Upcoming dates, fishing report 3-2-12

First...a reminder that gamefish season closes on Sunday, and here's what the DNR had to say yesterday:

Waukesha County - Recent warm temperatures are causing unsafe ice conditions on many local lakes. Shoreline ice on local lakes has deteriorated considerably in the past week and access is becoming limited. Anglers are reminded to always check current ice conditions before attempting access. Anglers are also reminded that permanent ice shanties must be removed by Sunday March 4, but are strongly encouraged to remove them earlier due to deteriorating ice conditions. The southern game fish season also closes on Sunday March 4.

In terms of fishing: The Milwaukee Harbor has been providing consistent action. The Wisconsin River in the Dells has been very productive some days, less so on other days, but the walleyes are biting in the deep holes.

Closer to home: The Rock River in Jefferson-Ft Atkinson is open. The water is very low, so watch your lower units. People are reporting lots of rough fish, but the walleyes haven't moved in. I expect that to change when the weather warms up after this snowfall.
