It's been a few years, but I believe it's clear all the way up to HWY 32. I used to put in at the rest area up there and work my way down. Then one year I put in on the Pond and went upriver and realized I'd hit the spot I used to stop at. Not sure how much further upriver you can get past the rest area/launch, but trees in the channel were about the only thing I felt I needed to worry about, no shallow spots.

What’s the trick for navigating up river safely? My navionics chip doesn’t have depths for this body. Just don’t want to take out my prop.
Hi, I am going to fish the pond with the kids today or tomorrow from Oconto Falls East Side Beach Boat Launch from shore. Any tips? I am not looking to keep any fish, will target crappie and pumpkin. Thank you !
Kayak and smallie. Yes there is musky in the falls pond. I'm one of the few that fishes them. They where planted in 1920 and have natural reproduction. Some could even be from going over the dam from chute. It's nice to see you got a little guy hope for the future. I'll add it does have a few tanks in it. My best is still 47" out there but have moved some better
Kayak, yes it was above the dam. It surprised me too. Thought it was a northern when it first hit and took off, and then went airborne. It was near the house across the river from monkey island, where they just took that barn down.
51° - 55° F
66° - 70° F
Pretty slow today, the wind was brutal. A couple 10-12” smallies. Had the boat out not kayak.
We did “catch” a pole. We anchored in 8 fow and a pole came up with the anchor. Had to be dropped late last fall. Few snails attached and metal starting to pit.
Smallie Chaser, did you catch that Muskie above the dam in the Falls? I’ve lived in OF my whole life and never heard of a musky above the dam.
I measured 10" of snow. Lots of slush in the area i was fishing but other areas were not so bad. Managed 1 perch. Didn't mark or get any other fish. SLOW
About 38 mph. You shouldn’t need to ask on the wind you can get that from my weather app.
Went out Friday Jan 3rd from 11 - 2PM. Fished right in front of the east side beach. Ice ranged from 8-10-Inches. 6 tip ups were set out, 1 flag that produced a 24" Northern.
