Nice looking fish Polish Guy! Went out today to linkin park, water was a little low for me but did go 3-6. Fish seemed to be mostly in shallow parts of the river. Get out soon, suckers are invading the root!

Had a great time on the river yesterday. River was in a great condition, still plenty of fish. I released my largest steelhead to date and now I'm just curious how big it was. Many thanks for the guy who helped net the fish(sorry about your net steely broke it). There was only a short window for me when they hit flies (maybe 30 minutes) and they were gone.

I'm glad you "railed on the chrome" chintastic, although I'm sure it was nothing compared to "back when you were a young lad"...

I got my spring fix in fellas. All that is left in the river is dropbacks and spawners. When I start seeing fish on redds, I let them do their thing and let the fly guys get a shot at them. The fishing from two weeks ago to now is like day and night. when you go from 10-15 fish hook ups down to 2-3 fish hook ups in a day, not worth the outing for me

chintastic per 4/11 report? WonderingText

REPORT:

Friday, railed on chrome for the better part of the morning up at the Bridge by the dam. Things started getting too busy for my liking, so i ended up moving downstream. Managed to get a few downstream, but nothing like up by the bridge. I mean literally i was hooking fish one after another.

Saturday, What was i thinking about going to the Root on the weekend? Too many dumb people walking through the middle of the holes, then expecting to catch fish, tickling spawning fish with flies, and boon dogging peoples' holes they are fishing. I ended my day short and downstream of nonsense.

Sunday, A lot better day. Caught a couple nice fish and watched spawning fish everywhere! Fish on gravel and runs in just about every corner of that river. It was hard getting fish to bite since many are in full spawn. All of the fish hooked were skippies and one spawned out hen.

All in all a great weekend of fishing, but for sure the run is 85% done. Water temp was 49 degrees...almost thought the thermo was broke.

Good luck!

You see that on any great lakes tributary with a wall. I live by Grant and I see it all the time. Just sounds like a case of "catching".

Luvtheoutdoors first you PM saying that's not you in slammers pic now your telling us that was you SMH..Here is your PM. "First off this guy was not fishing from the top of the wall. Second what would the dnr write the ticket for. I would like to know as I have been up there looking at the river and don't want to get a ticket for "looking at the river" Well if I'm not certain then you have a twin out their! I guess my friends are right when they tell me not too post on here since most fishermen are lazy and want free information! Steely_Z you can still PM me.

luv2hunt&fish, I did not PM you to bust your chops, but if you don't know what you are posting about then don't post comments. There is nothing about karma here. Your pic is not even of the same guy. I was the guy in "joeslammer2's" photo. I have been walking on the wall since I was 10. Sorry if it scares you, I have never fallen in the river, it is what it is. It IS NOT, repeat IS NOT illegal to walk up there or fish from there. It is also not illegal to fish from a bridge, unless it is posted. I have Never fished from there, maybe I just enjoy the chance involved....

I have been reading your posts for some time since I don't reside in Racine and don't get to keep a good eye on the action, if and when there is any. I joined because of the photo and your comments. I do appreciate your reports as they are timely and pretty accurate. It is just not right to post information that you are not certain of, especially if it relates to possible laws or ordinances.

I am moving on with life. Happy fishing!

yeah, I do see your point, I didn't realize the guy was actually standing on he wall, I have never seen that, that's just stupid...its not a very wide wall. But the other side of the wall (where most stand) is a sidewalk, what are they going to give a loitering ticket every time someone goes up to get a look or fish? Same with the bridge, its a public walkway, it doesn't say "no fishing from bridge" or wall for that matter anywhere that I have ever noticed. I say good luck with the tickets as long as it isn't posted.

disclaimer: I have never personally fished from either...lol.

Denesox I was told this long ago it was illegal! Not sure if it's true or not? But I know that being on that wall is a city thing and to be standing on their is just plain stupid and taking your life in your own hands if you slip and fall in. I actually heard that a police can give you a fine for being up their since it is city owend. Will dig more into it when I have time just trying to keep people safe and not trying to bust anyone's chops at all. I guess the saying goes fish at your own risk...
