There is one bright spot in a state of ugly fishing conditions this weekend unless you are suffering from enochlophobia—the fear of crowds.

Tailwaters of the Fox River Dam at De Pere in the Spring epitomize the terms “combat fishing” and “freaking zoo”. This is especially true during daylight hours during any April weekend. But angling pressure is bearable once the sun goes down during the week.

Tonight might offer the best opportunity of the entire week to hook up with a couple of quality walleyes for those with a screaming drive to fish and just a treatable case of enochlophobia. Sunday afternoon and evening are usually the best time for “locals” to hit the water at any popular Wisconsin fishing venue because the tourists have all gone home.

Get to Voyageur Park two hours before sundown this afternoon and you might only have to wait an hour to launch the boat.
