As reported by Jesse of Green Water Walleyes, went out all day Saturday for a great trip. Fun group to fish with, my group as well as the others. The pictures speak for themselves. Learned some tricks. Caught some awesome crappies, nice white bass and a couple of short walleyes. Thanks Jesse. Looking forward to a late May or June trip.

Noodlerod, went off Longview this morning and the launch is in great condition. A couple of weeks ago I went way east along the north side of the heave to get to the south side in my jeep. Have to go half way across the lake and keep an eye out to be safe. Good luck.

fmfd57. There is a boat landing at Monroe town park. I am afraid to give directions because after a couple dozen times going there, I miss it and have to look for it myself. Need to find out how the access to the lake is there now. There's been a big heave there all winter. Difficult with a four wheel drive, impossible with out it. Atv's don't have a problem. Any body know how longview is for driving on? I wanna go south of the heave. There was a way around the heave the last time I was up.

Looking forward to it! I'm fishing all of the AIM events this year. I'm hoping Petenwell turns out as good as I think it will!

Fished the channel edge off Monroe today. Slow. Managed 4 whitebass and 1 short walleye. I was the only guy out there until early afternoon when one other guy set up about a quarter mile south of me. There weren't more than a half dozen people anywhere within my vantage point. Its been pretty slow for me all year. Always managed to catch a few crappies and a few whitebass but never really had a "super" day. Also never caught a walleye over 20", only a handful between 15"-20", although quite a few shorts. Don't get me wrong though, I just love to fish and love this lake! That's why I fish it 2-3 times a week. I'll be back next winter with a vengeance. This was my last time out, as Thursday I'm heading to Arizona to hone my golf game, geocache in the backcountry, and basically just soak up the sun! (I know I'm lucky!) Be back in late April to hopefully bump into some of you guys on the soft water. In the mean time fish hard and stay on top . Good luck. P.S. the landing off Monroe is probably in the best shape its been in a couple of weeks. Never even touched the skid plates going out or coming in. Travel anywhere isn't bad at all if you stay in the already made wheeltracks although I wouldn't venture out without 4-wheel drive.

Went out with Jesse on Friday as per his report below. Conditions were pretty rough, but the fishing was solid. This is our second trip with Green River Walleye and I will definitely be booking with Jesse again. I'm really trying to learn this body of water and Jesse has been a great help in showing me the ropes. He's a class act and knows this body of water better than anyone. Thanks again for a great outing!

Fished today from 8am till 5pm with 5 great guys who booked a full day guide trip with me.Wind was blowing very hard from the south all day. Lots of large drifts of snow. You need 4x4 with good tires.From west side of lake to about the middle is good travel. East side is very rough. Today we drove off at petenwell county park. Fishing was good today few crappies and lots of white bass. Crappies came threw suspended and would bite. Most of the fish are on the bottom. If you can get them to chase couple feet off the bottom they went in the bucket. Big Smile Big Smile

I get a kick out of the fact that a year ago all the guides were tooting their horns on their big catches for really nice guys. They either wised up and realized that they were only drawing people from all over the country to populate the ice, or cant catch anything. Maybe the fishing is so hot they cant take time to post. Now all you hear about is where to get on and off the ice.
