I'm a CNR guy looking for a good time on the wolf. How's the small mouth population above Shiocton during the summer months? I'll be spending a weekend up there camping and would like to do a drift down to the Koepke launch. TIA
Wolf River Shiocton , Outagamie County
depending on what stretch your talking about either the little wolf, or embarrass river dump in.
So why is New London the same?
Reducing the water flow at the Shawano dam would quickly flood the areas above there up to the village of Keshena. Upstream of Keshena the river has a rapid rate of descent and offers no water hold back storage capability. The culprit in the Shiocton flooding is the railroad bridge as all water must pass thru that bottleneck. As you travel upstream from Shiocton 10 or so miles to the County Hwy F bridge the river basin has a tremendous water volume holding capacity with all the flooded river bottom. That basin is full and then some pushing all that water into the town bottleneck causing the flooding.
Close the dam in shawanno, the wolf in the reservation can handle some water, went through today
46° - 50° F
Tried to launch our boat at Koepkes this morning, I've never seen it so flooded. The entire parking lot was under water, and so was part of the road. Not even kidding when I say boats were driving themselves into the parking lot, and then guys would put them on their trailers without even moving their truck. See attached. If you go there, bring your waders.
Got 2 males before 8 am upriver of shiocton and thought it was game on then nothing and quit at 1pm. Mostly caught fish early all on jig n minnow, none on my river rigs, but some mid day and a few before sunrise in my 5 day spring break. One was tagged and from oshlosh.Never more than 4 in a day and skunked Sunday..great trip, nice folks on the river..a couple pics..I was the guy in the blowup boat..
Thank you! I couldn't find that....
