Anyone have info on the water coming out or the bite?
Wisconsin River Below Petenwell Dam, Juneau County
MOON PHASE (24%)
There are plenty of Muskie in the river. I have never targeted them specifically, but catch them all the time right at the Dam from shore walleye fishing at night. One October night I caught 3 in and hour and a half. 28”, 38”, and 42”. All on floating Rapalas. I have seen two 50 inches caught in the 30 years I have been fishing here. My personal best was a 45” about ten years ago.
I am sure there are guys that can give you more specific details on targeting Muskie, but there is definitely a lot in this river system!

How is the musky population in this part of the river. Can they be targeted? Any locations greatly appreciated.
I was thinking on trying this week - only fished for bass and pike before - never for musky.

Last night's trip to the river below the Petenwell dam was a little more successful than the night before. Saturday night we got soaked and only put a few goats and one very short walleye in the boat. We trolled the north end of the lake for a while and jigged further up in the river.
Last night was a little better with putting a couple walleyes in the boat, a few white bass, a lot of goats, a pike, a crappie and the best catch of the day was a nice flathead caught on a 4 inch plastic up towards the dam. Everything last night was caught jigging in timber along the river channel or below the dam on the edge of the deep scour hole by the flood gates. Everything was released.
Took out a few guys that are down at Ft. McCoy for a military course. Two from up by the Wausau area and the other is from southern Indiana.
