WI River Water Levels/Reports

1 post in this topic

For those of us who witnessed the 10ft+ rise in water levels this spring, you will be glad to know that it is almost back to normal.The dams have closed most of the open locks and the water is back in the channel, though still a foot high or so.

Unfortunatley this long high water period timed perfectly with the walleye run and spawn, and the fish are spawned out now that the river is fishable. However they are still in the shallow spring haunts and under the dams. I was out last week and caught 30+ eyes in a couple of hours in a rocky fast currented area only 3-4 feet deep, though no great size. Artificials and live bait are both producing. Channel cats and carp have started to put the feedbags on in the main channel also, mostly under the dams.

The backwaters are starting to warm up, and I've been seeing some crappies and bass becoming active in the deeper backwaters. There are some eyes and perch hanging out around the wood in the backwaters as well, but doubt they will remain there long. Key seems to be in the backwaters with access to deeper water.

Will be out in the boat the next couple of days either on the lakes or river, and will report.

    • You know I'm kidding!
    • It really doesn't matter if Trump fails to concede, his party, that's already deserting, will do it for him. 
    • Let's keep one thing in mind if we want to revisit the FL vote recount:  Mr. Gore did not start whining and crying rigged and fraud two months before the actual election. If was only after it appeared the count was incorrect that Gore and his party asked for a recount. And as I recall it was Gore himself who finally said "okay, enough is enough, end it." There is little doubt in my mind the final count in this years presidential election is going to be so lopsided in favor of Mrs. Clinton there will be no legitimate reason for a recount.  
    • What was the popular vote? What was the Electoral vote? Why did they want the recount in Florida?   Wouldn't  you also want that recount from the State that cost you the Election with many votes being questioned? (CHADS) What was the difference in Florida in popular vote?   When everything was decided in the correct way Gore did accept and said so.
    • Uh, from the taxpayers of various types of course.  Or was that some sort of rhetorical question for effect?  
    • Y'all do recall al gore  and his reaction to being defeated.  He refused to concede for weeks after the election.  Wanted to keep counting and recounting until he won.    And the Democrat party refused to accept the results for years... 
    • From the middle and upper middle income people!
    • $5 says the election won't even be close enough to demand a recount and the crybaby whining will be unprecedented.
