Is the river below damn still access able by way of launch below the damn or the rest area below the highway
Wisconsin River Below Petenwell Dam, Juneau County
doorman....we drove around there last Tuesday and the ramp looked useable, imagine more so now after the temps warmed up and there wasn't any bad weather for the past few days...beware of ice chunks floating down, and don't run over any Eagle watchers, lot of them flying around the area.....(the Eagles, not the watchers, that I noticed)
MOON PHASE (68%)
36° - 40° F
Went tonight all gates open and the chute. Parking lot us accessible and saw l iui gets of a boat down the river. Casted from shore for an hour but waves and fast water made shore fishing tough.
I was out on the 13th and all gates were open. I arrived at 10:00 and was the only boat out there for the next two hours. Caught a lot of small eyes, six nice whities and a 30# sturgeon, lots of fun! With the water levels as high as they are, I suspect the gates are still open and will be for another week or so. FYI, I have some of my best fishing below the dam when the gates are open.
