So far it's only no wake in the river from the lake south. Jefferson county and the lake are still open but still rising.

The launch is located under the hwy 26 bridge. It can be accessed on a rural road south of the river. Get there early for a parking space!

I am only interested in channel cats. I have never fished for them on Kosh. I see some are getting them drifting in the river. I am only accustomed to bottom fishing them. Were you getting them on jigs and minnows? Where is the launch by Blackhawk. I'm not asking for hand holding. Just some general pointers in the right direction. Thanks in advance.

Was wondering if anyone has seen or heard of any winter kill or has seen any dead fish with the low water and thick ice this winter?

FISHING REPORT
4/14/14 9:14 AM CST
Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 46° - 50° F Water Temp: 46° - 50° F
Launched out by Blackhawk yesterday early morning about 6am. Did a couple of drifts by the mouth hoping to pick up one or two but no luck. Walleye seemed to have moved back into the lake. WB were in pretty heavy and the cats were biting everything. Went out into the lake to troll for awhile. Water temp was 48 to 52 degrees. Never trolled this lake before, so I stuck around the bays by the mouth with no success. Tried all different colors but nothing was hot. Water visibility was less than a foot. Any advice on where to focus my trolling efforts would be much appreciated!?! Thanks

Caught a 10" sauger on Flicker Shad as I was reeling in before it started to pour.Good days lie just ahead.PEACE AND GOOD FISHING GUYS. lARRY Big Smile Cool Big Smile P.S. What is up with the RRWL League and when do you start?

I like the lure choices you guys are talking about for Kosh..here is a couple more- when I troll lures-I ALWAYS have one line with a small Storm Thin Fin. Sometimes this lure rocks out there ! These are pretty cheap to buy- comparative to flicker shads. I have been trolling spinner crawler rigs off boards quite a bit the last couple years if the bite seems slow. You have to troll slower-.9-1.2. Santa got me a bunch of slow death spinner rigs to experiment with this year. I need run a drift sock off the front of my boat or two smaller ones off the sides to slow my boat down enough. I tend to catch less white bass with the harnesses but more goats. I can't wait until the lake opens up-but I guess it will be bumper boats and Black hawk for a couple more weeks. I got out of golf league this year-hopefully I can put some fish weight to back up my posts Anchor Walleye League this year...when is this expected to kick off ? Newville

Alumni,For big K I like golds, purples and the old fire tigers. #5 flickers are my favorite. I have some custom painted ones I get from Wilderness bait shop up on Petenwell. I also like the #4salmo hornets. The hot perch color has done good for me. a good tip from Nauga Monster. I also like #5 rapala shad raps like you had in your first pick although I don't use the shallow runners that much. I like to tick the bottom on Kosh. No brainier trolling the only time I have ever lost a lure was from nort break offs.Up on Pete I'll use hot n tots and walley divers. Typically I only troll shad style baits until fall then try stick baits. Fleet farm has some real cool flickers and Salmos on sale right now.

55to65deg can't wait. My problem is totaled my truck 2months ago. Company is in process of getting me new one. Problem is they are making them in April and won't be ready 6weeks or so. I have other options in meantime thanks to guys like Newville Narrows and my dad. I am 48 yrs old and don't like to use or borrow so well see what happens. I'll pull my 18' crestliner with my quad if I have to. PEACE.
