Anyone know if they dredged Park 2 this year? Would like to go out hunting for some perch this weekend.

Thanks for any info.

I heard some perch were being caught off Oconto in about 15 fow. I went out and gave it a try. I launched in the river by Dockside and fished about a mile or so out from 12 to 20 fow. I did catch quite a few perch but not one over 7". Minnows on slip bobbers worked good, I tried worms but couldn't get it near the bottom without catching a gobbie.

I called about launch access during the opening weekend. The lady on the phone said there should be access for the weekend since the operators are only working during the week days. Sounds like after Sunday we'll have to trailer up to the breakwater.

Funny, they dredged it last year, but quit before they were done. I taked to the operator and they said they were told to only take out a little. Really Dumb.

It's the county park that is furthest north in Oconto county (not the town of Oconto) along cty rd Y. It is about 10 minutes south of Peshtigo and just south of the Marinette/Oconto county line. There is a campground there. Its not on a river, just a little harbor that is protected by a little break wall. I also called the county offices and they did confirm they will be shutting down the launch for two weeks starting later this week to dredge the mouth of the harbor. The mouth has been a bit tough to get out of and if you aren't familiar with it there would be a good chance of getting stuck in the sand.

just picked up my boat launch sticker. the lady at the counter said that oconto park 2 would be closing starting about april 26 for 2 weeks.. so if you were planning on going out of there for the opener, you'll have to go elsewhere

wisconsin spring hearing tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!7pm southwest highschool brown county

my resolution

Title: Protect the Northern Pike of Green Bay The Problem: The northern pike that preside in the bay of Green Bay are fighting an uphill battle that they will eventually lose if we the people of Wisconsin and the WDNR don’t act now! With 70% of the historic wetlands along the west shore of the bay already lost, the WDNR has mounted a rather successful campaign to save the wetlands we have left. With hundreds of thousands of dollars or even millions spent on purchasing land, creating spawning grounds, and recreating buffers along small streams one would think the pike population would explode. Yet the WDNR states, “The scarcity of top predator species such as northern pike has been recognized as a significant problem in the waters of the bay.” The pikes main ecological role in the bay is to control other species such as exotics that compete with game fish and perch. The WDNR own studies displayed white perch stomachs contained up to 35 yellow perch young, nothing compared to alewife stomachs that contained 258 yellow perch young. The bay of Green Bay is “sick”. Yellow perch numbers are nothing like the 1980’s. Pike numbers and quality are even worse. Some but not all of the pike decline can be attributed to low water levels during the spring spawn. Low water levels are not an excuse for pike decline but just another reason pike need more protection!

Be it resolved, that the WDNR protects pike by decreasing the bag limit and/or creating a slot to protect bigger females.
