Weather for fishing opener never forgets to be chilly with a little rain to boot! Even a little snow.
Anglers reported doing better in the river vs the Lake. Early morning and evening bite has been best.
Sauger have helped fill some limits and smallies are beginning to perk up as well.
We’re looking forward to a great fishing season!
Rono group is finding some big ones!
Sturgeon season closes the 7th but catch and release goes to the 15th. In the midst of sturgeon, some larger walleye have been showing themselves as well. Hopefully setting us up for a great opening weekend!
Bruess Group~”We were up from Thursday thru Sunday and had a really tough time Thursday and Friday, but scraped out a few smaller ones. Saturday night and early Sunday morning before we left we had the best action. 57″, 2-59″, and a 60″. My sister was able to catch her first sturgeon on Thursday and her biggest was 53″.
Thanks for the update! Some great catches!
Wolf Group~64″,63″ and 60″
The bite started out slow last weekend, but by Sunday anglers were seeing more sturgeon action.
Today’s bite continued to pick up!
Winkelman Group~”Here’s some pics from our trip the weekend of the 11th-14th. Had a great time on the river and in the bay. Caught probably 150 fish in the 4 days on the water, 25 of them being sturgeon with a 56in being the largest. Turning into an annual trip for us! Can’t wait for next year already.”
Thanks for the pics!
Sturgeon prespawn right around the corner! Catch and release until the 24th and anglers continue to hit the river!
Water levels are really low, but we’re finally getting some much needed rain. The outlook on the week looks a bit chilly so bring extra gear!
We’ve come to the last day of 2015 walleye prespawn season. Sturgeon is now on deck!
Anglers remain on the river fishing catch and release. The weather has been awesome for it! The walleye bite has picked up now that the water temp has finally risen.
If you have photos you’d like to share from your trip send them our way!
Sturgeon prespawn starts April 24th! Looking forward to some large catches!
