Another busy week on the river.  The summer is flying by and fishing has been very good.  River levels have been stable and the weather has been cooperating.  Walleye and bass fishing remain good.  Picking up a few Northerns also.  Yesterday's panfish trip went well.  The brisk wind prevented us from fishing some of the current hot spots for perch and bluegills, but we fished around and ended up with a nice mixed bag of panfish including this dandy crappie that Jenny caught. We fished side channels and sloughs using a small jig under a slip bobber.

Thanks for reading my reports and have a great weekend!

Had a great time fishing with this crew. Lots of fish, lots of shorts, but some good ones too. Here's a couple that were a little too big to keep.

See ya on the river

Spent the last couple of days targeting walleye with Pete and his crew.  Dick Neefe and I split the guys up each day with both boats having good success.  Friday was a mixed bag in my boat, putting walleye, sauger, northern, channel cats and even a crappie, fishing crankbaits in about 6-8 FOW.  We caught fish both casting and trolling.  Yesterday we caught more walleyes, with the guys keeping 5 nice ones up to 20 inches.  Several shorts also plus a nice flathead.

The river is fishing very good right now with fairly steady water levels and flow.  The fish are biting!

Hi guys I have been reading reports on here for the last couple years. I mainly fish pool 8 but have picked up alot of good tips from some of you. Especially mr. Peck. Not to stir the pot but my grandpa mainly has targeted channel cats for the last 10 years. That is definitely a big channel cat in the picture.

Try anchoring above wingdams and throw cranks and live bait.

I'm coming there in the morning and would like a little info on where the fish are in general. I'm bringing another disabled vet and I would like to see him have fun. I know some things about the area but a depth, structure, or general direction would be nice. Thank you for any info.

Another great day on the river yesterday fishing with Matt and his daughter.  She is only 5 years old and quite a good little fisherman.  Hung right with us all day catching walleye, channel cats, lots of bluegills and perch.  Her dad boated this beautiful 14 incher!

The river conditions are very good right now and just about all species are biting.  The river went back up a few inches in the last few days, but it is still pretty low, so exercise caution when boating off the main channel area.  

Thanks for reading my reports and good fishing!

Channels have a V shaped tail fin and flatheads have a straight edge across the end of the tail fin.
