Better to try a variety of depths until you get action. Lately the trout (brown and now some rainbow) seem to be 5-6 feet down. But, burbot on the bottom in the river.

So I've fished off of veterans park in McKinley Harbor a few times and I've had no success but I'm not discouraged from that area yet I've seen big fish caught from there all times but is there a certain depth people like to run there baits I always set mine like a foot of the bottom but I feel it's to deep. Isn't it like 10 feet deep of the docks too?

Thinking of heading down from Greenbay Monday anyone know where I can get my hands on some spawn? Be willing to team up with someone never been down here.

Spawn or shiners as bait under a bobber.

Or anything you're confident in that resembles a minnow and can get to the depth of the fish. Spoons, cranks, plastics. I personally like kastmasters with a feathered treble, husky jerks, and paddletails...

Hi guys and gals,

I am new to fishing for trout, salmon or trout and I was wondering how to setup my line and use which bait . any help would be appriciated.

FYI I am planning on fishing from the mckinley area. (from shore). I looked at some of the youtube videos and only found fishing from river or icefishing videos. I think I can use some spoons and act like fishing for muskie but that is too much casting. Am I wrong?


Thanks in advance,.

Hey got a couple questions for all you Salmon buffs. I don’t fish for them much, is the King run over? How long does it usually last? I thought I remember last year seeing them in the river this time last year but haven’t seeing anything but dead ones. Any info on them would be much appreciated.

Not 100% true. The regulations states " to fish with more than three hooks, baits, or lures." Stating that one bait with 3 trebles is one unite can be misleading. The DNR follows this simple rule, if it is a rig/lure that can catch multiple fish then it is multiples into that 3 rule. So that's why an umbrella rig is illegal if it has more than 3 hooks on it, but a quick set rig would be considered 1. A crappie rig would be considered as many as it has hooks. A crankbait is considered 1 no matter the number of hooks technically.

So what Jericho stated is true, just not the most complete.

You may use up to 3 treble hooks...one bait w three trebles is considered as one unit...1 treble alone is 1 unit...crappie rig with 2 hooks ( or treble hooks ) is one unit.


Therefor:  You can fish w 2 lines ( one with one hook and the 2nd w 2 hooks...crappie rigs is legal).  3 lines w single or single treble is limit. 


When in doubt ask an oldtimer or consult the rule book / regulations!!


Tight lines....

One "treble" hook is ok. If thats what you meant.
