figure, it would probably work, but not as good as a fully mature one. That fish was probably 2 years old (total guess), and usually 3 is when they are more mature.

Spent a few hours at Mishicot dam today; not a thing doing and I was the only one there for most of the morning. Water was very high (small island still underwater). Saw them jumping, but they weren't hungry. Also went to Shoto, and was slow as well.

just wondering how the water levels are from all the rain we got on Sunday and if people think that it would be worth making the drive from Appleton on Saturday. And do people think if we get the rain on Friday that it will make the water rise a lot to make it unfishable thanks and tight lines Big Smile

Not sure the name, but the gas station by the roundabout by the dam has spawn also.

Shaunja-you can try Louie's S.G. in Manitowoc-they usually are well-stocked and, more importantly;licensed to sell spawn-sacs. Unsure of your location, so, this is my only known point of acquisition. Good Luck to 'ya!

Went this AM. Water is chocolate milk and higher than it has been at any point this year... Suckers surfacing EVERYWHERE... all female trout caught over past few days have been spawned out or spittin eggs (same at mishicot and kewaunee), even the silver ones... with water temps at 48 this AM, it is safe to say we are reaching the end.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to find some fresh spawn sacks? I'm heading that way in the next couple of days to try for some steelhead. It can be a bait shop or, if anyone on here makes their own and are willing to sell some, that would be great too. Feel free to pm me.

Tight lines Cool

They will be in there still, and the last (or near last) bunch should run up with the rain (both suckers and steelhead). The spawned out ones may head back, too. However, the next few days will be unfishable probably.

All you lucky people not have to work today should be out before the serious weather changes. We did not get that much rain in the Manitowoc area, we have a very nice overcast. As long as the barometer is steady go for it! I read an article recently concerning high water conditions for steelhead. According to the author we should be drifiting our bait a little bit higher because the slower current at the bottom has increased in depth. Anyone one trying this technique please gat back to me.
