Fall brings with it something for everyone in the field from the angler to the hunter.  Just a few recent sessions of shooting the bull tell me that autumn is for the youngest of outdoorsman just learning the games to those of us more seasoned with our eyes focused dead ahead on for example, the whitetail rut.

Lake Winnebago water clarity update

Our crew was out checking water clarity on Lake Winnebago yesterday and as anticipated clarity has changed since our last readings on January 30.  The average readings have dropped about a foot over the last week and a half (average 9.4' yesterday compared to 10.3' on January 30), but there appears to be more consistency within the readings.  For the most part better clarity is present along the east and north shores of Lake Winnebago, while poorer clarity is present off Oshkosh and to the south.  It's likely that the runoff coming into the lake at the mouth of the Fox River is clouding the water off Oshkosh, where runoff is having less impact to the east and further north. 


We weren't able to get up on the Upriver Lakes yesterday, but I've heard credible reports that clarity hasn't changed much over the last week and a half, remaining at 4-5' of visibility on average.   

Below is a map showing the locations and clarity for Lake Winnebago from yesterday's survey.
