Wow thanks for all the positive feedback.  You know how to make a tall chubby guy tear up.  Honestly, without the help of the guides and our customers, we would never be able to give these reports.  You can imagine I do not get to fish much around the run so we would like to thank everyone for the great info.


We heard some good numbers of white bass this week once the weather stabilized.  High end is 80 but the average is 25-30 fish per day. The boat traffic and pressure has really dropped this week so it is allowing everyone to move around more to find active fish.  We do have a tank of shiners in stock while they last.  The night has still been the best bite.


Crappies are pretty much done spawning and now the gills are pulling up shallow and making their beds. It won't be long before the spawn.


Cat fishing is great!  I think someone posted about using parts of the white bass and that works great.  The liver is probably the best part but spawn sacks and guts are good too.  Dip baits and cut baits are also working well.


Thanks again to everyone for such an awesome 3 months.  Now I get to go fishing!!

Made my last ousting for the 2016 spring walleye / whitebass run. Obligations are taking me to other bodies of water, and I suspect I won't be back on the Wolf until mid summer. Foremost,  I want to thank a few people/businesses that really make the a difference for time spent on the Wolf. 

1. Our law enforcement agencies. It's a welcoming sight to see the presence they bring and their efforts. They can't see everything, and can't prevent all stupidity. But the frequent presence they have is a good thing for us all.

2. Hotel Fremont. The staff is always friendly, rooms are basic but clean, food is great, and the little things they do for guests is always appreciated. Fish cleaning station, discarding tons of fish guts, and freezers is a huge plus.

3. Fremont Bait/Tackle - Chris. Honesty and integrity is what Chris has brought to this business. No matter how busy he is, he still tries to give all the help he can to aid in people catching fish. Generous with bait and prices are reasonable to the market. Chris has also stocked a number of products specific to the river and listens to those that provide quality reports. 

4. Fellow fishermen/women. The tradition of the runs are nearly timeless. Generation after generation has continued to make this migration to the river. The vast majority of people I work with and meet are great people and make each year as fun or more as the last. 

Like many others, the hardest part was locating concentrations of w/b. They're scattered out between very shallow and main channel. Additionally, there are fish in multiple stages of the run. Many are still spawning, some are done, and others have started the down run. We went in full attack mode with the full arsenal. Spinners, cranks, jig/plastics, flies, blades..... each small school we came across had their own temperament and different baits produced while others failed.  It was just a case of throw everything at them to find what they wanted. When it shut down, throw something different. When nothing no longer worked, move. Fished from the tressel by Gills down to near the Rat. 

3 guys had 117 wb and 9 walleyes.  Many of the females were caught shallow and we're pouring eggs. Still plenty of time to get in on the action.

Have a great summer and I wish everyone success

Cats have been going strong for a few weeks now. Best on white bass guts and spawn sacks.  Lots of fun!

I can never thank you enough Chris for the truthful reports and great information. Freemont bait and tackle will always be number 1 in my book.

Run is NOT over.  Just less people fishing which happens every year.  Lots have spawned but there are still females with eggs and males.  River has gone up with all the rain and that should extend the run further.

Red Banks corner and the rock wall seem to be the biggest concentration but the lack of pressure means you can move around more. Try both sides of the river.  Most fish are in the sand but seem to move more on the rock wall at night to feed.

Split shot and a minnow has been the best technique but spinners are much more fun.

We are still open 5am till 6pm every day (Sunday till 5pm) for those who want to get an early start.

Lighten up River Monster, it was a joke, and no, I don't think the run is over. I've been fishing the Wolf River for 47 years and I know that the White Bass run can stretch out well into June, it all depends on conditions.

Budman. It takes a real genius to point out a typo. You must be one of the guys that think the run is over being that you have nothing to say about fishing.

River Monster, "Night bite is always better at night in the spring run."? I would hope that the night bite isn't better during the day.
