I can say.  There is "always" fish for every one that is willing to try and experiment.  Good luck to all!

Was there with my husband for white bass. Fishing was good during the day and at night. Food was great at Wolf River diners. It has a new owner who is also the chef. Broasted chicken, stuffed French toasts and blue gill are must try. And homemade pies too! Glad we did not go Ted's, skeptical when the place was quiet at dinner time.

What a beautiful day on the water yesterday, tons of boats on the water, some spots more congested than others. Was out from 11-4 and caught 20 white bass. Both anchoring with a minnow tipped fly and also drifting dragging bottom with a minnow on a 1/8oz jig. Saw plenty of fish caught by others as well. Was a fun day out there.

Thanks for your reply. I don't think I've ever fished the Wolf river that was any slower, it makes me think different tactics are in order. On the 20th we caught several good size males that were milking, for what that's worth, it was just great to be out on the river. As for the wind I've always figured it as a negative, drifting I can see where it could be an advantage. I've done most all my walleye fishing on the Wisconsin river Petenwell to DuBay. It's great to hear that Chico's will assist with the boat launch, an old school blast from the past, hat's off to them. I plan on checking out Weather Underground, again great info. The best in your quest for the elusive golden eye, the best tasting fish of all imho.
thanks again SanderMan

Back to the white bass.
Does anyone care to speak to the tactic of ripping the bait through the water? It would  be advantageous to discuss various methods, we could all put more tools in our bag of tricks.

Hockeybob,  that there is funny!!!!

Pitching a spoon between docks in 4fow is keeping the rods bent. It's an awesome night/morning to be on the river. Time to pack up soon before all the traffic kicks in.
