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?

Merry Christmas!

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

Safe travels all the way to the dam. There is a stump field before you get to the narrows but it poses no hazard. All your hazards are visible. If you're going to fish the narrows, I'd recommend fishing as close to the walls as you can while operating the boat safely. Easier said than done with all the jet boat and tourist traffic. There are shelves on many of the walls that will hold bass, walleye, and catfish. Just got to find them. Haven't spent much time there this year but a lot of time fishing the last 3 or 4 years. If the water is high and current fast, the walleye will stack up in slack areas. If not, good luck finding them. Crappie, bluegill and bass fishing seems to have slowed the last 2 years. There are a ton of small smallies to be found, The big ones take a lot of work. There is no map card for this area. If you have a decent graph and know how to read it you should do ok. This area is overrun with carp. A couple different species we've caught on hook and line. Also caught musky and white bass. Jig and 4" Gulp minnows seems to work best for the larger fish and smaller Gulp for the panfish.

I have not seen a report on this stretch of water in a long time. I was there yesterday for the first time ever and it looks to be a good stretch of water. In the narrows section there were fishing surfacing and chasng minnows....probably smallmouth. I did not catch anything, but only fished for a little while around the big island in the downed trees. I do not need anyone's secret spot but where would a good starting point be? Also, my chip does not work on this stretch of river. Are there stump fields or rock piles I could run into if I stay south of the sandbars by river bay? Any information would be helpful.

As previous posters have said River Bay and that area of the river has really silted in over the years there is not a lot of water column between the ice and the muck at the bottom. As you move out into the river the muck will change to a sand bottom with depth increasing. PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION ICE FISHING THIS SECTION OF THE RIVER. There is a lot of current in this part of the river that can make for VERY unsafe ice conditions. If you are unfamiliar with the area I would recommend fishing other bodies of water in the area to stay safe. I am not trying to keep you away, I just want to see other fisherman stay safe.

Hey everyone! Looking for some info on the river between/around Louis' bluff and Shadduck creek (Just north or River Bay rd). Ice conditions and a suggestion where to look for a couple panfish. Taking a weekend vacation and have never fished the WI River... don't have a clue where to start.

PM me if you can. Thanks!
