Richland County Fishing Report

The cold weather has subsided for a while and ice fishing is getting into full swing.  Reports are that there is about 4 to 8 inches of ice on most of the Wisconsin backwaters.  The pan fish have been biting with early morning or late afternoon being the prime time.  The fish have been at all depths, so use two rods rigged for a foot below the ice and the other about 6 inches off the bottom.  Another good method to use is start your jig at the bottom and slowly work it up to about a foot below the ice.  Waxworms have been working the best fished on a white or gold ice fishing jigs.  Northern pike are biting slow and put your tip ups away from the fishermen.  Try to locate them on points or along weed lines.  I usually like to put my minnow about two feet below the ice.

For all your outdoor needs stop in at River Bottom Outdoors located in Avoca at 204 Front St.  They will have the bait and minnows you will need.  I am sure they can give you some good locations to go for your next ice fishing trip.
