The river is high again. Caught a few small walleyes and a couple of goats. Really couldn't fish the spots I like but was still nice to be on the water.
The walleye fishing in the river during the summer can be really good. Unless you're fishing at night, I would spend most of my time below plank hill. I consistently catch more of my slot fish in the river and the backwaters after spawn than I do on the lake. You just have to work harder. The best part is, there is generally less fisherman in the river from June through August than there is on the lake.
Have been on the river a couple of times in the past few weeks and the best day I had was when we had high water. Otherwise for me it's been a little slow. Mostly sheepshead and a few cats. The walleyes I have caught were small. Good luck ??
Anyone fishing the river? Or does everyone prefer the lake in the summer?
Gonna try to get out for probably my only attempt at some walleye this year due to personal health issues, a surgery, and a new baby coming days after I should be recovered from my surgery. Thanks in advance!
I would gladly donate $$ to buy security cameras to dissuade or help prosecute people who litter. Money well spent
Fished from shore for a couple of hours earlier today down near Plank Hill. The good news is I managed 7 walleyes including a 16.5” keeper plus a 22” catfish. The bad news is I picked up a 5 gallon bucket of litter just around where I was sitting. Disgusting! Mono line, bottles, cans, plastic cups, plastic bags, rubber disposable gloves, and various packaging from misc. fishing tackle. What the hell is wrong with people these days?!
Fished for couple hours using plastic bag, they are still there, just tougher to catch
Fished from shore for a couple of hours and only caught one white bass. Saw a few others caught but it wasn't hot and heavy. Will get the boat in the water in a couple of days and try it again.
Whitebass are still running strong. Seen couple walleyes also get caught a
Whitebass are in Full Effect, over 100+
