Do the steelhead still show up in this stretch of river? I caught one about 10 years ago and I make the trip back about once a year and I never see any people or fish. Maybe I am timing it wrong?

How has the fishing been in the Menomonee River between Miller park and Lake Michigan? Can the salmon run upstream there still?
I rember when I was a kid we used to fish under the 35th st viaduct. Near county stadium and steelhead would run there.
do the salmon still run there? I know the run is coming up and every one and their brother with be elbow to elbow at the normal spots around Milwaukee. I may have a golden spot to fish on the Menomonee River near 12th and Bruce street because the company I work for has a gated warehouse right there and I have access to about 400 feet of shoreline. It’s looks pretty deep in that area. I’m looking to possibly throw spoons from shore there and see if there is a few people that would want to fish it with me in the evenings and show me the ropes. Any info would help. Please post any input here.

Live near by and scout this spot daily, kings are running alright, mostly only seeing one or two at a time. Haven't seen any coho or anything else. Using floating spawn sacks I hooked into a large king who almost immediately bent my hook straight. I'll be back until I get a good sized one :) look for the sparkly black bike with orange accents. The ones I see up is far are typically full spawn colors and pretty beat up, I would head further down stream for good eating fish, but here you will get a great fight

Scouted Menomonee at Miller Park on 10/2 ~ 4pm. Water real low and barely moving. Saw 3 fresh Kings likely 12-15 lbs moving through the river. No redds. Rain Wednesday and into weekend will likely jumpstart the run.
