My dad grew up in Fenimore and fished the river a lot. By the time I came along he had discovered walleyes on the Miss.

I got him to take me over quite a bit when I was a kid. Cats are good in deeper spots along the bank. Smallmouths same deal. Both around trees laying in the water.

Pretty much need to use the boat to get around to multiple spots. There's pretty good fishing once you figure it out. But that takes some time.

I taught Galen Bremmer from Avoca the walleye thing on the Miss. If you wanted to try a guide he might be worth talking to. It is a stunning piece of river down there. Good luck.

Went out Friday night for cats near Boscobel. I'm just trying to learn how to fish the river, I've lived here for a long time and have never really given it a good try. Stayed out  on shore until midnight on Friday and got one nice channel cat. In the morning I got the boat out and got one nice walleye up a tributary. Only two fish I caught but they were nice ones!

I got a few ideas from my experience, but I'm always looking for more. If you have any river tips (especially for cats) feel free to PM me! I'm mostly trying to learn how to read a river and know where cats are likely to be. I grew up in Northern Wisconsin and fished lakes my whole life but have almost no river experience.

 The river right now is the lowest i have seen it this year, smallies were very active but nothing big enough to keep, i hit one spot off a sandbar drop off where they were schooling and chasing minnows, produced 8-9 smallies, i fished a few areas where there were downed trees and i got 2 keeper walleyes, they were definitely holding tight to cover, plenty of gars stealing the tails off of baits

Got out on the Lower Wisconsin for a couple of hours.  What a beautiful day!  Caught a few nice smallmouths, the largest was this 20 incher.  The water temp. is in the mid 50's and river levels are nice, in the 4 foot range at the Muscoda guage.  

Hoping we can get though these troubling times and get back to things normal.  As soon as I can, we will offer our guide services again.  Thanks for reading my reports and stay safe and healthy!

Good week fishing the Lower Wisconsin.  Monday I fished with Mel and Melody for smallmouth.  They caught some very nice fish including the one Melody tricked into hitting a texas rigged tube.  Wednesday I slipped out and fished catfish for a couple of hours.  Fished crawlers and Sonny's cheese bait.  Caught these two nice fish along with a good size buffalo on a crawler. Since then, the water has dropped a ton.  Down over a foot in a couple of days.  The current flow is down to 17,000 cfs, down from 31,000 a little over a week ago.Getting into summer patterns now.  The water temp. was 67 degrees my last time out.

Thanks for reading my reports and have a good weekend!

Fished this morning with Grant and his son, Matt for smallmouth on the Lower Wisconsin.  I thought it might be tough after the rain and rising water on the river, but as usual, I was wrong!  They caught atleast 25 in the four hours we were out.  Nothing real big, but nice solid fish.  Looked like most of them were males, so the spawn might be on or just over with.  We caught them all on texas rigged tubes pitched or casted to shoreline cover.  The water temp was 62, the flow 31,100 cfs, water level up 1.5 feet since my last report.

I was scheduled to fish on the Mississippi the next several days which got cancelled so I have some time the next few days if anyone wants to get out for some of this great smallmouth action!

Thanks for reading my reports and have a good week!

Fished yesterday afternoon with Conner and Nick targeting smallmouth.  They had a good day catching a dozen or so very nice fish.  Conner boated this beauty on our last spot of the day!  The water temperature dropped 4 degrees from the day before down to 56 due to the cold rain and cloudy weather.  

Thanks for reading my reports and have a good week!

Yesterday afternoon's smallmouth trip went well with the guys boating over 20 very nice fish casting tubes along shoreline cover.  Also picked up this nice sauger.  The river has been holding nearly steady the last several days and is still very clear, despite the amount of rain we've been getting.  The water temperature was just over 60 degrees yesterday.

Out again tomorrow if we can dodge the rain and thunderstorms!  Have a good weekend, and if you're looking for something to do, the Muscoda Morel Mushroom Festival is this weekend.  Lots of fun for the whole family!

Smallmouth fishing continues to be very good here on the Lower Wisconsin River.  Been out on the river a few hours the last few days and have had good success catching nice fish like this 18 incher.  Most fish are coming on a texas rigged soft plastics bait pitched along shoreline cover.

The river has fallen down to the 5 foot level and appears to have leveled off.  Raining here now, with forecasts for a couple of inches.  That won't help water levels and clarity, but we'll have to see what happens.  The rain won't hurt the morel mushroom harvest though!  Speaking of that, don't forget the Muscoda Morel Mushroom Festival next weekend.  (May 18-19)  Lots of fun for the whole family.  Go to www.muscoda.com for all the info.

Thanks for reading my reports and have a good week!

The river has dropped close to 3 feet since my last report.  Having good success catching a bunch of chunky smallmouth bass the last few days.  The water is as clear as I've seen it.  Current flow is way down from the record flows of last week. Now all we need is some dry, warm weather!

Thanks for reading my reports and have a good weekend!
