Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for July 28, 2016

1 post in this topic

The coming weekend's weather should bring an improvement over the rapid fluctuations of last weekend, which made angling, among other outdoor pursuits, so difficult. The hot and humid weather is starting to relent. That heat met with rain and thunderstorms in the southern counties, much of it falling over the weekend, bringing as much as seven inches near Madison. Northern counties have experienced light rains on and off over the past several days, totaling around an inch in most areas. The result has been slowly falling temperatures, with expectations for the weekend hovering between the mid-70s and 80s. This is welcome news for most outdoor enthusiasts, whether they're angling from the shore or biking on a trail. While mosquitos have also responded to the recent precipitation and will be out and about, DNR staff members have been making their rounds, smoothing trails and removing fallen trees and branches. Water levels throughout the Northwoods are still running a little above average. Anglers there are seeing more consistent success with follows and some strikes from musky. Also remaining steady is the panfish bite, with decent catches of crappie, bluegill and perch. Bass are proving more difficult to coax, with largemouth spending time near many different types of cover. Smallmouth are spending most of their time near the weedy edges. While several walleye between 20 and 27 inches were reported over the last few weeks, most of the action for the species is still limited.
