Fishing has been very good for the most part in the lower end of the system. Lake Poygan has been hot and cold based on wind and weather patters, but that’s typical for this time of year as conditions move the fish, not the fishermen. The bottom end of the river has also been producing some nice catches of walleye as they continue to filter back through the system. I expect this to continue as good numbers of walleye hang in the river to take advantage of the abundance in available food. In fact, there are still walleye being caught in the New London area, something I expect to continue all summer long. Smallmouth bass are active most days and panfish action is also good from New London through Lake Poygan to Winneconne.
YES IT’S TRUE! There have been a few nice Muskies caught, including a 52 1/2 inch fish brought in to Johnnies Little Shoppe of Bait in New London. Unfortunately, that fish was not able to be released but numerous other big fish have been caught, and released. Again, available food resources and a slight decline in the northern pike population may have played a part in making a prediction I made this spring at ICE BREAKER come true.
