The gates weren't open on Saturday night. I felt like water level dropped while I was there.

I went out last weekend and a kid had one whitebass on his stringer. No clue if they're in there thick. I personally didn't catch any.

Fished Saturday (5/12) afternoon for about 3 hours below the dam in the boat. Caught 5 Catfish, from 18 - 22.5 inches. Also caught over 16 Walleyes, from 6 - 13 inches and numerous bites. Only reason we left because we were out of bait. It was fun to catch fish after fish!

Anyone catch any white bass yet at the dam?  How is the water level, temp and gates open or close?  Is the ramp open by the dam to launch boat?  Planning to make a trip there in a couple of weeks.

Beuller just go to Wisconsin river power company website, click on hydroelectric project data, scroll to the bottom and you will see total flow for both Pete and CAstle Rock dams.

Fished Petenwell yesterday, fishing was consistent all day. Lots of little ones. Started by the trestle fishing jig and minnow color didn't seem to matter. Water temperature was 48 when we got out there was 51 when we got off the water. All the gates were still open.

silvergranny, that makes sense now. That sign shows the headwater (petenwell flowage) level. It must have been 922.63 when you saw it. 


Anybody have a current water temp below the dam?

So very sorry for the incorrect info about the dam and water footage. Just reading what the sign said. However, looks like the water is still roaring!!
