You can still go back there and fish
Lake Michigan - Milwaukee Harbor, Milwaukee County
Looking for a little information. I've fished the red railing around the Hoan Bridge and Summerfest grounds in the colder weather. What is the access like for fishermen down there now, with all the festivals that take place down there? I am looking to gain access Friday and this weekend to the parking/fishing area from under the Hoan Bridge around the red lighthouse to that park east of the Summerfest grounds. What are my chances?
i would try the summerfest lagoon or the rocks on the outside of lakeshore state park, the bulk of the SMB are in the river from the mouth all the way to mauthe lake though it is some of the finest smallmouth bass fishing in the state, imo.

Starting to see more consistent numbers in the harbor area. Sunny conditions, I have worked a green/blue Rippin’ Rap with good success. Cloudy conditions, I have slowed down to a yellow road runner with a white tube. All CPR. Tight lines everyone.
