Castle Rock Dam, Wisconsin

Castle Rock Dam is not really a secret fishing spot but from time to time on the right day you can see 4 – ½ sturgeon cruising along the dam walls plus pike musky and even carp.  All the photos below were take right at the Castle Rock Dam on the Adams County, Central WI. side back in May!

 

Dam Photos & Pictures

Stop in an talk to Dan for Dan’s Dam Bait Shop located right next to the parking lot.  This area is kind of unique because you have the south end of Castle Rock Lake above the dam the Wisconsin River open all the way to Wisconsin Dells below the dam, a sandy beach with boat launch and a trout stream that meets the river just a couple hundred feet south of the dam WITH it’s own little dam.  Plus you can see a wide variety of bird like sea gulls, wild ducks & geese skimming the water all around this area.
