Hit up some backwater sloughs on the Wisconsin River. Ice conditions were deteriorating, but was able to find some decent panfish.

Got out twice over the weekend, but nothing to show for it.

On Saturday afternoon, spent about 90 min at a spot off of Hwy 23 at the suggestion of someone here. Liked the structure and that I was throwing into the main river, but couldn't get anything interested. Saw 6-7 fish splashing topwater in the time I was there, though never enough to ID. Decent currents, eddy areas and such.

This afternoon I went to the Riverside Resort area as well as walking the trail back to Cynthia Slough. Saw a couple medium LMB towards the end of my time, and again some visual evidence of fish in the area, at least one being a bigger LMB crashing the surface at shad or bugs, but nothing to show.

Not a lot of posts in this thread but worth a shot....I'm coming to Spring Green for my wife's HS reunion over this weekend and would like to throw from shore a couple different times, see what I can hook up with bass wise. I've tried over by Riverside previously, though it was well before I had any idea what I was doing.....any other decent shore fishing locations? I was reading about Mill Creek area some today, and Peck's Landing isn't far away, but don't find much for quality of fishing there...I like that either, if accessible, are the main body of the river at least, Riverside was back waters and I may try there for some LMB anyway. Really would like to hook a smallie or two, huge size isn't my goal, species is.

PM is fine too, I have it active.

I wish I could offer up some decent information on walleyes, but they eluded me this past Saturday when I ventured out.

I tried from the launch on Y to about the Ferry Bluff area. It was my first time on this stretch of the river and I had little luck. I was fishing from my kayak so it was hard to stay put, I have an anchor but I forgot to bring it. I managed one very nice crappie and a few minor smallmouth. Missed a nice northern and had a few other misses. There did appear to be some nice stretches of water though, but from my kayak I have to guess as to where some of the deeper holes reside based on my limited experience on fishing rivers in general. Hundreds of canoes out made it a little tough stick on a stretch... though it sure beats power boats.

Fished this stretch of river for a few years and always had relative success with smallmouth, catfish and walleye. I am excited to get out early this year towards the middle of march. I have never had success catching largies or northern on this stretch. Does anyone catch largies below the sauk dam and beyond? Any tips for northern/largemouth fishing on this stretch would be awesome.

Anybody happen to know anything about the Mazomanie boat launch? I tried to look it up and both bing and google maps made it look like a farm field across Y from the river. If somebody could provide a description of the facility beyond what the DNR page lists, I'd be grateful! It's listed as a Dane County public launch, but I'd prefer to launch into a body of water and not a farm field, if at all possible, and I'd appreciate any help I can get. Also, I was wondering if the river had dropped low enough to be a potential navigational hazard to the uninitiated angler? Thanks in advance!

Motored up from Spring Green as far as we could to find a sandbar to fish and swim off...it was HOT! But the river was very refreshing. Didn't catch a whole lot but, managed a hand full of smallies on worms and topwater...two soft shell turtles and my daughter caught a 19 walleye in the middle of the river with a spinnerbait! Was a great day on the water and my girls were mad we had to leave...will be back.
