EARLY SPRING?

The recent warm weather has dramatically reduced the snow cover.  Perhaps we will be fortunate and have an early spring with no serious flooding.  That would sure be nice!

FLOOD WATERS RECEDING

The river level at L&D 10 in Guttenberg has dropped to 12.1 ft. and expected to slowly drop to 11.0 ft over the next week.  Hopefully we'll get some warm weather and the river will continue to drop over the next 2-3 weeks.  Fishing should continue to improve now as we head into April.  It's time to go Fishing!!!.......give me a call to book your charter.

FISHING SHOULD NOW IMPROVE.

The gates have been up and down the last 2-3 weeks. They are down now and the river is somewhat low to normal. The water temperature has climbed to 66 degrees which should help fishing.  Give me a call and let's explore the Mississippi.


9/21/16

RIVER ON THE RISE AGAIN!

Recent rains are pushing the river up.  Now expected to reach 2 ft below flood stage.  Probably be a couple weeks until fishing gets back to normal.....Uggh!
