Castle Rock Dam Bait Shop LLC is a family owned and operated full services bait and tackle shop located on the Wisconsin River at the foot of the Castle Rock Dam. The shop is a DNR License Agent and able to provide customers will all DNR Licenses.
We also have a full line of beverages and snacks. (No alcoholic beverages)
We carry a full line of fishing bait and tackle. Minnows, suckers, night crawlers, leeches and pan fish worms will be available in season.
The site has 3 boat launches with one being a canoe and tube launch with the other two directly on the Wisconsin River. The launches on the river are improved with blacktop approaches, cement pads in the water and a pier for ease of launching.
We charge a $3.00 launch fee. Starting on 3/1/2014 an annual launch fee pass will be available for $20.00. This area of the Wisconsin River is known for its early spring walleye run with fishing beginning in mid-January weather permitting.
Once the water warms up the waters are teeming with bluegills, crappies, white bass, small and largemouth bass, northern pike, musky, river sturgeon and numerous species of rough fish.
The area is also a favorite of those who bow fish for carp and rough fish in the slower backwater areas. The area is also home to many bald and golden eagles which can be seen fishing from the bait shop all winter long. Many different species of waterfowl can also be viewed all year long.
