Bo, Marinette County has a launch at County X park just east of Hwy 180 or north of there is a ramp off the County J bridge just east of Hwy 180. You'll find bass and pike but walleye will be scarce

Water Temp: 66° - 70° F
I fished late Saturday evening from 7 to 10. Casted crank baits and did real well. I had five nice eyes between 16" and 21". No bass or northerns, I was surprised the water was already 70 degrees and fish were in the river spots I usually fish later in the summer.

Yopergirl. check out Stevenson's Island off the Interstate bridge right in Marinette, nice kid friendly park with easy shore fishing, parking and restrooms.

I am newer to the area and have a five year old son that I love taking fishing! We are looking for nice areas that are "kid friendly" around the Marinette area onwards toward Pembine. Any tips and locations are greatly appreciated!

Thanks guys, appreciate any info! Also, if anyone knows much about catching musky out there, would appreciate a PM.. Would like to chase musky when visiting him up there, but really don't know where to start in that area.

Limit is 5 at 15 inches now you can launch from either side of the river and yes that still works but current is very high right now may want to fish farther down river

Buddy bought some land nearby and told him I would bring the boat up and take him fishing this weekend.. I have not fishing the Menominee in over a decade.. Used to drift past the shipbuilding place and bounce jigs with mister twister tails with live bait.. Does that still work or does anyone have any other tips? colors? techniques? other spots to try? Are the walleye still biting there? Also, we have Wisconsin fishing licenses, if we launch from the WI side, is that all we need? AND is it 1 fish any size the limit? Just want to make sure we are legal. Thank you.

Jlr - google USGS Menominee River at Macallister. They have census data at Niagara and Koss Bridge also but the Macallisyer location is closest to the mouth that records temp. Gives you all of the turbidity, flow, temperature etc and you can do this for most rivers so you do not have to ask. 55F yesterday and 53F today. You can view a trends from a selected date range as well otherwise it generally shows the last 5 days.

Millertime - yes. Used to do it there all the time. Fish from the Michigan side lighthouse pier and go all the way out to the end. Cast along the mudline and south towards the end of the Government Pier on the other side if the river. Rip heavy Hopkins spoons, blades like Zips/Sonars and jigs with swim baits 3-4" back in along the bottom. These baits should all be 3/4 to 1 oz. Once starts getting dark fish will suspend and you cast #9-11 floating raps and husky jerks with inline sinker of 3/8 -5/8 18" ahead of it depending on current and where the fish are suspending. Always did great there this time of year with those methods.

John T. I have not been up there yet this year with the boat. But I believe you will find that little bay closed. That is where they are running the dredging equipment. Still eyes being caught around the river mouth. Suckers are in thick! Budy of mine even got two nice browns on Saturday. Road to the boat launch on the Michigan side is now open, but as of today the DNR has yet to put the dock in. Good luck.
