I will be going out later today, I will post tonight on the water levels.
I finally landed a couple of steelhead yesterday. They were pretty beat up though, probably got stuck up river when the levels went down.
Water is very low in all rivers in Manitowoc county. Think summer/fall water levels.
Clear/ semi-stained clarity.
Fish have been caught but I would imagine they will either be holding in deeper pools or dropped back into the harbour with the receding water.
If I were you I would wait for either a few days of very warm weather to melt some more ice/snow or for a good snow or rainfall before making the trip.
Any reports on the Steelhead fishing? How's the water clarity, temp., depth? Thinking of making the 1.5 hour drive to fish on Friday, if the fishing is worthwhile. Any pointers would be much appreciated.
I made my own cured eggs from last weekend when my mom went fishing with my uncle's. My mom kept a female salmon so, luckily i made cure eggs into sacs. The pictures are from today this morning. All 5 salmon are hooked in the mouth.
