Anybody land any big eyes out there ? I've been catching plenty of eyes and a few sauger but nothing sizable. Short fish with an eater every 5-10 fish. Maybe I need to change my presentation...

Checked the dresbach dam at about 4:00pm.  Not much action.  A few people fishing.  The fishing float is back open.  River is moving at a good pace.

Hit the backwaters for a couple hours before dark. 2 small Lmb.  Water clearing up.  Water is down about 7 inches.  Marked a few fish but still too much current.

Me and my dad are coming up on Friday for the weekend, we've been coming up and fishing by lock and dam 6 for many decades. We used to have a houseboat but now we fish off a pontoon boat so we prefer to be able to tie off to the lock wall because its hard to anchor in fast current. Would you suggest fishing by the dam or hitting up the wing dams down river for walleye? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi ryan1980. When are you planning to come up? River stage is really high right now, but slowly falling. BUT, the flow rate is EXTREMELY fast/high right now, too. Water temp is sitting at around 56 degrees. Can a person still catch fish? Yes. Conditions just make it a little challenging, though. May I suggest that you set yourself up for receiving PM's. Depending on when you plan on coming up, I'd be more than happy to meet up with you and show you a few areas to fish. Take care.

Water is high.  Not much going during the day by the dam. Never no tho.  The float is closed and you can fish around it without getting in the way. Good luck! I live on the river but am too busy to fish.  Soon tho!

I am just wondering how the fishing is near the dam in lacrosse or Trempealeau. I am looking to head up from Milwaukee and wondering if its worth the trip, any info on the water levels or water temps would also be greatly appreciated. tight lines!

Took a ride to check what's going on at the dam.  Ramp to best dam fishing float is flooded.  I think they are done for the season.  Saw a few guys fishing. Saw a short caught from shore.  Not much going at about 5:00pm.  Might try it this week some time.  Good luck!

Hi everyone. Went to pool 8 for walleyes. It rained off and on all day. Weeds were everywhere. We got 8 legal walleyes biggest 26" lots of short walleyes. Found a mother load of sheep head and a lot of strippers action all day. Jig and plastic caught all the fish. Fun time see you on the water. Thanks.
