Have hit the river 3 times in the past week and a half. Did some jigging and trolling. Haven't had much success. Also casted for skis and lost 2 and had another follow. Seems like all the fish are hitting short. Not sure if it's me or what.
Wisc. River - Nekoosa (Walleyes)
Coming up this weekend and is it worth fishing the river or should i just stick with the lake? thanks
81° - 88° F
Are they catching them below the damn or does a person have to go further down pointe bass road to fish for white bass? I'm only able to fish from shore with my daughter. Any extra tips would be appreciated. Thank you
Guys are catching them in the river but the best fishing was a few weeks ago. The last 5 that I caught were are males are barely milting. The ones on trips before that were spawned out females.
With that being said you can still get plenty of white bass in the river all summer long.
Can anyone comment on the prior 2 reports/questions that were asked??? I'm sure 'someone' was out fishing this weekend... I'd like to know what the White Bass are up to as well. Are they done and heading back down river yet?!?
Does anyone know of any shore fishing where white bass are being caught in the Nekoosa/Rapids area still?
Was wondering if there's any whitebass still biting? And has the catfish bite picked up? Thanks
White bass bite this past week has been very good with warmer water temp!
Guys are catching them all over from shore and out in the boats.
We have been fishing the Nekoosa Stretch of river in the morning before heading down river out on the main lake for walleyes.
Water temp has been in the upper 50's for most of the week, on Wednesday/Thursday we had water temp 60.5 in the morning and 63.4 in the afternoon.
3 ways and flies, purple/white and pink/white have been working the best for us. On cooler days were the water temp dropped we have been using 3 way butt instead of using a flie we used a red hook tipped with large fathead.
Anyone looking to get out on the water I have May - 22nd,25th,27th,28th and 29th still open!
Good luck, be safe!
