Try fishing at the down river side of the mile marker at the mouth of the Crooked Slough. This is one of the summer haunts for the walleye.

Docks are not yet in at savanna launch or palisades.  Water temps in the back waters are pushing into the low 80’s.  The main river channel is 70.    Gnats were ridiculous with this heat.  Tons of minnows in the backwaters with most about an inch long.

With the high water is it worth trying to panfish the backwaters off spring lake/big slough this weekend or is it too high and muddy?  

Thanks in advance

Started fishing at 6 a.m. . Off the water at 4 p.m. . Got my limit of walleye and sauger. Largest one was 19 and 3/4 smallest one was 17 in. The bite was tough. Nice day for fishing though..   Tight lines to all.

I was trolling crankbaits using a River 3 way rig. I caught several Walleye, in 3 hours. Here's a photo of one of the fish I caught.

Fished Sunday 730 until noon water was 40 deg a lot of boats out, caught 5 sauger and 1 walleye. Fished straight jig and minnow ( black tail chub) using 1/2oz they liked it slow not a lot of jigging. Also caught them using debuque rig. Found a small perch floating in live well... 

i caught a humpback sauger you hear about them catching these on Winnebago first for me on Mississippi anyway took her out of the reproductive cycle a little small, but thought it was the right thing to do.... lol

if anyone is coming from IL FYI savanna bridge is closed needed to drive to Fulton to cross added 30 minutes to drive

Late report from Saturday. I tried off mickelsons, headed north, 8-noon.  Drilled about 30 holes, only thing I caught was large bait (shiners)! Talked to a few other guys, only one guy caught something...a bullhead. Everyone seemed to be moving around a lot, no one seemed to stay more than two hours. Nothing on vex or camera, deep areas only 3'-5', tried minnows, waxies, and spikes. Packed up and headed to Carlton, had some luck there (will post my report there). Good luck and tight lines!
