It's the TV guys way of holding them for a pic. Imo, it damages the gills on some. Is it a fact? I don't know. Most fish I get never leave the water, so I guess I'll never know.

Fished the root this morning for a couple hours before work. Mostly just drifted beads and skein on the pin. Lots of fish moving today. Had one hooked up long enough for a headshake and that was it for me. Had the whole stretch of river to myself, never had to deal with a single snagger,which was nice. It's amazing what walking more than 10 feet from the car gets you, as far as lack of people goes...

Bassfishing49 you know what happens when you assume? I don't assume I know! I live just up the hill from Lincoln park a drive through there everyday by the license plates there are more from Illinois then Wisconsin so who else could it be? Don't get me wrong there are A lot of good from Illinois cause I fished with a few. But we all know where the trouble comes from. Just today a friend had called the DNR due to some trying to snag and net fish SMH.

Datbass, next time i would say skip lincoln park all together and do some walking up river. One thing to keep in mind is that even though you can see fish after fish in lincoln park, the fish there have probably already been hooked at least a couple times, and are much more spooked than fish in other parts of the river. Very rarely will you legally catch the kings you can see in the river, not to mention lincoln park is the snagger headquarters of SE wisconsin.

Datbass262 It doesn't surprise me that they would do that crap! If it was me I would of said something to him and if he pretended that he didn't hear me next cast would of followed up by hooking his waders! I just laugh at these fibs that come here right out of a Cabela's magazine and think there professional fishermen and then proceed to snag lol.

I think I know that guy. ..Fisherman's Etiquette goes a long way, but also stops with the letter E... Besides crowding, the other common thing is moving up/down river through a stretch someone is fishing...And as they barge through a hole they still have nerve to point out the fish they spooked out of there...LOOK, A FISH... N S Sherlock. .. Totally clueless... I would just love to know that every hole THEY fished for a year somebody barreled through there. ..Then I would be okay with it. ..Just so they would know what it feels like. ..But I don't think these people care at all. ..Maybe if They got a ticket for harassing a fisherman...

No. You were in the right. The Root is pretty well known for rude anglers who want to fish in your spot and want to snag a dozen fish to sell. Just move down or find a more pleasant place to fish...look at Oak Creek and Pike as alternatives.

Got up bright and early found my spot at lincon park. I was using spinning gear from shore, kinda new to fishing the river. A fly fisherman walked right in front in the middle of where I was casting and took over my spot. Was wondering if this is normal and do I have a right to be mad or does he have thetheght away because he is wading? Legit question not complaining just curious

Brook011 - That is something to be very proud of. Smile Did a walk around of the harbor and river mouth. Not much moving and saw no one getting bites. I'm guessing the browns are upstream spawning right now. Won't be long and they will be coming back down with their feed bags on.

On Saturday Oct 11, from 9 AM to 3 PM an Open House will be held at the Root River Steelhead Facility located at Lincoln Park in Racine, WI. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in partnership Salmon Unlimited and Trout Unlimited will host the event. DNR will be demonstrating the techniques employed at the facility for egg taking. Fly tying, knot tying, casting and a Lake Michigan fishing boat will be also be displayed. Salmon Unlimited members will be providing salmon cooking demonstrations and sharing their favorite salmon recipes. Food and refreshments will be served. This is open to the public and free to attend.

Lots of fish in the facility should make for an excellent opportunity for everyone to enjoy the fall salmon run. Hope to see everyone there.
