Hook House

August 10, 2020:
Over at the Hook House Bait and Tackle Dennis said the store weathered the storm and a short power outage with no major damage. The same can't be said for the local fishing after the storm and into the weekend. Streams were running high and roiled and most still waters were off color and high. The panfish and catfish action being seen in the College Pond is typical of most other waters in the area. One fishery that came out on the upside is the pickerel fishing in Horicon Lake and the bogs and ponds off Route 70 who's waters benefited from higher water and better oxygen levels.

In addition he said Trilco has been seeing some bass, pickerel and perch, while Lake Riviera is also producing some bass in the backwater areas. Pickerel fishing in local cedar waters, while slower that a few weeks back, is still giving up some chainsides on minnows.
