Made the first trip to the rainbow flowage this morning. All fish came on slip bobbers and jigs. All 3 live baits...minnows..crawlers.. leeches.. Seemed as though everything was hungry. We caught a sucker..rock bass..smallmouth [released].. 5 or 6 northerns..perch..and over 20 walleyes. And too many bullheads. Fished 4 spots mostly 15 to 18 fow..

How u think the fishing will be at the dam?

Anyone know what the water level is?
Anyone have any tips for fishing this flowage on opener for either walleye or crappie? I'm not sure where the walleyes head to spawn on it. Do they head up the north-east channel on the Wisco river or do they hang around the dam from Pickerel? Have only fished it in September and really only had any luck in the narrowing by the Wisconsin river.

Started at noon in 10' of water tip ups were scattered at 5-10' got bit off asap, missed one perch left and right on plastics and waxies. Orange was the going color. Moved at 3pm to 15' foot set flags in 9 feet 2 ft off bottom,on a flat. Walleyes were on the move dozen flags in a hour. Need smaller trebles, with 14 lb leaders all which I didn't have. Smaller shiners were the best. But still can't find a crappie marked two fish in 15, landed one 18" eye and one northern
Anyone fishing the Northside yet? Looking to go this weekend
I would be very very very very careful taking anything on the rainbow yet, went out Saturday off hwy J and once I got about 600 yards out, I hit a pressure crack that was 5 feet wide, the ice was 1.25 inches measured on a rule.
