Ron booked a guide trip for 3 guys for a full day guide trip with me on petenwell.We hit the water at 7am. Water temp was only 44 in the am and when we left around 3 pm water temp was 52. Water temp has really dropped this week. Last weekend the water temp was in the lower 60s.Sounds like nice weather is on its way for the week. This should get the water temps back up. Yesterday the wind was blowing very hard from the north east all day. For a few hours in the morning we had over cast skies.As soon as the sun popped out the fishing picked up. We fished the north end of the lake most of the morning. Had to really jump around to find active fish.In the afternoon we ran up river for a few hours.Most of our fish we caught yesterday came on 1/8 oz jigs tipped with fat heads. Did catch a couple on ring worm. Ended the day with 2 cats,30 plus short eyes and 2 keepers the guys took home for dinner. Anyone looking to book a guide trip??I have a few opening.

Hello All,

Just a general question please. I have not fished Petenwell and would like to give it a try sometime here in the Spring/Early Summer targeting anything. I am from the Milwaukee/Racine area and only will have a chance to fish a few times during the season. Anyone that has any suggestions as to where to start or how to approach certain areas, please feel free to send me a PM. Thanks in advance.

Are the white bass up around the dam yet?-maybe a little early for that. How about catfish in the channels on the East side?

Two hour drive. Cool

As of 3/25 at 6:30 am both lakes are at 18" below normal summer levels. Some wet heavy snow moved through the area and north last night so we should get a little run-off from this event.

Lots of guys calling and asking about the river,water levels and how much ice is still left on the main lake. Nekoosa guys have been launching and heading down river towards the mouth of the lake.Few guys are catching fish at yellow banks and at chesters creek all the way up to plank hill.Water levels are still low. Take caution in some areas. There is the large rock pile between both the nekoosa launches. and farther down towards the main lake there will be alot of wood areas. The river is open from the nakoosa dam all the way out on the main lake to the supper club .From there south the lake is still locked up with ice. ICE IS NO LONGER SAFE. Water has come up some this last week. Dusty from down below the petenwell dam said finally they have some water going threw the petenwell dam today. In nekoosa they have had 1 gate open for a few day. Sounds like warm weather is on its way starting this weekend. This should get the water temps up more.With a little more current flow this should move more fish up river...... Be safe guys,Good luck Big Smile Big Smile
