The bass are VERY active in the shallows up near shorelines. Caught between 20-30 the past two days about 2 hours each day. Mid afternoon.

I don’t eat them, but damn they are fun to catch!

On the WI Dells Dam, if you look at the dam from Macdonalds, the right side/bank of the river is wadable. Although throughout most of the river I was never more than 10 yards away from the bank (5 yards away throughout most of it) I caught a few smallmouth casting parallel to the shore and it was beautiful. The wade is dangerous, several drop offs, teeter-tot rocks, and unusual changes of underwater terrain. I was within falling reach of the shore line until I was around the bend of the river (from macdonalds) and on the long end of the river. I’d recommend being close to shore while continuing down the long end of the river until you were in the weeds/gravel/sand/mud and away from the big underwater rocks by the dam. You can go far down the river after that point. Although I hope you are already aware of the dangers of wading, its pretty damn dangerous. I’d recommend going with somebody else and being very careful when experimenting how far into the river you want to go in. Feel free to ask me questions.

The way it’s sounding is they’re catching spawned females back in lake Wisconsin. I’d say it’s a safe bet the walleye run is over, or going to be over relatively soon.

You’d have to be pretty brave to try fishing at 26,000. I’ve fished at 18,000 with two anchors but it was very tough.

Flow rate as of this writing is 26000 cfs.... its high and dirty; fishing will be tough. There is very little backwater area on this stretch for fish to go to. I would not go by the dam either- the current will be very swift.

The rivers tough, and the dams even tougher. I would say anything from 10,000-13,000 is manageable. You start getting into the 13,000+ and it makes boat control a chore. Once they let a gate open, the water gets choppy and it becomes dangerous with the current pushing back under the gates. My opinion, wait until the water calms down. With a dry week this week, it should come back sooner than later. 


Of course this is based off of a guy who has never dropped an anchor in the dam. I love to troll around and find fish at different depths. Maybe someone who has a different style could lay down some advice.

Is it possible to even fish under the dam tomorrow? With the flow at around 18,000 cps.

Fished from shore last night targeting walleyes, had few light bite and couldn't set the hook. Got a 39" musky instead. PB on jigging with 3" power grub.

One gate was open, water level is about few feet higher than few weeks ago.
