Default Oregon Dam

Planning to head out Tuesday. Are the smallies still on or have they slowed up? Have the walleyes stared in earnest yet? Any info would be appreciated. Will post results on Wednesday.

Fished 2-4:30pm today behind the middle island. Ended up with 1 nice silver walleye... aka. DRUM then 4 small walleyes, and one 2 lb rock that I dragged up off the bottom. At least I know my hooks are real sharp.

Caught 1 walleye on split shot and minnow and the rest came on a new heddon rattling zip lure I picked up. Nothing on a jig and minnow. go figure.

Water temp was 41.8 degrees.

Going to try again tomorrow.

Fished Christmas Eve for an hour or so. The water level was up about a foot. Enough to cover the island below the dam. Water temp was a balmy 39 degrees and some small walleyes were biting on jig and minnow combo.
Sure was nice to do some open water fishing on Christmas Eve.

You have two choices. TJ's Canoe Rental which is downstream of the dam about 1/4 mile or a new bait shop that just opened days ago called
Rock River Outfitters. They will fill you in on what bait to use and what's biting. The store's address & phone# are: 114 River Road, Oregon, IL (815)732-9999 This store is on the east side of the river near the dam.

Good luck!
