fishgeeter, your best bet now is fish the piers in Manitowoc or two rivers for browns, spawn on the bottom or cast cleos. you also need a great lakes trout and salmon stamp not inland.

From everything I have heard and saw last week, it's been slow.

As for spinning gear, it works great, but if you go to Shoto dam or Mishicot dam right now (or in fall), there WILL be people there and you won't be able to use it without getting in people's way and tangling lines. If you somehow are the only person at the dam (very unlikely), then you could use it with success (I use spinners there and have success when I am the only person there, which is rare). The water is low at the dam, though, in general, so using a cleo would probably not be advisable there.

However, downstream from the dams, people use cleos and spinners more frequently as the water is a lot deeper and there are generally less people.

Floats w/ spawn are the most widely used item, particularly at the dams. If you are at the dam and there is more than 2 or 3 people, be courteous and do what they are doing (so you don't tangle lines); if they are float fishing, use floats. If they are using spinning gear, cast away.

As for what is up river: Chinooks generally start in early to late September and usually stop in October. Cohos and browns start up shortly after (late Sept to mid Oct). Cohos are generally done in November and some Browns will stay and keep going up through spring, but most are done in early spring. Rainbows will slowly start around the time cohos and browns move up, but generally it's a slow trickle until the first ice melts. I have heard of rainbows being caught up river all the way in June. Seen some caught in May personally.

It depends on the weather, mainly. Right now it will be mostly rainbows (and suckers), with a few browns mixed in

Fish geeter the fish that run these rivers in spring are steelhead aka rainbow trout and the occasional brown trout, judging by the lack of reports the actions not great. Little cleos will work also a spinning setup will work as well. You can get spawn at the local gas station on highway 10 in shoto. When or if useing spawn you can bounce bottom with it or run it under a float but float fishing is another game best googled because I dont have enough room to explain here. You need a great lakes trout stamp to fish trout from the mouth to first dam. I think that sums it up, good luck and try and practice cpr thx

Sorry not a report looking for advice, Gonna try fishing this weekend over there. Are you targeting Browns and salmon? Also would a spinning reel with spinner baits work or would you use little cleos? Spawn sacks ? Do you buy these at the bait shop hook'em on a hook and let them float down? I know a lot of questions Sad just trying to learn and not look like dumb Xss while I'm doing it. I fish eyes most of the time. Thanks in advance oh yea inland thought stamp right?

Water is high and fast. Has a clarity of about 2 inches. Fished from 6:30-10. Noone doing any good on floats and spawn. Saw a older guy lose one at the net on a casting spoon. They're in there. Sucker too. Saw the same guy catch a nice northern too.

Fished the dam in Mishicot from 6-11. Saw over 20 people cycle through and saw 1 fish caught. We need more flow to get the fish up.

Well, gotta ask, did the little bit of rain we got change anything at all?? Was in Kewaunee yesterday morning with no luck. Couple surfacing here and there but would not gobble up the spawn, if you have a fly rod you might have better luck!!Smile Tounge Out

Rain coming tomorrow, Sunday, a bit of snow on next Wednesday and more rain next Thursday. Hopefully it raises the water up. Probably will be low even after that precip, though.. Wasn't much snow this past winter and low water levels already...

Hate to ask but did the water change any from last week with sundays rain? Im guessing that it is going to stay the way it is all spring?

Thanks
