The water dropped fast here on the lake.  We are maybe 6 inches above normal today, so there are no more high water issues on this side of the lake.  The river is still high however so exercise caution when going out on the main channel.  The bluegills are primed and ready to spawn so the next week or so should be excellent fishing.  I am already seeing a lot come in with the average being 8-8 1/2 inches.  There are plenty around the 9′ mark but the 10s are tough to come by.  The crappies have slowed way down and I suspect most have moved out to the sloughs off of the main channel, but a few guys are still able to dredge up some nice ones.  Pike continue to harass panfishermen so if you are looking for some northern they are not hard to find.

Thanks,

The high water has hit us at the worst time.  The fish initially shut down when the water came up, but now that the water has settled a bit they are turning back on.  I have gotten several reports of good bluegill fishing in shallow water.  The water should start dropping today but bring your rubber boots if you want to launch at Mosey’s Landing.  Hopefully by next week we will start seeing more normal levels.

Thanks,

The recent warm weather has changed the fishing dramatically on the lake.  Although the crappies are still around the bite has slowed dramatically.  There are still guys who have been able to adapt to the changing conditions and are still able to catch them.  As the crappies have been slowing the bluegills have been picking up.  I have seen several limits from different guys of large bluegills in shallow water.  The question is what will happen with the cooler temperatures.  It most likely will push the bluegills deeper, and hopefully improve the crappie bite.  If you put in the time and adapt to the changing weather there is the opportunity to catch some nice fish on Lake Onalaska.

Thanks,

Now that we have had a few days of nice weather the Crappies seem to be picking up.  Guys are catching them suspended in deep water, and I have also gotten several reports of crappies in brush.  With the good weather continuing this week should be great.  The bass have started spawning with reports of both spawned out females as well as females with eggs still in them.  The perch are around but hard to target, and the bluegills are still sleeping!

Thanks,

Chad
