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.

Here is a fishing video from about two weeks ago on the river. I caught many small walleye and sauger and two keepers this day. Lately I've been catching some a lot of short fish on the river also

I fished yesterday from noon to 5 pm. Drifted the area right around the Dam for about an hour with only a couple of fish. Hit a spot where they were stacked and caught fish constantly for three hours. Most were very small sauger and walleye, 8-12 inches long. I got a few around 14" and nothing even close to 18". But it was fun and that is what fishing is suppose to be. Used a wolf river rig with a #8 gold aberdeen hook and minnow. When I went back down the river there were a lot of small logs floating around in the pool where the water was coming out of the dam.
