Whitebass bit really good in early October but the water temp dropped fast and got dirty in the river.  And I didn't post a report cause hardly anyone was fishing the river  it was awesome having it to myself on this certain stretch of river.

I guess the white bass run wasn't to good this Fall.  Had great time last year with my friends, Virgil, Frank and Joey.  Hope to do it again next year.

MOON PHASE (96%)
Waxing Gibbous

Cold Morning so later start SUNDAY from 9-noon and water temp 42. Brrrrr

fished in 3 spots and found 3 fish lol.  water still super dirty with 1ft vis if that

did find a nice eye at 24" and 2 smaller ones on flys n minnows. 

Ps. senior center had about 20 beer bottles smashed on ramp and around ramp so be careful.  forced me to launch elsewhere as my dogs and tires are not keen to glass.

Reports also draw all the dirtbags that will anchor almost in your boat and oshkosh isnt that big & can only fit so many boats at so many places...end of rant.

FISHING REPORT:  fish were biting for us anyways.  whitebass are done and eyes moving up.  fished after the rain yesterday and coulda kept limit of eyes yet only kept 6 good ones and a few whitebass.  FLYS n Minnows and you have to be on your game as they were very light bites.  water temp spiked down to 47!!! was 66 last week.  dirty water w/ 1ft vis makes fishing TOUGH.  it is called fishing not catching.  My drive is over an hour from Milwaukee.....GO BREWER'S and say a prayer for the Packer's :-)

No reports ???

You people are great!

I went on Saturday morning 6-1:30...

Not even one bite! At one point I counted 25 boats by 41 bridge. I looked for fish all the way from weenebago to 41 bridge and couldn't find any.

Have not seen one white bass and just a few small walleye.l

More than 35 trailers on the lot and no reports... Great... Good luck and keep sucking.

There have been 2 to 3 boats at the discharge pretty much all day from what I have seen for the last so many days.

Something I learned long ago...

Given that the fox river in oshkosh has such a small gradient and is more or less a straight shot between Butte des morts and winnebago, wind direction really seems to effect the bite.

A strong enough east wind is sometimes able to change the direction of flow of the river. (Worst fishing days)

West/northwest/southwest, or even north winds historically are the best days to hit the river in oshkosh.
