Any fish in the marsh from when they drained it? How thick is the ice out there?

I was just out there yesterday, (June 3rd) and the water level appeared to be about 6 to 8 inches lower than when I was out there at the end of April.

Marsh drawdown isn't the solution - it IS the problem.  Drawdown promotes new cattail growth in the middle of the Sheboygan Lake area.  Returning the water level to previous level prevents the new cattails from growing deep roots.  After a few years, these cattails are broken loose by high winds and float down to the dam.  Now that those are gone, it only makes sense (ha ha) to begin the cycle again.  Too funny, right?  At least the duck hunting improves for the first year or two after the drawdown but it never approaches what it was like before the drawdowns began almost 50 years ago.

I ve heard that insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over the same way and expecting to get  different results.  I remember a time when perch fishing was great in the marsh, then came the draw down and no perch after that only carp and northerns.

From what I've seen in the past most fish get flushed out below the dam. You will find some pockets where they are loaded in and people fish shoulder to shoulder to get them.

A big thank you to the Sheboygan County Planning And Resource Dept. as well as the WDNR for continuing the draw downs at the marsh.  It takes great resilience to stick to a plan that has never accomplished its goal. Maybe this draw down will be different, maybe the FIX-IT-FAIRY will show up and make things all better!

So I'm new the the marsh. Do the fish go down/up river with them draining or do they congregate into tight areas in the marsh?
