I’m guessing you have not fished the river this fall Carpio??  There are no eddies close to shore.  There is almost zero current as low as the water is.  If there are fish to be caught they are in the middle of the river.

Fish below the bridge in downtown,on the north side of the river. The down side of the bridge seems to be the best. Fish the current eddies, close to the shore. It’s slower water and the fish are lethargic in this cold water. I haven’t fished there lately but it was a Go Too spot. Good luck.  Parking Was no problem.

I'm thinking of trying out the next Friday with my son since we are both off. I have never fished here just heard from a couple guys that that you can get walleyes and white bass from shore. My son is 11 and its about an hour drive for us. Just looking for some places to park and fish. Any help would be great.

Had this report and photo sent to me from My Monday Night Walleye League partner,  Pike Mike, on Sunday morning. From 5am to 9am... downtown Fort... he caught 11 keepers, 6 of them over 20" and some shorts. All, but 2 for the oil, were released. Jig and plastics with 3way and flies caught them all. Walleyes are biting pretty good on the river from the mouth up to the Jefferson dam.

We had the Weekly Rock River Baitbox Monday Night walleye league last night. Several boats headed out to troll the lake and had some success using #5 Salmos and #5 Flicker shad in various colors. We stayed in the river and fished the snags along the shorelines. We marked several good schools of crappie and whitebass hanging around those snags using side scan. We were able to boat a butterball of an eye that measured 21 1/2" and weighed 4 1/2 lbs. That fish alone took 1st place and Big fish for the week. It was a real healthy fish that is still swimming to live another day. We also caught quite a few of those whitebass. All fish were caught on jigheads with Tupper tails. As mentioned in earlier posts... the DNR has started the winter drop down of water levels and levels are low. Please beware if you are not familiar with the lake and river systems. But don't let that stop you from getting out. Take the time to call or ask and educate yourself before heading out. Fish are starting to hit that fall pattern and they are biting pretty good.

Guys are still getting the crappie and whitebass in and around the Bark River bridge. Guy came in and told me he caught about 30-35 nice whitebass and a handful of crappie yesterday. Mostly using fatheads under a bobber. Also said there were couple of kids picking them up on white mepps spinners. Good luck!

 Hello everyone, was wondering if you fellow lake linkers could help me out. I'm wondering if anyone has any good pointers for catching some sheep said on the rock. if you're willing to share specific locations that would be wonderful, and any other details would help. Thank you, p.m. Me if you'd prefer

Buddy been getting good sized crappie up the bark river. Jefferson dam has been producing little crappie no much to them and lots of dink cats and sheephead not much size to the cats very few eyes and a bunch of small white bass. We've gotten some nice whites and eyes about a mile up from mouth of river. Need some more cold nights and a few good rains to really get things going

Just got in a fresh batch of leeches, crawlers, and xl tuffy fatheads. I've been hearing a lot about guys catching eyes, crappies and whitebass at Indianford Dam, Blackhawk Island, Bark River Bridge and Jefferson dam. Crawlers and leeches are what's working the best for the eyes. Fatheads for everything else. Won't be long now and the Fall run will kick off in full force!
