Peshtigo River, Marinette County
Are you sure you're not thinking of the oconto river? Either way you'll be fishing for smallmouth bass. You can find em anywhere and use just about anything for them. I like casting shallow diving (squarebill) crawfish colored cranks at rocky shorelines. Good luck
Hello all. I don't want to the be the fisherman who asks for advice and draws the ire of the locals. So my apologies in advance.My wife took the initiative to get ourselves away from Waukesha over Memorial Day weekend for my birthday. We will be staying at Riverview Condos....same stretch of river as Dockside Bar and Grill according to Google Maps. Never been to Peshtigo before. She is graciously allowing me to bring my Kayak. She is ungraciously limiting how much of my garage I can bring with us on this trip. Honest to goodness, I love that woman and she knows I don't get out often. But I will be limited to how many rods, reels, boxes I can stuff into the car. And when I am going somewhere I don't know, I tend to hedge my lack of experience by packing every lure I have ever owned, including those bought with paper route money back in 1985. Reading on this thread going backwards, I see info on walleye runs, and then not much?
Is there anyone willing to give some friendly advice based on where I am staying so I can plan/pack appropriately? I can't travel too far. Not eating anything. And fish species doesn't matter. If you all say I could have fun in a spot catching carp, then carp it will be.
Sorry for the long post. In all honesty, this post is for my wife. She surprised me with the trip because she knows I work hard and don't get out. Seeing me try to catch fish (she doesn't know the difference in fish species) will make her feel good for doing a good deed.

I was on the river for the first time, March 13th, dodging ice flows. No fish that day, but I got the info I was looking for. The next time back was the 20th of March. From then until my last trip on Saturday, 16th of April, I was on the water 20 days. We caught fish everyday. One of our best days was back in March, on the 29th, with 25 fish.
It was a good spring, different, but good. And frankly, it isn't over yet, but you can't believe what a guide says.
I would listen to the guys at the landing that tell you "the fish aren't biting" or "aren't in the river yet" or "the run is over."
