Back out on the open water below the Dubuque lock and dam #11, The ice went out of the Hawthorne st boat Ramp this week, no boat docks in the water, take caution there is slippery ice and also mud at the waters edge making it slippery getting in and out of the boats. It was a pleasure to get back on the open water after a few months of starring at the vexlairs, coaxing pan fish into sucking in our small ice jigs. Our fishing started great, boating a nice keeper walleye just under the protected slot size, ( 20" - 27") that our very smart Iowa and Illinois DNR, imposed on our sections the Mississippi river quite a few years back. This is to help protect our natural breeding river Walleye population. The slot limit has been working extremely well, according to the fall Iowa DNR shocking reports. The last two years in a row have been record shocking of what the DNR calls the young of the year walleye class. More yearling walleye recorded then any of the previous years. My hats off to this great regulation. And we are still holding out hope that the Wisconsin DNR gets off there BLANKS, and gets on board to protect the Wisconsin side of our pool 12 river walleye. We fished for 5 hrs and boated close to 2 dozen walleye and sauger, looking forward to getting back on the water and Good luck fishing. Cool

Fished the last few days on pool 12, water temp is cooling down and today has dropped a few more degrees to 74, water clarity is good, and floating grass and weeds is best is been in a few weeks. The fish are still on the rocks. We are moving around from wing dams to lateral rock ledges and are catching a verity of game fish, still catching nice Walleyes, Catfish, Bass, and sheephead. Our best day last week was 7 nice keeper size walleyes and releasing two big slot walleyes. Good luck fishing . A side note to the MWC Angler who called a few weeks ago and left me a lengthy voicemail, Sorry I lost your return phone # ,just call me again.

Cool

Fished the Dubuque pool 4 days last week , water conditions are good , water level is just under 9 feet. Making most all the wing dams very fishable. Many of the river fish species have moved to the rock piles catching a verity of fish, walleye, bass, shepheads, catfish, and even some slab bluegills. We are mostly 3-way Dubuque riging with leeches and crawlers. our best day last week was with Steve and Blake experienced fisherman from Chicago Ill. Who unfortunately had to cancel there annual trip to Red lake Ontario. But still decided to take a day to fish the Dubuque pool 12 with me. The bite was very steady last Friday Most all the wingdams we fished, we got bites. A big mixed bag of fish. finished the day with 8 nice walleye keepers and some slab bluegills in the live-well for a great fish fry. Good Luck Fishing.

Buckfever I agree with Ia rangers post, Schmitt harbor Ramp is out of the current, the East Dubuque ramp can be very tricky to put your boat on when the current is up and roaring. And when the water level drops below 10 ft. you should not cross over the wing dams. I use navonics mapping and shows most all the wingdams. Feel free to contact me if you have any river questions.
