it was a trout for sure saw the white mouth and the shape matched, i also went to the kewaunee viewing window and saw lots of browns. my friend said there by the kewaunee dam almost all summer (maybe the river itself is cooler than east twin) ill have a video of the viewing window up today. also are there browns at mishicot? (i know its hard to tell from the picture)

Salmon are already showing up in the fish viewing window in Kewaunee so I would not doubt those were salmon you saw

In past years I remember seeing perfect chromers floating belly up in early september . I always assumed they ran early ( for some unknown reason ) but couldnt handle the warm temps or lack of O2 .

maybe this year the temps are a bit lower ; or flow is a bit better . but yeah , like Chin said...that wouldnt explain the redd . maybe its just messed up .

Not calling you a liar but I was there for a bit this afternoon and I highly doubt there are any trout or salmon around with a 72 degree water temp. I saw no fish. Id say carp.

Two years ago I saw a couple kings and several browns way up the Manitowoc river in the second half of August. Actually unintentionally snagged one of the kings casting for smallies and walked right up to one of the browns almost touching it before it took off.

My guess is it was an early salmon. It has been a cold summer, so might be an early run. Also, it might be a brown or steelhead, but they usually come up after the salmon so the salmon are usually first.

Could be a skamanian, but they were last planted 6 years ago so even if there are any still alive, I doubt they would make the run. Could be one from another state, but that seems pretty unlikely. Are you sure it wasn't a carp just chilling?

skams don't spawn in summer so that wouldn't explain the redds. With unreasonably cool temps, lots of rain, and being straight across the lake from where they do stock skams, easily could have been some strays! I would say a 5 year old steelhead is old.

Could be, last time they were stocked was back in 2008 for the east and the west twin. How old do steelhead get?
