Took my canoe upriver from my house today (between W and E). A snake northern on a spinner bait, switched to slip bobber and crawlers. Got two Smallies and a few suckers, nice day.

Went out kayaking Saturday and Sunday caught two smallmouth bass that were about three pounds each with a terminator spin bait.
Sunday caught eight small one and one well over four pounds.
I"ve fished river a few times in the past, like 12 years ago. My brother and I want to fish it again this summer with his 9 year old boy. We have secured a 16 foot mod V John boat for the float. All is good now. I come here to ask about the USGS flow rate levels. As of June 25, the flow is at 1000 cfm. Back when I floated the river, we never had resources like this. Does anyone know firsthand about the flow rates and what a safe level would be for floating and fishing?

We fished walleye from the shore at the mouth of the peshtigo river a week ago and caught 20 walleye before the wind/waves forced us to the beach. Equal success with husky jerks, jigs/plastic bodies and minnows. All the fish were spawned out and hungry!
Sorry not a report,
I Just bought a boat this year that I'm able to use for trolling on the bay, i have 4 rods and some boards and some flicker shads, I'm very new to this and I'm wondering if anyone can give me any information helping a new trolling guy out. I have tons of experience jigging walleyes but really wanna learn trolling. Is it worth coming up and fishing the mouth of the river for pre and post spawn walleyes? what would be a good technique? how does one go about trolling crawler harnesses? speeds for crawlers and cranks? any info would be greatly appreciated, feel free to PM me with info. Wanting to try saturday morning. Also willing to take an experienced trolling guy out on my boat to teach me and show me tips and tricks!
