Way to go ToyMan.....Nice report
Fox River Oshkosh - Rainbow Park
MOON PHASE (40%)
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 :-)
**pic of WB is for the person who hasnt seen them before. 15.5 incher =TANKER
MOON PHASE (31%)
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.
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.
51° - 55° F
56° - 60° F
Fished Friday without even a bite. Tried jigs with Gulp. Jigs with crawlers. And flies. Wow. Overcast with mist. Winds out of the east. Marked plenty of fish in the river near the park. Others I talked with hadn't caught anything either. Even a sheep wouldn't bite. Crazy.
MOON PHASE (15%)
fished THURSDAY morning without a bite and yes wind was horrible and water super dirty with lots of debris. water temp mid 50's. not even one fish in 4 places we tried. was nice to get out and not be at work! The fish won and I will be back :-)
Started my day fishing the Wolf out of Fremont. Fishing was very slow so moved to Winneconne. Caught several small walleyes there. Moved to the river in Oshkosh and got on some decent fishing. Caught walleyes in several different areas. Jigs and crawlers as well as flies. Very few white bass. I have the following dates open in October, 6,15,17, or 18.
