Water levels are dropping closer to average levels for this time of year but still remain a bit higher then normal. That should continue to mean good fishing for white bass, walleye, catfish, smallmouth bass and northern pike along with bluegill and crappie throughout the entire system. With water temperatures reaching 60 degrees the white bass should be starting to spawn and all of the other mentioned species should be becoming quite active. I’ve heard good reports of crappie from places around the lower lakes and Winneconne and my friends that target bluegills are starting to talk the talk. I’ve been hearing of some nice smallmouth being caught by those throwing small crank baits for walleye. Theory is that there are still plenty of walleye to come back. Trollers on Poygan have been finding a few walleye as have some anglers in the Winneconne area. Warmer water temperatures and falling river levels should improve this bite soon. Catfish are biting and a few nice northern pike have been reported caught, including this one, which I caught and released while fishing off my friends dock for white bass.
