1.) I hit the Rock River today.
Fished between Kmart and Fort Atkinson. Walleye are biting, but they are running small. Saw a bunch of fish caught from deep water hole betwen the wing dam above the 106 bridge down to Starpole. I didn't see any walleye, in my boat or in any of the others, anywhere near legal. Our largest was a 13 3/4 and that was a monster compared to some of the ones we saw caught. Action can be had, but keepers will be hard to come by.
Water was between 38-40 degrees, and the fish were still as hard as rocks.
2.) The Okauchee Lake Public Launch will be closing for a few months while the long planned expansion is completed. According to sources this will occur as soon as Wednesday, April 1st and may last into late June.
3.) Panfish are starting to bite on the local lakes. Focus on dark bottom shallow bays with a north facing shoreline, and look for green weeds and slightly warmer water. Until the water temperature gets up a bit, waxworms or spike on a number 12 red hook below a bobber will outproduce most other presentations.
4.) Time to renew your fishing license if you haven't already done so.
