I gave up fishing Lake Michigan, and am now focusing inland. I want to take my son out for fishing. I used to fish dams in Minnesota, but haven't tried any around here yet. Is there anyone who can give me some suggestions on where to try, ie. Rochester, Burlington, or Waterford? My son doesn't care what he catches, as he is even happy catching Gobies. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. PM if you like.

Went after some smallies with the fly rod last night. There was a massive black caddis hatch which was never going to help out. Caught a small walleye, missed a few, and lost a big smallie that I just couldn't keep away from a downed tree with my 5wt. He took one of my favorite flies, so I'm gunna need to get that back! Cool

Looking for a place to fish for some cats. I used to fish between the library dam and Rochester but it sounds like it's not really worth it. Any spots below rochester? Any help is appreciated.

fished between Rochester and Burlington. 3eater cats, 1 big smallie and alot of 12-13 inch walleys. Seems to be my fate this year. I have yet to catch any eater walleys, but it is good to see the smaller ones. Maybe later this year or next.

was fishing at burlington yesterday and waded down river for some channels...caught 8 total but they seem to not be around as before.Thinking maybe the low water has to do with them not swimming up stream as they should

Fished below the dam in burlington for a hour tonight just to get a line wet. Snagged a 12 inch smallie in the gut Wondering and caught a 15 inch walleye on a little spinner which will be my dinner tomorrow. Nothing else...went up to Case Eagle...water horrendously low...waste of time...saw someone catch a few bluegills....then i drove up to waterford behind the library...water horrendously low. I need to find some new shore fishing spots. Burlington is nice but it gets crowded alot Dull

Fishing before the Waterford Dam, or after the Rochester Dam has been good. Wehmhoff Park is in Burlington correct - after the Rochester dam?

Between the two dams, slow as all get out...

Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 66° - 70° F
Launched the kayak at Wehmhoff Jucker Park at about 8 this morning and headed upstream a ways. I anchored in a few spots. Got 8 drum, 1 smallie, and a perch. All, except one, on crawler halves on the bottom. One drum caught on a 2" gulp. Fishing really slowed down after 11 so I ended up drifting back down and pulling out at about noon. I also seen a beaver, muskrat, and a deer. The wildlife was great to see while fishing this morning.

Now all they need to do is release some of these guys above the Waterford dam! Fox River between Rochester and Silver Lake.

Made it out last night for a couple of hours. I lost a really nice Smallie by the boat - he was around 20 inches. Also boated a Catfish.

Still no sign of any pannies or any Yellow Bass. Last year a guy could catch as many Yellow Bass as he wanted. This year, I've yet to catch a single one, or even a Gill or a Crappie.

Fishing is very slow between the Dams. Last year's drawdown is responsible for the huge decline in the fishery.

There is a Public Hearing on the drawdown on June 29 at 6 PM at Ives Groves Building which is located at 14200 Washington Avenue in Sturtevant WI.

Please note that this is not the hearing for an annual drawdown, rather a meeting for drawing the waterway down for dredging.

I used to support the dredging, but after seeing how one year damaged the fishery to the extent that it did, I no longer support it.
