Spring is here fellas!

Has anyone had any luck so far on walleye/sauger/White Bass?
When does the run typically hit the Rock River in the Janesville area?

I typically do well on channels cats, but have had days in the early fall where I just slayed saugers & eyes. Wondering if and when they have a run in the spring.

Appreciate any info!
Thanks!
Tight lines!

Alright I am going to be that guy, but to be fair I tried to read through old posts and Googled it. I am driving from an hour away next weekend and was wondering what the best launch in area is. I have a 16 foot deep v and have never fished the rock river before. I saw on the websites that launches say they are open generally around early April not sure what that meant. Any help would be great, if not I will probably just wing it. Thanks guys tight lines!

Me and my son hit the Rock River near Janesville. Caught 3 nice channel cats bumping with cut bait. Nice fish for the deep fryer. Here is my son with 2 that he caught.

Eyelooking -

I attached a link with Janesville area boat launches.  I'm not sure about their hours of operation, but recommend calling the Parks Department and explaining your situation.

I have been fishing this water using the Hwy 14 boat launch. I have a 20 ft deep V and I like this launch. The problem is I like to catfish at night and this launch (Park) closes at 10pm. I never stayed past 10 pm to see if I get a ticket but I sure would like to fish later than 10pm. My question is: Is there a boat launch south of this launch (towards town) where it does not close?

Fished on both the river and pond side at traxler park atgills/ 10-11 last night. Nothing except one nice catfish/carp that pulled me into weeds and got off. Lots of small gills/minnows messing with the worms...

I agree with Chop-chop.  Fishing is terrible most of the season north of Traxler all the way up.  Occasional fish but dead sea for the most part.  Was out this morning for a few hours, caught nothing.  Kosh and on the river north of Kosh, never have trouble finding at least some shorts.
