Yes, the launch is open, but the peirs have been removed for the season. At least as of yesterday, water around the plant was the color of sand. Btw stay to the right on exit, there is a bit of a sandbar at the mouth.

Yesterday it was chocolate milk ... but, the west wind today may clear it up a bit. Also, loads of spawning kings at McKinley ... even saw several try to go up the boat ramps, they were 2-3' up the cement ... thinking they were going upstream I guess.

Great day of fishing, went 4/6. Caught all fish on slip bobber set-up's with 15# fluorocarbon, size 1 Gamakatsu Octopus hooks, and cured skein. Kings are still hanging around. Tight lines!
I’m going to pick up some cranks and skeins...how does a slip bobber work? That’s what I was told to use...also the temp is about to really drop in a couple days so who knows what that will do for fishing....I live a block from the Milwaukee river but the current is crazy and impossible to fish and I don’t even thing there is any fish in there atm

First time fishing here in years but now I live close. Went at 1830 with spoons only to find out the choice bait were crank baits...seen 2 others catching fish with them. Another fellow was fishing with skeins on a bobber but said no action. I’m going to pick up some crank baits today and another pole to float some skeins while I work the crankers
