5 posts in this topic

Getting ready to get back on the Mighty Miss this weekend. Has anyone had any success from the confluence to the dam? Any of the community spots been producing?

If I have any luck, I'll post on Monday.

Good Luck fishing guys!

hey fleeced

I got on pool 2 twice last week for the first time this year and did ok. I haven't made it up to the dam yet, we fished between the confluence and hidden falls. We tried the confluence the first day with no results although it was still a few hours before dark.

The first day we boated 12-15 walleyes between eight and seventeen inches and the second day we boated about 6, all fish were caught in slack water just off the main current in 8 to 14 fow.

good luck, i might make it down there tomorrow weather permitting.

I have always done better in the back waters early in the spring. More so after it gets dark them to be in there feeding better. During the day the lock area does well, but you need to fish very slow. Crawling the jig on the bottom or slip float systems have done well.

Thanks for the info guys. I took a bit of a hiatus with the cold weather, but was back on P2 today. Fished from Watergate to the dam with some limited success with some smaller males. A beautiful day to be on the river. Temps were just under 42 degrees and the water level is down from last week.

I hope my boss doesn't read this site. shocked.gif

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
