Clements Fishing Barge Lock and Dam #8 On The Mississippi

 The Clements Fishing Barge has been in operation since the fall of 1936. We are located just below Lock and Dam #8 on the Mississippi River. We have the largest fishing float on the river and at one of the most ideal locations.


A perfect change of species for the trout angler that wants to fish for something else.

No boat required.


Area Streams Will Be A Madhouse This Weekend

Lee Wulff Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be in Avalanche this weekend.
The Gary Borger Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be in Fennimore this weekend.

 The Elliot Donnelley Chapter of TU will be in Westby this weekend for their annual spring meeting too.

It would be a good idea to stay home this weekend or maybe you like waiting in line to fish?

Courier Press Covers My Book's Upcoming Release

 Courier Press

Brigadoon Creek is slated for release before Apple Festival in September .

Over 50 browns to hand last saturday afternoon

 Zach Paul of Franklin and Curt Riedl of Madison fished on one of my local streams in Richland County.  They were fishing with spinners in a waterway I gave them a tip to fish.
Between the two anglers they caught over 50 browns on Saturday afternoon.  Zach caught big fish of the day.
 Zach's 21 incher that got sick of having photos taken of him and jumped out of his hand

Curt told me he had three ferocious hits that had to be rock jawed monsters because there were no hook-ups.

Every Time

I have been biting at the bit to get out so badly lately that every time I feel the knee is better I wander a little and re-aggravate it.
I have done that 3 times now.  Wife and I talked last night and I will be babying it long past the time I think I need to so full knee replacement is not needed.
