Middle of estabrook park. Take the path right to them. Its the biggest parking lot in the park. Ive caught bass above and below the falls all the way to capitol. Wacky worms, mepps, spinnerbaits, jigs, and my favorite the flyrod with brown or black wooly buggers. Dont be suprised if you pick up a pike or walleye, or even panfish...

Tried yesterday afternoon at Estabrook for some bass. Got skunked. I've never been up there and didn't know much about that stretch of the river... was having trouble finding anything deeper then a foot and a half.


Saw quit a few videos on YT of people fishing Estabrook Falls... tried finding where the river falls but failed... can anyone point me to the right area! Thanks!

I have been fishing the Milwaukee River for a few years now and have had success with smallmouth bass. Plastics, like tube baits and wacky worms usually work for me. Good luck exploring the Milwaukee River!

Fished this river for the first time, I had no luck. I did mark fish on my portable fish finder though, just could hook on to anything. I will be trying this river again with live bait most likely next weekend.

The whole river is fish able because it's shallow enough to go though most of it. If you are pointing towards water that could hold fish such as smallmouth, trout, catfish, suckers, pike, or carp. You can always try local parks that sit right next to the river. Estabrook, Kletch, North Avenue dam(on north avenue st.). There are many spots where many fish would lay in, but choosing the correct presentation is up to you. Otherwise I would suggest to just wade and walk the entire river. cover more ground and find the holes that alot of fish lay in. Hope this helped.

Does anyone know if it would be a decent spot to try bowfishing near the dam?

Repair the damn. It used to be a great place to fish when the gates where closed.
