There are some in the harbor still due to the still cooler water. Then they scatter in the rocks around the piers, same way as below, and don't be surprised if you catch a coho, brown, giant sheepshead or catfish. Good luck!

Roggie is right...pretty piss poor along Wisconsin shores. I haven't heard or personally seen a fish landed going on 2-3 weeks now. I rather go after Atlantic's and skamz elsewhere.

Nothing to share H-D. I've been hitting the mouth area regularly in the mornings with nothing over the past 3 weeks. Must be something with the weather has them elsewhere in the lake. I would blame myself but speaking with some friends (who are good and know the area waters like the back of their hands)they are getting zilch too. Casting plugs and spoons, bait fishing with alewives and shrimp, nothing! It's really bad when seeing someone hooking into an occasional brown is the exception. Crying

Any advice on fishing this time of year here or better in the harbors? I keep bringing my 12 year old son to the harbor but am 0-10 tries. Thanks pm if possible.

I don't know that there is a fall catfish run, but I would think that if they did, as with any other fall run fish, the fall would be the best time to catch them. You could check back through the fall reports of past years to probably find your answer there. There's at least 14 years worth of info. GL

I've read info about 'above the dam' in past reports. We got some in the harbor last nite before the fog came in and the wind changed and the cold wind came in. Nothing bigger than 4#s-ish. Lots o' suckers. Usual baits. GL.

Is the steelhead fishing worth a 2 hour drive?

Fished yesterday 6 to 1030, went 5 for 8 on steelhead with a dozen or so suckers. Seen no fish below the weir all fish caught in quarry lake area on egg fly. The water is getting to warm looks like run is about done not a great season compared to the past. Don't think i will hit the river again this year. time to get ready for spring coho off the wall.

The steel is in and violent! Went 1-4 Saturday on a mepps and vibrax spinner. Fished only one stretch of river and saw about 8 fish jumping and moving about. Spawn didn't produce. Great day to be out!
