Hi ryan1980. When are you planning to come up? River stage is really high right now, but slowly falling. BUT, the flow rate is EXTREMELY fast/high right now, too. Water temp is sitting at around 56 degrees. Can a person still catch fish? Yes. Conditions just make it a little challenging, though. May I suggest that you set yourself up for receiving PM's. Depending on when you plan on coming up, I'd be more than happy to meet up with you and show you a few areas to fish. Take care.

Water is high.  Not much going during the day by the dam. Never no tho.  The float is closed and you can fish around it without getting in the way. Good luck! I live on the river but am too busy to fish.  Soon tho!

I am just wondering how the fishing is near the dam in lacrosse or Trempealeau. I am looking to head up from Milwaukee and wondering if its worth the trip, any info on the water levels or water temps would also be greatly appreciated. tight lines!

Took a ride to check what's going on at the dam.  Ramp to best dam fishing float is flooded.  I think they are done for the season.  Saw a few guys fishing. Saw a short caught from shore.  Not much going at about 5:00pm.  Might try it this week some time.  Good luck!

Hi everyone. Went to pool 8 for walleyes. It rained off and on all day. Weeds were everywhere. We got 8 legal walleyes biggest 26" lots of short walleyes. Found a mother load of sheep head and a lot of strippers action all day. Jig and plastic caught all the fish. Fun time see you on the water. Thanks.

Depending on the current by the wingdams you'll need to decide on the proper jig weight. 4 inch ring worms and flukes work well. The local bait shops have a good variety.

Hey guys. Hoping to get some advice. Coming over to fish on the Float on Thursday or Friday. Never been on this one. Have been on Clements. Ideas of what is hitting best and on what. Any tips would be appreciated. Would target walleyes first, panfish next.

Travelled 3.5hrs to fish pool 8 this weekend. Rained both Friday and Saturday. Friday was a grind, short biters. Ended up with 18 fish, 32" pike and 18" lmb were biggest. What a difference a day makes, Saturday the bass were stacked up and aggressive, ended up with 82 fish, biggest pike was 28", biggest lmb was 19", but so many 17" bass around.
