I went out with a friend on Saturday hoping to wade in the Johnsonville area. Current was far to fast due to the high water. Water was at waist high level for a 6' person. Fished from shore in Johnsonville. Caught 1 small Smallmouth early on. Caught nothing later on. We tried spinnerbaits, spinners, wacky worm, crankbaits, topwater, curly tails, weighted craws, and chatterbaits. Moved over to the Wayside farther north and decided to catch a few bluegill. Missed a smallie and a pike.

I was there Sunday. Water level has lower and clearer. Handful of fisherman. One report a Brown trout caught. Seems more activity at the dam, but you need to buy a pass to fish that property from shore. I'm a fly fisherman, but if your spinning, my guess would be a spawn sac below a float would be good to start with..........

Has anyone been fishing the river? Any luck? I never fished the river and don't know what is best bait/rig to use or good spots to fish from shore. Any info or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have nothing to prove, it has been proved by many state and federal agencies. Contact them and they will educate you as it is not my responsibility.
I never said I was smarter then you, I stated what we had been told by state and federal agencies, nothing more than that.
I also never once said you could not put on your waders or get in your kayak to get to the water below the dam. I said the dam is private, try and keep up.
The ramp was put in because of the burden it put on the community and those not involved with the event as well as helping the events function more efficiently. Again any money paid by the public has been repaid 1000 times over in taxes and monies brought to the area by said events. Why close it? Because it's not needed when there isn't an influx of 150 to 200 thousand people in one week.
I'm done with the topics, apparently somebody put something in your Cheerios this morning that made you very bitter.
P.S. When you contact the WDNR and ACoE you may want to ask them about "dams" and not "damns" so they know what you are talking about.
