Out on Thurs.  A few little small mouths and under sized walleyes.  I did catch my 1st 2 whitebass of the year, and they were both nice size.  The biggest one was pushing 16 inches and the other one was over 12.   A couple of fish came on swimbaits, but the majority liked the 1/2 crawler drifted with the current.

Weds Evening smallmouth Bassin on a South East Wisconsin River. (if you recognize the location please don't name it)

Nothing big but still better than sitting at home :-)

Decent Saturday on the water. Temps 78-79, fish seemingly active 800AM-noon. Caught a handful of cats under 10" not pictured, and then a couple of each pictured.

Case Eagle is a waste of time unless the water is high. Usually a few days after a big rain when the water clears up. The the previous guy said, spring walleye and white bass runs and fall walleye. Use to do well below the Waterford dam and library before the draw downs in the winter few years back and its slowly coming back. My go to is technically not the fox river but echo dam in Burlington which is a few hundred yards up river from where the white and fox rivers merge. Every type of fish is in there and you can catch fish on anything but again it’s dependent on the water level on what’s there and there is ALWAYS people fishing there.

The Fox in southeastern Wisconsin is a pretty shallow river, I don’t think I’ve seen more than 14 feet anywhere, with the overwhelming majority being less than 5 feet. 

For Case Eagle Park (or by the Waterford Dam) I don’t believe anything is as effective as an orange and chartreuse twister tail, casting the current seams. 

For slower sections of the river, I see folks frequently cast to the middle of the river (as far as they can cast from shore), from my experience, most fish are within a few feet of the shoreline. Not always, but the majority of the time.

Also, the best catfish bait is a simple nightcrawler under a bobber, 3 feet from shore, tree fall, rocks, any kind of structure, they are tight to shore. They are usually pretty active too, sometimes your bobber goes under darn near the second it hits the water

Look at a map of the Fox in both Waterford and Burlington, there is easily a dozen parks you can fish from.  

Case Eagle park is likely my least favorite place to fish the fox river, with the exception of spring white bass, and fall walleye - most times, fishing is not great there.

Tried a couple spots today. Case Eagle Park and below the library. Admittedly I am not well versed in river fishing. I was letting crawlers drift in the current under a slip float with no luck. Would anyone be willing to assist me with spots or techniques? I mean I’ll keep trying either way, but if I could cut down on drive time looking for places that’d be a big first step...

Only found one Walleye today, but did find some Gills, Rock Bass, Drum, and kitties.  Did mange one tiny Smallie too, he was a cute little bugger, maybe 4 inches...

Same deal as yesterday, Carolina Rigs tipped with a slow death rig / crawler half.

Water is down quite a bit today too...

I should add, eight of the nine were between 15 and 17 inches.  The biggest one was 23...

With one small guy being around 8 inches...

You know the spot friend, we used to duck hunt there back in the day!

Was really surprised to find walleye biting in 5 feet of water, when the water temp is darn near 80°
