Ben,

Saw one on the river off Hwy 16 yesterday. Don't know where they put in though. It was a 12' with a small outboard.

There are a few specie by the bridge. Smallie, rock bass and gills, and if you go a bit upstream or down, pike and largemouth. Live bait or a slower artificial presentation will pull them in this time of the year

Hello, first time poster here.

Quick question I have for the Oconomowoc River. Close to where the river meets Lake Lowe there is a small bridge crossing the river. Earlier this year I was canoeing this stretch and there was a guy fly fishing under this bridge and was catching fish. I was hangin around the lake for awhile and when I made my way back this guy was already gone so I couldn't ask him what he was catching, baits etc.

To get to this bridge on foot, I need to hike through a gorgeous ice age park. I plan on taking my 7yr old daughter on a hike and would like to stop at this bridge to fish for awhile.

Can anybody provide suggestions on what type of lures/baits I should use? What types of fish may be in here?

I really appreciate any help. Thanks for reading.

I think the very low water levels have pushed a lot of the fish down to the Rock river. River fish are migratory, and will move several miles to find better habitat.

As for walleye, have caught a few in the last 20 years, but never more than 2 in a day. Biggest was 19 inches.

Where as I disagree with "Piker Biker" that there's not alot of numbers in this river. (there is!) Everytime I go I catch at least 4 pike. Thats on a bad day! I do agree with him that people need to relax on the keeping of the Pike. I remember catching 40"+ on this river and as nearly as large of pike pretty regularly and yearly. (Winter as well!)The overall quality of size has decreased very noticeably. Just not the numbers in my opinion. Side note: whats the biggest Walleye any of you have caught on the river? mine was 22" but they're pretty rare find in cetain parts. Tight Lines all.
