Fishing has been good when the weather cooperates
Fishing has been good when the weather cooperates. Anglers are reporting good catches by the coulee bridges and the Johnson road. Along old Hyw 281 south of Minnewaukan. Also along Hyw 281 north of Minnewaukan. You can only access 281 north from Minnewaukan. The gate is closed at Hyw 19. Then from Hyw 19 north the hyw 281 is also open. The boat ramp in the city of Minnewaukan is closed. But the ramp 1 mile south of Minnewaukan on old 281 is open and high and dry. Anglers fishing from the boat are reporting catches out of pelican lake and the shorelines of wwest bay. They are casting Shorelines with #5 Shad Raps, Count down Rapala’s, and Wee Craws. Some anglers are slip bobber fishing in the trees with leeches. Keep your lines tight.
