Trying to find some info on the wide area of the river above the upper dells narrows. It almost looks like a natural lake. Any info on depth, structure and fish would be appreciated. Muskies in there?

For this Christmas Day solo trip I went to the upper dells out of Illinois Ave
There was a group of ice anglers running tipups on Crandalls Bay didn't see much action
As rivers go ice varied, but was clear and strong 6-1/2" to 8"+ in some spots
I drilled along the Tour Boat ramps trying to locate Crappies and Gills hiding in the rail beams anywhere from 3 to 13 FOW marked several fish (carp!?) that just stood there like Christmas ornaments
Ended up bringing two walleyes through the hole on the palm rod with a tungsten jig tipped with a green LHCB green nanotail
Lookers only on the Northland spoons and Jigging Rapala
Hope you have a safe Holiday and unwrap some wonderful presents
Fished of the river rd launch today and had a solid 6 inches there.Decent gill action and a few crappie.Kept 6 ills and 3 crappie for a meal.
PM me if you can. Thanks!
