Set the water at 6:45. Left at noon. Tried a lot of different spots. Caught one bass. Good night even get a bite on minnows, worms, or grubs. Bluegills are hiding somewhere. Beautiful morning until the wind picked up.

Nman1 and fishloveme thanks for your help
Yes I'm pretty sure the river between the two lakes is open! Took my kids for a boat ride yesterday to show them where I used to live in Monona on the river and holy crap I've never seen so many boats on that sandbar! It's been a few years since I've navigated up the river there but it sure is changing too! Half the island has eroded away the last few years with all the high water we had!
springs, yes as of early August the Yahara was navigable betwen waubesa, mud and monona. Would assume it will always stay open as lots of people travel it.
76° - 80° F

Fished today from 10 am til 2 pm with my daughter. We caught a mixed bag of perch, bluegill, white bass and sheephead. All but two of the perch were really small. Most of the bluegills were small too. Kept 10 total fish for a meal. It was super wavy out there and only got worse when the pleasure boaters arrived. Now I remember why I don't fish out here often in the afternoon!
Is there any news on the dredging of the channel between Monona and Waubesa? Is it still navigable? Thanks in advance..:)
Fished from 8 to 11 this morning. Caught 1 12 inch crappie, 2 perch and 18 gills. Personal best gill of 10 inches. Moved to Verona 2 months ago. Still learning Waubesa. Biggest gills were caught in or just outside of weeds in 7 to 9 feet of water
Very slow today, maybe due to the poor water clarity. Couldn't find any consistent bite in our usual spots, both deep and shallow. Another boat we talked to said it's been slow for 3 days now. May be OK by Sunday.
How is the water quality out there? I'm looking to get out this Sunday to try to get a few gills for dinner, but last time i was out the water was pretty bad. Thanks!
Went out 7/31 from 6:30-9:30pm. Water temps around 80 degrees. Air temp about 70. Mud hole, bike bridge and buoy reef out front of Christies. Nothing. Didn't see anybody else pull anything up either. Bugs get bad on Mud at dusk, not bad on main lake. Beautiful night to be out either way.
