smokenfish- there's a lot of great spots, if your near the dam, there's a hole just below the hotel parking lot, not big but usually holds a fish or 2, move downstream to the corner which is a big hole but normally crowded, off quarry parking lot there's a big rock ALWAYS holds a few. Down at Lincoln fish the curves, against the wall, I like downstream from the foot bridge. I have many more if you need just ask. ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP A FELLOW FISHERMAN/WOMAN WHEN I CAN!!!!!!!!

Stopped at the weir between meetings to take a look around and to do some scouting. Haven't been there since my college days at Carthage, 13 years now.... Got my patrons license this year, which includes both Great Lakes and inland salmon stamps, so I'll be back!

The river is really high, and the weir was closed. According to the board, they last counted fish on 4/11.

If the rain holds off, there should be some good fishing coming soon.

Good luck and keep the water on the outside of the waders!

My report from Friday was the first and last report I will post. I understand both sentiments. I really do. I know that the other steelhead streams do not have posts. I grew up in Duluth fishing the north shore streams, and the Brule. With trips to the Betsy, Platte, Manistique, and several UP rivers in Michigan. Certainly stomping around on the rivers is the only way to truly succeed in chasing the steelies. And the Root certainly takes good runs, compared to the rivers I grew up fishing. So I suggest that you all stomp around. You will have success.

OK Princecraft I can appreciate your feelings and agree that showing off a catch puts bodies on the river but other than checking to see who's catching what and criticizing them for their post why then do you persist on this page. Please explain the value of your presence to us. If you are not catching fish, don't blame the people who do, be a "Prince" and go to Michigan and Indiana as you suggested. Oh, nobody is posting catches there as you told us so you won't go. Wow, you seem just a tad hypocritical now don't you. People like you, "Prince the Purist", think you own it all, everyone who bought a license and supports the fishery financially is entitled to be there for the ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC FISHING ON THE ROOT RIVER IN RACINE COUNTY WISCONSIN. "Prince" is even giving parking directions and locations as well.What a "Prince" he is, ya'll know the kind of guy I am talking about, they are always fishing alone becuase they are such ????"s, nice guys ya know.

And you wonder why Minnesota, Michigan and Indiana have such outstanding fisheries? Go look at those states on here, no ones posting anything for the internet Heros. But then again what do I know besides there were 15 cars in the quarry parking lot yesterday and guys close to elbow to elbow all the way up to the dam. I'm still trying to figure out why can't people go out stomp the water and figure out things on their own instead of waiting for someone to come on here saying there's a bite happening.

CaptTerrific there is a pretty a good number of suckers in the river right now and from what I've seen they're some pretty big ones.

Not a report. I am going to be passing through the area this weekend. Was wondering if anyone can tell me if the suckers are in this river system. Just thought it would be nice if the kids could pull in some monster suckers. Any information is appreciated. Thanks.

Just fish by the most guys you can find. Crowd fishing usually works the best.
