MidwestOutcasts, I have not fished Stoddard for a couple years now. Your best bet is to stop in at Waters Edge and see what they have to share with you or read their reports. Have a safe trip and best of luck.

Ice Depth: 3" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 26° - 30° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Finally we have ice that I feel safe enough to walk on. Sunday 1/3/16 was the first walk on the ice this season. I found a solid 2-3inches of ice fishing a back water area in the La Crosse area. The bite was tough but a fish fry was brought topside between 7:30AM till 11:00AM. My producer of the day was a small Gold Tungsten Jig tipped with B-Y Baits Orange MudBug. Fishing in 14fow near a drop off found the takers. The crappies that were hungry on this day were running small for me but a few gills between 8-9.5inches and a few perch 10-11 inches took my offering 2ft off the bottom. Be safe and good luck fishing people.

Hit the river yesterday afternoon targeting pan fish. It took me a few hours to catch 25 mixed gills and perch all on worms and crawlers. They bit far better when it was cloudy than later when it cleared off. The perch were all eater size while I had some dandy gills 9"+. Look for the weed lines in at least 4' of water. I can't express how fortunate I feel to have the resources we have here in the Coulee region. I can never get enough. Tight lines.

Fished the last 4 days on pool 8 mainly south of La Crosse. Targeted SMB on the wing dams and other likely spots and did pretty well with the biggest being 18 1/2" and many in the 10-14" category. We also caught a number of short eyes and sauger. Fishing did seem to slow a bit yesterday after the front that came in Saturday night. I caught some smaller SMB early then went on a perch/bluegill hunt. I finally found some fish around the Stoddard islands and kept some for a fry. Most were the 9-10" variety. Was a beautiful time on the river. Lots of law enforcement, was checked by WI DNR as we returned to the landing Saturday night. Coast guard was busy checking vessels yesterday when I came in. I'm OK getting checked as long as I don't get checked 3 times in a day as has happened to me. I tend to get a little grouchy by then.

Tight lines and be safe out there.

There's not really a whole lot for campgrounds on the river. The only things that come to mind are Goose Island which is just south of town, and Blackhawk Park which is about 45 minutes south of town. They are both in backwater areas and do offer some shore fishing but I'm not sure which one would be better, probably less competition at Blackhawk. If you have a boat you can camp out on any sandbar you want for free.

Still catching lots of Walleye and Sauger. Was out yesterday with the kids and boated at least two dozen trolling. One one of them was legal. Since mid April have caught at least 200 trolling with about 20 legals. Seems to be a lot more northern action this year too.

The rising water has not tampered with the blue gill bite in the least. If anything, it has made the bite better. Small jigs tipped with a chunk of worm has been working fine but if you don’t like baiting up every time you catch a fish, B-Y Baits plastic shrimp has been putting the smack down on the Gills as well. The Gills we found on this day were pushed out of the current and into the trees in 3fow. We covered a lot of ground at first looking for a bite but once we found them, they were stacked on top of each other. Hanging the offerings 2ft under a bobber helped keep the jig grass free and out of the snagging debris lying on the bottom. My rig was an Orange/Yellow color combination jig tipped with Pink or White Shrimp. Good luck fishing people.

Griz,

Thanks for your military service! Send me a PM and I will take you out in my boat and at the same time give you some suggestions for shore fishing.
