Rock River Update/fishing report 4-8-11

Well here we go:

Area Lakes:
There's still skim ice on several local lakes, expect the rain and warm temperatures this weekend to do away with the last remnants. Crappie fishing should get started very quickly, focus on dark bottom bays, boat channels, and shallow areas with green weeds, especially along the northern banks. Ashippun, School Section and Golden always turn on early, as well as sections of Okauchee (The Channel, Stumpy Bay and Icehouse Bay), the North end of Pine Lake and Nag (boat channels). Don't over look Lac Labelle or Fowler for crappies.

Musky are starting to appear in large numbers below the Oconomowoc River Dam. Take your polarized lenses over and check them out. The folks over at Musky Mike's assure me that the video is forthcoming.

Around the state:
Walleye runs are in full gear in the Dells, on the Wolf and at Depere. White bass are starting to appear.

Closer to home, the conditions on the Rock River are really hot. Becky from Dick Smith's says it has been one of the best years in awhile (that might have something to do with the fact that this is the first year in several where the flooding wasn't close to what one might describe as biblical).

Current is steady. with the water temperature rising.

Good luck, have fun and be safe.
