"I will be camping in the area next month and own a 21’ fish and ski and want to fish the Wisconsin river. Will I have any issues launching or navigating this section of the river?"


Rock bar down river is marked with sign that reads something like "no rental boats past this point" and rock bar up river where the river bends to the dam, if you stay between those bars and have common sense you'll be fine.

I will be camping in the area next month and own a 21’ fish and ski and want to fish the Wisconsin river. Will I have any issues launching or navigating this section of the river?

Fished yesterday between 4:30 and 8:30.  All fishing was done between the dam and rapids.  Picked up around 25 fish - 3 eyes(2legal), 4 super large whitebass and the rest were sm.  No live bait - some decent too water action.  There were a lot of people fishing both sides of the river below the dam . Used mostly salmo hornets and rapala skitter pops.  Few fish on plastics.  All fish released as always.

Report from last weekend:  Overall decent, while water level was up and down.

Fished Friday morning from boat between rapids and county O boat launch with 2 buddies.  We caught about 27 fish, but it was a healthy mix of smallies and sheephead, as almost everything we caught was on a Wolf river rig and crawler off the bottom - one sheep on minnows.  I did finally manage to catch one decent bass on a crankbait, pictured.  So much more exciting to catch them that way - kudos to you who have regular success on artificials (and PM me with lure ideas!).  I also lost about a 4 foot sturgeon - it jumped and I made a critical error and the line snapped.  Next time.

Saturday fished morning, afternoon and evening (afternoon very slow) with the same mix of sheephead and smallies and finally at last cast of evening, my buddy got a decent walleye, also on rig and crawler.

Sunday morning not much going on near the dam on either the power plant side or Mexicali Rose side - a couple of smallies and sheep and my other buddy got a walleye on a crawler.  Sunday afternoon from shore back downstream - not much luck - sheep, smallies, and a redhorse for good measure.

Will try again next month.  Judging from the number of posts on here, I should be the only one out on the water!  Hope to hear some details of others' success.

Fishing still remains solid! Lots of nice smallies/largemouth. 

Water temp has  been in the upper 70’s to lower 80’s

Water really started dropping last week, 2 weeks ago water was up in the roots along the tree line on shore, fish were tight to shore out of the current. This past week water levels are around summertime pool and the fish have backed up off the banks in to deeper water, still lots of great action to be had.

Anyone looking to book a trip I still have a few evenings open the next 2 weeks and a couple days open for full/half day trip.

Good luck be safe!

Late report from last weekend, cant quite figure the walleye out, but I can catch smallies all day haha. Caught probably 50 or more with half of em being 15 or bigger biggest being 18”. One 15” walleye still swimming. I gave up live bait, just sheepshead hitting them, and just bass fished! 3 hrs sat morning 4 hrs Sunday evening lower dells, 3 hrs Monday morning upper dells. Not nearly as much as id like to but gotta keep the family happy also. Hoping to make it back around labor day! Beautiful river as always
