How is the walleye fishing at these dams. Pm me with info thank you.
Fox River, Burlington, Rockchester, Waterford, Racine County
Can motorized boats be launched at the cth w access point on 328th ave and is trailer parking allowed?
If not are there any boat launches besides the silver lake one on the fox river in the Kenosha Racine area?

Twister tails are always a good choice for the river.
Caught a smallie above the Rochester dam this evening on an ice fishing jig tipped with a waxie - was looking for perch.
Also caught a couple of small panfish. Only had about an hour to fish.
Below Rochester dam the river is faster and less weedy. A lot of shallow rocky areas. Fish are pretty spread out this time of year. I recommend hitting deeper pools, fallen trees, casting Rapala or something like a beetle spin or twister tail jig.
Just purchased a couple of Kayaks. Plan on spending some time paddling around the river. I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips as to what lures to be casting? I went out above the Rochester Dam last week, and it seems pretty shallow and weedy. Thanks in advance.
Had a few hours to burn today so I figured I'd check out Burlington and Rochester (never made it to waterford). Water is very low everywhere. Burlington was a waste of time, muddy water, not worth fishing till the raise echo and let water flow over the top of the dam. Snagged a catfish on my first cast and left after 15 min. Spent the rest of my day at Rochester. Water very very low. Wasn't expecting much. Caught 2 pike (32 and 20) on a rattle trap and inline spinner and 2 small smallies.

Using waders below either dam can be both fun and productive. However, to any first-timer, I would advise a scouting trip when the water is low, and with a partner if possible. There are a few spots that are deeper even in low water. Personally, I have found Waterford to be easier to get around when the water is low (lots of exposed rocks).
