The bite has been declining for me.  Still marking some fish but no takers.  Hopefully picks up when the temps warm up.  Shack was put on 24' of water at the beginning of ice fishing season and is now sitting on 14'.  Aerator is on and there is open water.  Be careful.

Water has dropped about 4 feet. Fished most of the day Saturday with only a few small perch every once in a while the fishing has been getting very slow.

The whole point of this reservoir is to supplement flows on the Wisconsin. There's 8 hydro's before you even get to Petenwell.  That being said,  even if they didn't need to supplement they would still draw down the reservoir some amount to accommodate the snow melt.   I doubt the ice plays a factor at all.

There isn't anymore ice this year than there was last year, so why would WVIC think the ice this year could break the dam?

There is plenty of water in Petenwell and Castle Rock reservoirs to power the hydroelectric.

Like I said they dropped the water so that ice doesn't put too much pressure on the dam and break it

I believe it has something to do with generating electric down stream on the wis. river.
