Fished the river on Tuesday.  Very few people fishing.  Water level seemed to have dropped a foot since most recent high.  Launch was in good condition.  Fished down river from the launch.  Anchored and casted into deeper holes with no luck.  Caught a couple drifting and vertical jigging along a deep stretch of shoreline.   

DNR was tagging upstream from the launch and had netted about 150 walleye (their number not mine).  Found most of the fish in a shallow area just upstream and west of the railroad bridge.  So there are still some eyes in the river, just not hoards of them.

Fish have been tagged in Menominee and caught in little bay less than 48 hours later. The bay population is extremely healthy. Anyone who says different has an extreme lack of knowledge of the fishery. End of story.

Last year my buddy was fishing in Door County caught his first tagged fish. Sent info to DNR it was tagged in the Fox River in 2014. They don't stay there they move.

Flood warning until Tuesday. Water is very high. Most fish will hold below the dam due to the colder water Temps. Dropped 6 degrees in the past 24 hours. Still fish at mouth with hard spawn in them.

You can launch, for a fee, at the ramp next to the city garage in the town of Peshtigo.
