Just curious if there's still any salmon to be caught in shallow or if it's pretty much just Browns now?

 I have never fished for salmon in the fall. I am taking my two grandchildren to Port Washington to fish on Friday and Saturday. I would appreciate any pointers as far as what bait to use and depth of water. Thank you in advance!

@Jigging Jill,

  As far as fishing from the pier goes, the kings are already in, there are fish all over the harbor. The king salmon run starts around early to mid-October when the kings start running upstream.

When do the Salmon start their fall spawning run ...When will it be productive to fish for salmon from the pier? Is it a matter of water temperature??

We do get some limited natural reproduction on our part of the lake. Very limited. There is some that occurs in Sauk Creek as well as Mineral Springs Creek. There is a bit in the Sheboygan River drainage as well and they've been seeing pinks there for a few years now. These are most likely strays from there and we could be more likely to see more in years to come farther south in the lake.

Beautiful Pink salmon! In all my years fishing for salmon, albeit only 12 years, I've only seen one pink salmon and it was a ol'male humpy. Ah the good times and pics :D
