Mississipi River - Prairie du Chien Area Fishing Report


Recommended Posts

As much as I love getting back to my old backwater stomping grounds around Winona and Lacrosse when the backwaters freeze over, I just can't get up there as much as I would like.

 

I made a couple trips to some backwaters around Prairie du Chien and Marquette/McGregor this all-too-short ice fishing season, and generally like what I found. Plenty of nice bluegills, a crappie here and there, plus perch, which are pretty much non-existent where I live in Johnson County.

 

I was on Graymore Lake today, and did well on panfish before noon. I caught a decent bass on my tip-up, and am pretty sure I saw not one but two walleye--yes, walleye--caught on that backwater as well. Some of the locals I talked to said the walleye have moved in there this winter due to the high water, and are not normally found there. 

 

The ice was still good today, but it sounds like it is going to go out quick with the warm-up. That is too bad, but I plan on getting up around there again next winter and checking the PDC area out some more.

Will up date this. All my info is coming from the Miss. face book page. The ice Is good, but watch areas with current. They have been doing well on blue gills, perch, and crappies! Not many reports on northern, but have been getting bass on tip ups.
