Fishing Report 10-12-11

Just a quikie today, conditions are about to change and I'll have a full report up for the weekend.

Musky are moving, but many fish are still holding in 12-18 FOW. Fish are coming a bit shallower on Pewaukee by most reports, and deeper on Fowler, Lac Labelle and Oconomowoc.

Okauchee has been the most consistent according to the information I am getting, and lots of fish are being moved off the rocky areas near the Party and the North East Island. A couple of people seeing reported a large fish (50 inch class) moving around on the flats in Stumpy Bay on the warmer, but cloudy afternoons the last week.

Walleye fishing is still slow on the Rock River between Jefferson and Blackhawk Island, but a few whitebass and catfish are being caught. The Wisconsin River in the Dells has seen activity pick up, but the warm temperatures are holding up the usual fall fishing. Local lakes have been giving up a few walleyes, but reports from Labelle, Nagawicka, Pine and Oconomowoc all report spotty fishing.

Pike have been slow, but the smaller lakes like School Section, Pretty, Lower Genessee and Ashippun have been producing.

Crappies are on the fall bite. Look for them along green weed edges in 8-15 FOW.

Water is in the low 60's on all area lakes. I'll check in after the weather with updated conditions.
