Burnin, where do you park and access the river? I'm from Jeff. Co. and only ever ice fished in McKinley. I'd really like to try the river this spring and summer, too, if it's worth it.

Are there any other lake link pages to check out for spring & summer fishing info downtown?

Spawnman I was out on the menomonee river just west of the harley museum Sunday from 1pm to 4pm. There was no ice and none was flowing down the river. Steam was rising off the river all day. Strong winds coming out from the north west put wind chills in the -10 to -20 range. We had 5' to 7' rods with large shiners suspended about 6 to 8 ft down from a bobber. Between the 2 of us we had 1 northern and 1 nice eater brown trout. Pretty slow for that spot. Same spot years ago caught limit on salmon and trout. Cool

I know it's not the season but I would like to prepare. During the salmon run I met a few guys that let me use some cured skein and I'm hooked. I would like to cure my own and would like input on what color works best? I've seen red, pink, orange. On the procure website there are different colors like glo orange or fluorescent orange for example. What colors do you guys use? Also what about the color of borax? I would be purchasing procures brand of cures and borax.

Been keeping an eye on the PW, MKE, and Racine threads the last few weeks and I've decided enough is enough. Gotta get back out with a rod in my hand soon! Have only fished down in the MKE harbor a couple times with some buddies and we had varied success. From what I've been reading, it seems like shiners have been working for both browns and pike lately, and I was wondering where the best place to get minnows is around the area. I'm coming from north of the city and there isn't too much around my area without going to Cabela's or Port. I'll be bringing some spawn to put on an auto and maybe a few tip ups for the shiners. Is it worth it to bring a jigging rod and some plastics or a spoon? Feel free to PM me if you'd like! Thanks guys and tight lines! Cool

Skeeter - National , South Shore, and Bender are the most common. Currently mega ice jam. If you have a small enough boat, we've been known to slide them over the ice hump, but it isn't a safe thing for someone that isn't familiar or comfortable with that option. Also, be very careful this time of year with the ice pack. If it shifts and your boat is amongst it, your boat can easily be crushed or flipped.

shoot me a PM if you need more details

Skeeter- Unless you fish out of a tug boat\ ice breaker, you won't be doing any casting for browns anytime soon. Temps are barely above 0, everythings locked up.

Yeah there's something primitive about hand lining trout with Gamo hooks, braided line and flourocarbon leaders. Those autos take the man right outta the sport. It's a good thing I kill deer with my bare hands instead of a gun or I wouldn't even be able to face the wife.
