Understanding water levels in an important factor for planning your Wilson River Fishing Trip. If water levels are high and the color is a murky green to brackish, use more colorful tackle and run your set up at deeper depths. If the water is low and clear, then try to stay back off the holes and eddies cast a little further as not to spook the fish and use more natural colored tackle.
The Ideal Wilson River Water Levels for both boat and bank fishing, range from 4.8 ft. to 5.4 ft. If you’re fishing from a drift boat you have a little more flexibility and can successfully Fish The Wilson with water levels from 3.5 ft. to 6 ft. For bank fishing and plunking, 6.5 ft. and up are good as well. Current water levels are provided in the USGS graphs below.
