gates at lock & dam 8 are going back into the water today as River levels continue to drop, creating outstanding fishing opportunities for at least the next several weeks. Water temp was just 61 yesterday. This will rise rapidly over the next several days, resulting in some outstanding bluegill fishing. of course, hungry pike won’t be far away. Bass and walleye action will also improve drastically with each passing day. The New Albin boat launch should be open again by Wed. afternoon, making access on the west side of the River much easier.
high water will still be a factor at launches on both sides of the River for awhile. At least water is warm enough now where Tevas are a better option than muck boots.
My july guide schedule is starting to fill up, but there are a bunch of openings this month and a pile of fish out there just achin’ to feel your hook!
