Fishing - What's Biting and When!
The famous Wolf River Walleye Run begins at mid-month and continues through all of April at brisk pace. The larger Walleyes are taken at the onset of the run.
Walleye fishing still in full swing. During the last week White Bass begin to appear. Northern Pike and Crappie also bite well.
Good catches of Walleye mixed with White Bass in first week, then mostly White Bass for the remainder of the month. Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Crappie, Bluegill and Catfish do quite well in the third week and continue into June.
Best time for Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass. Generally good catches of all species. Walleye fishing excellent by drifting and trolling lakes Poygan and Winneconne. Larger Perch are taken now.
Northern Pike near large week beds. Pan fishing good in most areas. Occasional schools of White Bass found in deep spring fed holes.
Motor-trolling nets good catches of mixed bag species. Early morning and late evening best. Fishing guides can turn these “dog days of August” into pleasant fishing.
Fall spawning run of White Bass getting started and peaks towards end of month. Walleye activity increases; run starts by end of month.
White Bass good to excellent first two weeks. Walleye fishing good throughout month as run peaks. Trolling in deeper parts of river or night fishing on the bridge most productive.
