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!
Rock River (Janesville area)
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?

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.
