Water is to low unless we get a lot of rain in the next month there will be no fall run. There are trillions of minnows in the lake and with no current coming down there is nothing to pull the fish. You need a 12’ water level to get a fall run that amounts to anything. Right now it’s got to be a good 8-12” below that.
Need more rain and colder nights they are duh in deep holes right now. We get a random one here and there early mornings or night but need more rain or some cold spells to get them really going.
Anyone gt news on eyes
61° - 65° F
71° - 75° F
Its not the rain dude their still working in the damn up stream , I mean yeah we could use the rain but......... As far as the lilacs they bloom when they bloom no offense they have nothing to do with the fish the whitebass were pretty hot and heavy 5 weeks ago you missed em
51° - 55° F
After dutifully waiting for the lilacs to bloom, I headed to Fort a couple of days ago hoping to catch a few white bass. It was worse than last year, and that was a pretty bad year, too.
The water level was lower than I had ever seen it and the usual shore spots were extremely shallow. Caught one dink walleye under a downed tree and that was it. Not even a wayward drum.
The water temperature still seems a bit cold, so I hope this warm spell helps a little. But, man, we need some serious rainfall. This is as late in the year as I have gone and never gotten a meal of white bass.
Hawk, I was out yesterday noon till 4, only boat between VFW and the mouth, and zero white bass. Very slow all the way around with just a couple eyes and a few goats.
Are the white bass running yet?
Anyone do well for musky? Any pics?
Just about any shore spot on the river will produce pike. I’d personally find spot with inlets to start or any of the number of dams on the rock River and you’ll find pike and maybe a few musky
Looking for good spot from shore with good chance to catch 30+ Pike.Will greatly appreciate it.Good Luck!
