Prairie du Chien Area
Bluegill, perch, and crappie action was spotty, due in part to
the changing weather patterns. Cold Spring was very spotty, with a
few days producing some decent bluegills and a few crappies.
Shoreline fishing was poor. Anglers are still crossing the Ambro
Slough to fish Mud Slough and Tilmont Lake. Some anglers have
ventured up to Fish Lake and the Lower Doubles where bluegill
fishing was spotty. Action farther up at Little Missouri and Big
Missouri and the Upper Doubles also has been spotty. Ice conditions
on the Ambro Slough upstream from the federal landing are a bit
poor because of the feeder stream that enters the slough. Some
anglers ventured out to McGregor Lake, but fishing there was slow.
The lower bottoms outside of Prairie du Chien have not seen much
fishing activity due to access problems. Some anglers have been
fishing through the ice below the Lynxville dam for walleyes and
