Will be in muscoda over labor day weekend. I am wondering if I can get a 17ft boat in the backwaters.

Thanks for the info getsirius. Going to watch the flow and hope it drops into the 12,000 range over the next week. I think that would give me a bar or two two camp on. And hopefully low and clean enough to make fishing even possible

Otter Creek, near the Lone Rock bridge, is a good landing. Plenty of good camps upstream between there and Spring Green when the water level is cooperating. Good luck though, the river is pretty high right now and I would think there is little, if any, sand to camp on.

Can anyone suggest a decent boat launch somewhere between the prairie do sac dam and muscoda? I want to hit the river for a few days next week. Do some camping on sand bars and fishing. The boat is a light weight 16' modified v. Easy to get on and off the trailer so the launch doesn't have to be perfect. But needs parking

Chased smallmouth the last couple of days with Jerry and Paul.  We caught a good bunch of nice fish each day.  It appears that the majority of the fish have spawned as we caught lots of males and skinny females.  A couple of the clearer areas we fished had fish on beds.  Everything caught pitching tubes.  The water temp. has warmed to 62 degrees, and the water is falling very fast.  Down under the 5 foot level today, down from 7 feet a few days ago. 

If you are looking for a fun weekend, consider the Muscoda Morel Fest going on this weekend.  Lots of fun activities for the whole family.  Check it out at www.muscoda.com.  Thanks for reading my reports and have a good week!

Got out on the river for a couple of hours yesterday between rains.  The object was to fish for catfish.  Fished one rod with a crawler and one with Sonny's cheese bait.  My first bite was a big Buffalo.  Heck of a fight!   A few minutes later I boated a nice channel cat on the Sonny's.  Made a move to another spot out of the main flow and set up again.  The crawler rod just about went out of the boat with this nice channel cat on it!  Only three bites, but all were nice fish.  The water temp. dropped a few degrees with the cool weather, being 57 degrees.  The river is still up with all the recent rains, but water clarity is very clear.

Happy Mother's Day to all!  Take your Mom fishing!!

Smallmouth trip yesterday morning with Adam and Joe.  After the big rains we had the last several nights, the river went up again and got very dirty.  It did clear some on Friday night, so we hit the river looking for cleaner water.  When we found it we also found fish.  The guys boated a nice bunch of smallmouth bass. No giants, but some very respectful fish.  All were caught on tubes.  The water temp is right around 60 so it won't be long and they will be on beds.

Thanks for reading my reports, and have a good weekend!

Back out on the river this afternoon checking out areas for upcoming trips.  We had a little over and inch of rain last night, with more on the way.  The water is still very clean and has warmed up to just over 60 degrees.  The river fell about 10 inches since my last time out on Monday.  Real good bite this afternoon boating 4 nice smallmouths and this 22 inch walleye.  (all released)  The walleye fell for a spinnerbait as well as one of the smallies.  The other smallies were caught on a jig and a tube in about 4 fow.  The main river is still flowing very fast.  Be extremely cautious if you're going out, and be sure to wear your life vest and attach your kill switch.

Thanks for reading my reports and good fishing!

Got out on the Lower Wisconsin for a couple of hours today.  Beautiful day with air temp right around 80 degrees.  The water temp was 52.  The river is very high right now, 7' at Muscoda with the flow at 34,700 cfs.  Current is really strong.  Found a few smallmouths today, including the one in the terrible photo attached!  It was a dandy fish, 19 incher caught on a texas rigged tube pitched to shoreline cover.  Mostly drove around looking at areas I will probably fish this weekend on a guide trip.  Nice being out again after a busy period on the Mississippi.  

The river forecast shows it dropping to 4.0' and 16,300 cfs by the weekend.  That will help fishing as well as the warm weather predicted which should get them smallies in their spawning areas.  

Thanks for reading my reports and have  great week!
