Went to my little spot on river people made it a junk pile n they tossed bunches bait in the water just really crapped up my fishing what's wrong with people I spent more time cleaning up rather than fishing. Well I caught one cat nothing special 5 pounder on cut.saw tons of carp.they are getting bad there right now.

Spinman- You can shore fish from Case Eagle Park - but it really is not a good spot to take the grandkids... For the most part you need waders and you cast into the current with Twister Tails. Case Eagle really isn't much of a bobber spot - although there is an area in the NE corner of the Dam where you could use a bobber. Without having Waders, Case Eagle is likely not your best option.

As far as Kayaking yesterday, it was a bunch fun. I found out that the deepest water (and best fishing)between Hwy. W and the Rochester Dam is close to the Dam within Case Eagle Park. The overwhelming majority of the river thereafter is knee deep.

We caught a Quill Back, 2 White Bass, and a soft shell turtle that hit a Twister Tail - thought that was kind of funny.

Really a nice trip from a kayaking standpoint - fishing was kind of a bust - really believe fishing by the dam is a better option on that stretch of river.

Going out tomorrow with a couple of buds. We plan to launch 3 yaks in Rochester and fish / kayak our way to Burlington.

I'll take some pics and post tomorrow. I've never been on the Fox River in a yak, canoe, or boat below the Rochester Dam so it will be a new experience.

Had a wonderful time on the river. Two hours out, twenty whitebass and a 12in smallie that hit my bait out of nowhere. Anyways, the river is in perfect condition. Hadn't had such a good time on the river. Slow action was the key on getting the white bass to bite. Good luck to those who are going out!

Was out today fir a couple hours. Not much going on. Snagged a bunch of Carp. I did manage 3 big Jumbo Perch I missed the 4th Perch which was the biggest over 13inches. It's crazy I've been going to Waterford for years I have never caught Perch that big. I guess you never know what's coming from Tichigan. No Walleyes today but still nice to be on River. Wink

Thanks for the info gentlemen. I always thought the no muskie reg on the Fox was a little odd, considering I CPR everything except maybe a few perch a year. I mean unless you are using a gigantic lure designed for only muskies how can the DNR tell what you are fishing for? I mean most of my northern pike lures catch muskie as well. And those good old regs say you cannot even catch and release out of season. Thanks again.

You can fish year round on the fox and prob everywhere else BUT only certain species for different times of the year. From the Waterford dam and down, it's open to all gamefish EXCEPT muskies year round. I'd recommend confirming these items yourself with the regs (look under RACINE COUNTY) as I'm sure if you get busted by the warden they won't take "but someone said it was open" as an excuse...

xX_TheArtfulDodger_Xx Yes I have fished in Silver Lake on Fox River. I caught a couple Small Smallmouth and that was it. It seemed like a decent place to fish nice little park. 1 thing I do remember about fishing the Fox River on Silver lake is the current it was pretty strong. Water levels are a little high so Im sure the current is moving pretty good. But all in all it was a pretty good place to fish.

Has anyone fished in Fox River Park in Silver Lake? Not sure if it is worth my time to fish the river that far south but I just want to get my lines wet. Hard to wait until May 7th for game fish and I know you can fish the Fox River south of Waterford year round. Thanks.

Fishingboy maybe you should call the dnr or email them maybe like you said someone is killing them or maybe they have some kind of virus or sickness seems kind of weird. Please let me know the results if you do contact them.

Forgot to mention as well. Last Wednesday there was a dead 20ish inch northern dead on shore railroad track side and today there was another dead northern about the same size on the island which had to have been killed yesterday because it still had full color. I'm not sure why anyone would be purposely killing these fish but it was purposely done because they were both on shore past where the water levels were at.
