September kicks off what should be a good fall bite.

Crappies have been easier to catch because of the lower water. Deeper trees and docks with jigs tipped with minnows. Fish are starting to school up a little more but its still early so the trick is to move around.

White Bass - The rock wall and general area has a couple nice schools of white bass around. They are running bigger in size than this spring. Early morning or before is dark as they will start to feed and the water will erupt.

Smallmouth - They are still in summer patterns but have been easier to catch. Top water poppers on rock and seawalls and tubes in current. Early morning/late night are still the best times.

Largemouth - Backwaters that have deeper water are the key. Topwater frogs are a lot of fun but don't over look the weed lines with poppers. Most of the back waters are running pretty warm so look for the shaded shores or thicker weeds.

Pike - Poygan has produced some larger pike but the river has good for action. Most are being caught by accident from shore from anything from worms to live bait.

Perch/Panfish - the best bite is right after or during rain which has not been much. Most are are adjacent to bays and creeks as well in Partridge Lake.

Walleye - Crawlers dragged in middle of channel is still the best method. The numbers are not always there but most are 20+. It is also a good way to pick up a bonus channel cat.

Colder nights and shorter days only means better fishing. White bass are already being caught in Winneconne so its shaping up to be a good fall run.

Not from the area but if there is anyone that has a decent size boat (I'm a big guy) or preferably a pontoon that they would take a group of us out during the fall white bass run please get ahold of me. We'd be happy to pay for the gas in your boat and buy you lunch and possibly dinner.

My friend and I want to make a day of of fishing the wolf. We really only know 2 shore spots so if anyone could offer some help on catching some smallies and maybe if we're lucky some whities, walleyed, or pike thrown in there. Don't need ur secret spots just places we can go that are easy enough to find. I leave for Colorado on Tuesday so I want one last hoorah.

"including the Mississippi River, and portions of the Wisconsin, St. Croix, Wolf, and Fox Rivers "

@ jbara - Doesn't need to be two miles wide. Once the rule stated "including" it negated the two mile requirement for those waters listed after it.

On a river as "narrow" as the Wolf is at most points downstream of New London, one boat could be anchored in such a way as to "Impede navigation". This would be especially true if the LE understands the rule to leave "Two lanes" open at any given time. Not sure on the last one, but very often some leniency is given to the LE to interpret the rule as they see it. Of course, the captain's attitude will go a looong way toward determining if the LE writes a citation or not.

Wolf River (to the dam in Shawano I believe) is considered part of the Winnebago chain and that's what makes it federal waters. The sheriff that pulled my dad over for a random check told him that it's federal waters and since his boat was over 16 feet long, it required flares and a sounding device. that's all I remember.

Bago system - including portions of Fox and Wolf Rivers ARE Federal Waters. From the WI DNR: "Federal waters include: Coastal waters; the Great Lakes (Lake Michigan and Lake Superior); territorial seas (Lake Winnebago); waters which are two miles wide or wider and are connected directly to one of the above, including the Mississippi River, and portions of the Wisconsin, St. Croix, Wolf, and Fox Rivers "

Please direct to where the Wolf River is two miles wide.

Got ya. I thought you were referring to one boat by itself. I agree, it would be An issue fora bunch of boats to congregate making navigation difficult....

2cthetruth, congrats on an awesome day. Great mixed bag, and I'm sure everyone had a lot of fun.

As for the law I cited, that's a direct copy/paste from the regs. As I preceded the statement, it has NOT been enforced, though they could. As you stated, if they could clearly maneuver around you, its not an issue. When 10 boats clog the main channel and an accident occurs, multiple citations may be given - including the anchored party. I witnessed this circumstance on a different river about 6 years ago. The anchored party thought they were completely exempt from any fault. After a review that the navigation channel was blocked by multiple; they were all cited in addition to the boat that was driven recklessly. Point is know the laws - don't assume.

FISHING REPORT

Well, went out yesterday and had a pretty good time. Had my soon to be 10 year old and a good freind along to hunt for some blue gill. We got plenty of fish including a bunch of nice gills, a lot of nice smallies, a gar (neat looking fish), a couple crappie, a slob carp, and of course catfish. Nice day to be out. I can't believe there aren't people getting killed there regularly! Big boats pulling water skiers and coming so close to eachother it was almost a fright to watch. Probably safer out on poygan? Don't know. Anyway, we did get checked by dnr. Nice girls and just checked for jackets, liscence, and fish. The good looking one was impressed with our bluegill catch and she gave me a wink haha! Anyway, have to disagree with the poster below me as I don't think an anchored boat is blocking navigation to anyone as you are clearly able to maneuver around them. Might mean you have to slow down, but hey, that would make it safer for everybody then, right? If the way you present that rule applied, no one could legally anchor anywhere for fear of being at fault if a collision occurred as from what I saw, the whole river was being used for travel. Wink

T/man, you are partially mistaken in your response. Federal waters and size of vessel will determine your requirements for sounding and day/night distress signaling.

Bago system - including portions of Fox and Wolf Rivers ARE Federal Waters. From the WI DNR: "Federal waters include: Coastal waters; the Great Lakes (Lake Michigan and Lake Superior); territorial seas (Lake Winnebago); waters which are two miles wide or wider and are connected directly to one of the above, including the Mississippi River, and portions of the Wisconsin, St. Croix, Wolf, and Fox Rivers "

Critical read is page 33 - quick reference check list

http://dnr.wi.gov/files/PDF/pubs/LE/LE0301.pdf

Also, for everyone that anchors mid-channel and then gripes about the boats passing by - here is a good law that is NOT enforced regularly on the Wolf, but easily could be. In the event of an accident, a good lawyer would use this against the anchored vessel. "Obstructing Navigation It is illegal to: Anchor a vessel in the traveled portion of a river or channel in a way that will prevent or interfere with any other vessel passing through the same area."

Wolf River is considered part of the Winnebago chain, which is Federal Waters. Check the regulations, but I'm pretty sure you need a sounding device like a horn and a flare gun. My dad got pulled over for that once and had to buy those two items or else he would get a ticket.
