 Hello everyone, I know we're a little earlier yet, but I was wondering if any of you fine gentlemen  could point me in the right direction of some good spots for sturgeon fishing for this coming September. It's my first time trying it, I just want to have the experience of catching and releasing One of those beautiful Giants. Any tips for bait, and or spots, as well as timing and any other tips would be very much appreciated. Thank you and you can message me if you would prefer

Is there any good fishing near Austin derleth park? I'd like to try this area for the first time. Targeting panfish & catfish. Still looking for my first ever flathead & bluegill over 10 inches. I'm not sure if white bass run here as well but I like fishing for those too.

In case your wondering, it looks like Alliant Energy has taken down the internet  water flow rate for the Prairie du Sac Dam.  DAM!  However they still operate a toll free phone number which puts the Dam cfs report out at 6 am every morning.  the Dam number is 1-800-242-177,  I hope they don't take this Dam number down. 

OK, Dam good job Alliant Energy,

Have fun on the river and be dam careful out there.

FYI- River predicted to get to over 18 ft at Portage by Monday. That means a thirty thousand plus CFS at Sauk. They are already going to thirty thousand at Castle Rock.  Might want to seek another fishing destination this weekend. Rat.

Males only caught, not milking at all. Heard females spawned out days ago. Caught 15 close to old locks by the dam. Mostly 12-15.5 inches. DNR checked every boat, said everyone behaving today. Think walleyes maybe done with the spawn.

This section of the river, especially near the dam, needs to be visited more consistently by the DNR.  I cannot believe the amount of violations regarding undersized fish that I observe every time I am here.  Calling the tip hotline doesn't seem to help, I have yet to see a warden make it there in time to catch the offenders. I guess I am hoping that posting on here will get others motivated to call when they see the same issues.  Oh yeah, caught 21 total yesterday, HJ 10s, biggest was 17".  Fun day overall.
