The regs may be a bit confusing, for they consume a few pages. And yes, to know the boundaries of when and where you can and cannot fish after dark varies from stream to stream - BUT - the regs do answer both those questions as well.

There is no fishing permitted from a half hour after sunset until a half hour before sunrise. If you want to be precise in those hours, look up the deer hunting hours, they are the same.

As to where on those waterways does that mean I can fish in those non-permitted hours? Nowhere! Can one fish on the pier? If where you want to fish on the pier is not part of the stream/river. How does one know? Do I need to look for some sign or ask the locals?

No! Where doe the stream end and the lake begin? It is that simple.

How can you tell? Look for where the shoreline meets Lake Michigan on one side of the river, then find where the shoreline meets Lake Michigan on the other side of the river, draw a line from one side to the other, you need to be one the lake side of that invisible line to fish at night.

Oh, and another tip for Salmon fishermen. A legally caught fish must be hooked IN the mouth, not in the head, not in the eye, not NEAR the mouth, but IN the mouth. You can be ticketed if a fish is kept which was hooked other than In the mouth.

Now, a question I have, have they been catching any on the pier?

I was born in Algoma, but now live in Shawano area, so I need to rely on these reports to know if they are staging outside the pier heads or not.

Peace of The Lord be with you.

MKK, Bassking and others --- the regs are on pages 63-67 of the 2014-15 WI Fishing rules--- here is a quick summary:

10 inch size limit. 5 fish per day. Of the 5, only 2 can be lake trout (and you can only keep lakers from March 1 through Oct 31)

If you are fishing the rivers, night fishing is prohibited from from one-half hour after sunset to one-half hour before sunrise, starting September 15 and running through the first Saturday in May. For the Kewaunee pier, there is a yellow sign next to the water behind the police station that indicates the boundary for night fishing.

Good luck.

Not being from Wisconsin Originally and this being the first year that I fished on the Pier, I would like to add to some of the comments here. I downloaded every rule book I could find through the DNR and read for almost a half hour before I uneasily felt that I knew the rules. After asking some friends to verify the rules I now feel better. The rule book is vague at best. Probably one of the most vague hunting or fishing manuals I have ever read. So I feel when people are asking questions like what they have been doing, it might just be to verify what has been read. That and there may be rules in Local areas that might be missed.

FISHING REPORT

Late report been busy... Went Saturday. Water was very dirty. New guy with me lost 1. Seen 3 others landed. Fished 7-1230. Fish we had on was turned color. Few fish at footbridge and loads of them at the hatchery. I think what happened is that run of fish was in the harbor for a little bit which is why guys we're getting them. Rain we had pushed them upriver. They are black at hatchery. More fish to come that was just the first wave. Hit or miss on the spurts of fish until they come full force. Also I was fishing in a boat . Pier didn't look that packed tho

See a few guys questioning fish movement on here. I live in Sturgeon Bay. I've not caught any in the harbor this week. We troll through harbor after fishing out in the lake. I also took a ride to Algoma and visited the forestville dam area. Did not see any moving here either. Saw guys fishing. No catches. those guys said hit and miss. I personally do not fish for them once they start spawing, but I can tell you they are not on a hot bite yet in the harbors or rivers around here yet. Maybe south of us they are. Dont get me wrong they are definately staging, but I just have not heard or seen any activity. Be kind to nature please, stomping on spawn beds, snagging, or neglecting the spawners has severe effects on future generations of fish. Yes, we plant them but we should not rely on this. Just my 2 cents.
