On Pool 10 Bussey Lake reports slow fishing except right before dark with a few crappies being caught.The spillway above Harper’s Ferry has had slow to good fishing with a few crappies being caught there also.Due to the ice cover there has been no open water fishing for walleye at lock and dam 10 in Guttenberg.

Mississippi River Pools 16 to 20: Tailwater stage in Pool 16 has fallen close to one-foot over the weekend to 5.67 feet. As of this past weekend the Marquette St. boat ramp was still accessible. There are reports of anglers catching limits of walleyes and saugers below Lock and Dam 15, using jig/minnow combinations and night crawlers. Some crappies and bluegills are being caught through the ice at Credit Island. With the recent warm weather and predicted rain this week use caution when venturing out on the ice. 

In Pool 17, tailwater stage is at 4.88 feet and is forecasted to slowly fall over the week.Some walleyes and saugers are being caught in the tailwaters below the Lock and Dam 16 using jig and minnow combinations and night crawlers.

Tailwater stage in Pool 18 is 7.22 feet. There were reports of anglers catching walleyes and saugers below Lock and Dam 17 over the weekend.  There may be limited access at the Toolesboro landing due to ice chunks.   

In Pool 19, tailwater stage is 4.20 feet and is forecasted to fall slowly over the next week. Walleyes and saugers are being caught below Lock and Dam 18 on jig and minnow combinations. In Pool 20, tailwater stage is 4.6 feet but water levels fluctuate due to dam releases. No fishing report.
