I haven't tried this area, couldn't find much information online about it. Any tips for fishing this time of the year for walleyes/sauger?

Anyone been out fishing the Fox River around Yorkville lately? I was planning on going out this Saturday morning, and wanted to see if it would be worth it. Thanks!

Well the main thing right now is the water coming out is clear. I'm sure it's a few degrees warmer but I'm not sure.

I made it out Wednesday. I duck hunt from the state park all the way up to Oswego but that was the first time fishing this stretch. Brought the boat because I knew the water would be up. It was a bit dirtier than I thought. Ran up to the dam and the bypass but current was too strong and there was no decent slack water areas. Checked the creek and tossed some jigs and jerkbaits but found far too much brush to work it effectively. Finally I settled on the discharge. Parked the boat on the rocks and fished from shore. Managed a half dozen crappie and some small bass. Left a slip sinker rig with a highball floater and crawler on the current seem/mudline while I casted. Snagged at least a dozen shad and carp. Threw some jerkbaits and rubber for musky. Actually hooked up with a mid 30's on a white spring bulldawg. Came off about twenty seconds in. That was the only toothy critter to make an appearance

got some nice gills,a crappie and alotta little bass today,lost a nice 20 inch + eye at the shore yesterday,not long and they should all be up by the dams!! Smile river is really muddy and dark,its good that it came up alot tho.once it settles a little and warms up in the next week, fish will be on fire.
