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.

I've been down in this area for several years in the summer.  I have seen many tiny gill, bass (-10") and more strange minnows that I can't ID.  If you travel up river toward Hart Park, there are a couple of smaller holes that may hold a fish or two but, typical of the rivers of this size in the Milw. area, the water is too warm to support anything large enough to spend time chasing.  The reconstruction of the  concrete spillway has greatly improved the area available to fish and now is the time to stake out a twist or eddie to plan for steelies.  On the fun side, there is a large amount of golf balls to collect after every rain event.  Early in the year is better when the golfers are bad.  By the time the fall salmon run is on, the golf balls are gone.

Hook fish, not golf balls ;)

Any nice Lake Linker out there that would like to help me catch one fish out of the Menomonee River this Saturday?  I'm on a quest to catch 50 different species of fish in Wisconsin, and I'd like to catch a steelhead or a brown trout, or something like that out of the Menomonee River.  I've been to the Milwaukee Harbor countless times and failed every time.  I hear that the Menomonee River is a place where you can catch a steelhead right around this time of year.  I'd like to fish early in the morning this Saturday.  Any help, or if you'd like to meet me "down by the river" (No, I don't have a van, though) I'd be ever so grateful.

Someone left there fishing pole down at the river today 2/18/17. I would like to get it back to the right person, so drop me a message describing what it looks like, and where you left it. Thanks!

Heading over to Milwaukee this weekend to hunt and was going to bring some rods along to try and catch some salmon also. Anyone have any advice on dams or good river areas in Milwaukee? not asking for any secret spots, just new to the area and am unsure of the dam locations. Thanks! PM me please.
