Launched off Groeller and went up river. Was out from noon to 4:00pm yesterday. I ended up with 7 shorts and one 19” walleye. Water was higher than normal due to last weekend’s rain. Jig with yellow/chartuse speckled Gulp worked best. Fish seemed be in the middle of river channel at 12 to 14 deep.

I tried fishing last week there. not much luck. I watched others and I didn't see anybody catching anything. Then again I probably didn't see them they might have caught something.
Anyway I went home 5 crappies. except one they were all small.
good luck to you.
Got out for a few hours this morning before the storm seemingly came out of no where. Rain I don't mind but the lightning was way too close and we made our way off the water. This is the first time I've been here in a few months. Water is very high, shore fishing is closed off by the bar, like it was in the beginning of the spring run. Got 3 keepers, 3 shorts, couple sheeps, and a tiny catfish. Saw a deer too right on the edge of the river that was pretty cool. Good luck.
