@Sea....I think a lot of us are in the same boat (no pun intended). Rig is winterized and we're chomping at the bit once there is a hint of a break-up. If you're a groundhog follower you'll get it out; but I can tell you that one afternoon last week the river and National launch were completely free of ice. The next morning after a 10 degree night I went down under the Hoan to throw in a line. The entire river was locked up. I had more action dodging ice chunks than bites. I think there is less freight traffic down the river with a lack of coal coming in, and it tends to tighten up quickly. 12-14 hours at night of cold weather is a long time to build ice versus a slow warm-up during day when you hit a high of 30 deg. at 3:00 PM. Not to discourage you; but I'd wait. Not that I trust the long term forecast much; but it looks to be colder temps after this weekend. Just my .02. Coin flip decision.....just make sure the coin flips and there isn't a do-over.

Hey all!! I packed my rig up in late November, but since it has been so warm out, do you think it would be worth it for me to "un-pack" her and take her out on the water? inside the wall or the river?? thanks, Sea Plehn

Keep in mind that there are no piers at McKinley.

If you go to McKinley, bring a leaf blower and a snow shovel to clean the debris off the ramp.

Any idea if the McKinnley launch could ice up with some of the lows tonight? If so, is the launch near the mouth of the river safe? Maybe heard about some break ins down there. Does that launch have plenty of parking? Thanks.

Brown trout fishing is incredible right now. Average size is pretty high up there too. Milwaukee harbor and bender park were very good over the last 4 days. Location of fish as far as depth seemed to change a bit each day, but when you found them is was good. Flat line flicker shads 40 to 70 feet behind the boat were top producers. The blue knight will be a great bait, as it caught a few, but red and gold flickers or all gold flickers were the best for us. Spoons chimed in too on 2 and 3 color lead in HUD, red killer, and orange killer. Did not run righers or Dipsys. With mild temps this could be a blockbuster winter for brown fishing as I don't think Ice will be with us any time soon. Lake temps are in the low 40s still. Annual Salmon school dates will be posted over the next week so stay tuned. Focus will be focused on producing with our changing fishery. Good luck and see you on the water.

Ha, yeah I'm not the best at identifying these trout yet. Either way a lot of fun was had!

Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 46° - 50° F Water Temp: 40° - 45° F
Went out last night from about noon to dark looking for brown trout and ended up nailing cohos instead but no complaints here. I went 5 for 7 with four cohos over 24 inches long and a gorgeous 27" brown trout. I kept 3 of the cohos and the other went back as did the brown. Trolled 3 flat line rods with flicker shads. 10 to 35 fow.
