Hot weather has slowed down the white bass, but if you find some & are patient it will pay off. Jig & minnow worked best.
Wolf River - Fremont
Cold weather is what makes the fish migrate up river from Winnebago. The shad and shiners go up river which makes the walleyes and whitbass follow them. The cold weather makes the fish feed heavy before winter sets in. Rain has nothing to do with the fall bite. Last week Monday you couldn't keep the whitebass off your flys in oshkosh. Water temp was 63 degrees. Today not even a bite few bait fish around that was it. 70 degree water temp today.

Went out Saturday, very slow. Caught a couple of fish on rock wall before 8 am and the pleasure boaters came out. The rest of the day was a wash, way too much traffic to fish. Talked to the other fisherman and same story very slow, with some sheep and small whites being caught. Maybe cold weather would help.

New school of white bass made it to wall and some better size. Walleyes early and late yet on wall and mouth. Crappies still hanging in deeper cooler water mostly trees. Should be a fun weekend. We just got a full tank of fresh shiners too.

Had a decent day on the Wolf yesterday and caught a little bit of everything. Between a buddy and myself we caught around a dozen Gills, 8 Crappie, 5 eyes, 2 smallies, a small flathead, and a bunch of goats and suckers.
I was pitching a Carolina rig tipped with a minnow or crawler halfs and my buddy was using a fly tipped with a crawler half on a WRR. We found the Walleyes by a steep rocky shoreline in about 10 feet of water. The Crappie were hanging by tree fall about 12 feet down, and the Gills were about 14 feet down. Vertical presentation / slow jigging worked best.
The Crappie were on the smaller side but still fun to target. Nice snap in air in the AM, fall is coming!
