Bite was on today! All gates are closed but the chute is pushing alot of water. Partner did a morning trip. 3 keeper and lost another boat side. 30 or so fish on his trip. He called me with the report and my clients decided to make a move from the Dells to Castle Rock dam. Glad we did. We put 8 eyes 5 whitebass and a nice cat in the box. Well over 40 total fish for our afternoon. A few sturgeon as well.

Great afternoon out with a father daughter duo. Everything seemed to be biting today. Ended the evening with 2 legal walleye, 2 jumbo perch, a nice crappie 13 whitebass and a channel cat. Lots of small walleye, carp and a few sturgeon.
Gates are open and current is very fishable.
The walleye were slow to bite today.
But I did watch a kid hook into a muskie. He walked it downstream to where I was. He really didn't know how to land it.
Another kid walked up to see the action. So now I had 2 kids, a big muskie all standing around my fishing rock.
I told the how to keep the muskie on the line without breaking his 6 pound test line. Together, with a little coaching, they landed the fish and took a few pictures. The fish was 48 inches.
Those were 2 happy kids.
I fished below the dam for an hour Sunday morning. I caught a medium size muskie and a foot long eel.
No other fish seemed to want to bite.
Hit the Castle Rock dam today. The day quickly turned from a walleye outing into a perch trip. Ended the afternoon with 42 nice perch in the livewell. Caught a ton of short eyes as well as a few sturgeon. A few Perch were just starting to squirt eggs.
Very, very shallow water south of CR dam. Use the landing at the dam.
I have fished at Petenwell flowage and Petenwell dam extensively. I want to try Castle Rock dam (Wisconsin River below Castle Rock Dam) this year. Is there another place to launch a boat besides the one right by the dam? Much appreciated.
Was there for a little bit yesterday, gates are closed and fishing was slow, managed to catch a couple shortys and that was it
Are the gates open yet?
