    Details

    January / February

    Ice fishing can be very good in the Fremont area. Fish the bayous for bluegill and crappie. Give Lake Poygan a try for walleye. Partridge Lake is known for northern pike. Check with the local shops for up to date info.

    March

    Near the end of the month the river ice will let it’s grip go and the walleye run will start. It will last through April. The run will give you a good opportunity to catch your limit of walleye daily.

    April

    The walleye run will be in full swing and lasts until the end of the month. At the same time, the white bass will start moving into the river as the end of the month nears and water temps start to near 50 degrees.

    May

    This is your best month to catch big numbers of white bass. It’s great opportunity to bring the family and enjoy the fishing. There are many other options to fish for as well. Check the shallow water in the back of the bays for largemouth bass and northern pike. Bluegills and crappie will be in the sloughs along the emerging weed lines and shallow sand area looking to spawn, and catfish will start to bite near the end of the month in the holes.

    June

    This is a great month for the largemouth bass. The warmer water will turn on the catfish in the deep holes. The walleye fishing is excellent drifting the wolf right in Fremont as well as trolling Lake Poygan.

    July / August

    Walleye can be caught drifting the river. Catfish are still in the holes. Fish the downed trees in the river for crappie and bluegill.

    September

    The fall white bass run starts in September. Walleye activity in the river will increase.

    October / November

    The fall white bass run is still available but will dwindle as the water cools. However, the walleye bite increases with the colder water. The smallmouth bass will move back into the river and this will be a great opportunity to fish for them. Crappie can be found in the tree tops and sloughs. Very good fishing months that most never take advantage of.

    December

    The river as well as Partridge Lake will start to freeze over. Most years it can be hit or miss on most species. Everything is in transition.
