Are there any walleye in the Root River above or below the Racine Dam?  If not could this area along with Quarry Lake have some walleye fry introduced.  Our water quality is a lot better than the Milwaukee River and I have caught walleye near the North Ave Dam and Estabrook Dam.  Thanks.

Looks like water   is bit higher , but  fishermen are always there , just be careful it's very slippery and fish smart , how high steelhead can jump ??? Is this rainbow  ? Or steelhead sitting in river for longer time ? That was male

Hey all..I really haven't fished this river much and was looking for some advice on what to use when fly fishing. What flys, techniques. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Was just looking at the usgs, man that river shot up fast. Glad I didn't plan a trip out this weekend. Must have been a serious down pour and snow melt?

You would be correct.  If the females aren't ripe they'll put them back into the tank until they are loose

Just wondering why  they didn't take eggs, are the fish not ready yet?
