We should be fishing the Wisconsin River for spring walleyes by now, but this unbelievable winter is going to push fishing back a few weeks unless we get some real warm weather. I will be writing some spring walleye stories soon, but I thought that I would give you an early spring crappie story to get you in the open water mood. I have caught crappies early in the spring many years when temper-atures are still in the 40s in quiet and mud bottom back bays off main lakes. But, this year may be a little different to say the least! Here is an early spring article to get you thinking about what we have ahead of us in spring fishing! Good fishing cannot t be too far away, I hope!

Southern Wisconsin is blessed with having numerous lakes of all sizes with good popula-tions of crappies and I am writing and talking about slab-size crappies, not the 8 inch ones that you can see through. Some of the better locations and waters are the Madison Chain of Lakes (Lake Mendota, Lake Monona, Lake Kegonsa, and Lake Waubesa) and a little farther north is Lake Wisconsin which has some of the best size crappies in the southern part of the state. Lake Wisconsin was formed when dams were constructed on the Wisconsin River for hydro-electric power at Wisconsin Dells and Prairie du Sac. The total acreage for Lake Wisconsin is almost 5,000 acres which has a constant flow and the lake’s water supply is replenished every 4 days and big crappies.
