I'm sure you are aware, but the reports are starting to trickle in from the early season open water river spots around the area.
The latest I have:
Depere: Open water, and docks are in. Large flows coming down. Water is high.
Dells: Open water. Walleyes in the slot, as well as some keepers starting to turn up. Fish slow and deep, in the slack water adjacent to the current.
Jefferson/Ft Atkinson: Shore fishing by the Jefferson/Indianford dams has been slow, but steady. Still lots of ice in the river..not ready for boats yet.
Oshkosh: Ice getting thin. Ice fisherman at the mouth filmed this video of a school of fish starting to stage for the run. Check it out here.
Full reports will start backup next week. In the meantime, I'll be getting my boat out this weekend.
