Fall Conditions?

How is this dry weather going to affect the pheasant and the Duck populations?

Any ideas?

Here in the far southwest corner the pheasant hunting is going to be every bit as good as it was last year. I'll be shocked if the roadside counts don't show a lot of birds here. I'm seeing all kinds of birds with some very nice size broods included. We'll see. The ducks are different story. Don't really know what's out there but do know the ponds are getting dryer every day. Time will tell.

123FISH IS RIGHT ON. WE HAVE NOT HAD A 1" OF RAIN IN 6WKS. THE PHEASANT HUNTING WILL BE GOOD. DUCKING COULD BE TOUGH. LET'S HOPE FOR SOME AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER RAINS. IF WE DON'T GET ANY RAIN SOON I'M NOT SURE IF THE RIVERS WILL BE RUNNING.

As long as there is dew on the grass in the morning, the pheasants will be okay.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
