Buoy tender is in the parking lot at the park. They should be taking all buoys and the dock out this week.

By the way, for those looking to use the Chester Creek launch... advised Hwy Z is (still) closed just south of where you turn in to the lot. Had to go back South to Apache Drive (I think, can't remember) to 13... then come back down Alpine (Pritzls on the corner).

Just a FYI to save you time, and a potential headache.

And, the pier is still in at Chester Creek launch... as of 10/13.

Report for Friday and Saturday, 10/12-10/13.

Fished the river Friday... water was highest I've ever seen, and moving FAST!! Some debris coming down river, so use caution when navigating. Channel marker buoys still in... and the (2) at the mouth were showing even 'less' later in the day!

Fished slack water areas, found the Walleyes. They're there. Wind blew us out of a few areas... but we kept a limit. All nice 15-17" fish... and a monster white bass (15") near the second launch (just upstream behind the nearest island).

Fished the flowage Saturday, and vertical jigged the hell out of the White Bass (stacked in 10-14' off a point)... big fun! Ran out of minnows by early evening, but they and the Walleyes also hit plastics. Kept another limit. Didn't fish yesterday morning... rain and 38 degrees not a good combination.

Get out if you can... the fish are hungry and very aggressive. Take care,

Fig8

The water is high in Nekoosa. About 19,000 cfs. There have been walleyes coming up for over a month. They follow the river shiners that are coming up to spawn in the fall. Water temps are hovering in the upper 40s to low 50s. There will be a walleye bite going on for a while. I usually finish the river in the boat until the ramp is frozen in. Some years until Christmas.

Can anyone say or guess if the increased  water flows will bring the walleye up from the Pete? Was thinking of coming down and putting in at Nekoosa.

Any info would be Greatly Appreciated!

Hit the Pete with the mad catter aka Litguy49(Ralph) on Sunday 9/30. We were targeting cats but I had one pole hanging over the side deadsticking. Fished 7-10.30 in misty very cloudy conditions. Managed 10 cats caught on a combo of dip and cut baits. The deadstick caught 2 of my usual 14.5 eyes and a nice Crappie. Lost a few more and had a bite off. Motor until you hit the dropoff 12-15ft , find wood and your set. As always a great time with Ralph! Good luck all!
