This will be my first year fishing for salmon/steelhead/trout during the spring run. Familiar with the two rivers area but other than that I am completely unaware of where are spots to get on the water, and most basic knowledge of the area and fishing. Looking to fish from two rivers to the mishicot area with the fly outfit. Any help would be greatly appreciated on where to get started. For example, can you just park on the side of the road by a bridge and wade in and fish? Thanks and tight lines.

I watched some guys do very well right after ice out using boiled shrimp under a bobber. Are they using the entire shrimp or ripping off a piece the size of a spawn sac?

Went through Tuesday mid day to check out the river. Froze solid from the last tail out all the way down to the lake. Also a large section of ice up by the big dam, for about 10 or 15' from the dam all the way to the fence on the river falls side. Not enough open water to fish.

If you know where you are going, you shouldnt have a problem getting fish. As mentioned below, if you arent familiar with the rivers or where the winter holes are, you will have a long day. I have also seen Habitual guide service with some nice catches already. Good advice nineweight!

Thanks for the advice but we've been out with a guide before and have done a ton of research on trout fishing in tributaries and harbors. Just trying to save a few bucks and go it alone this year. I'm very confident that if there are fish around we can manage to snag one.

I'm looking to get after some steelhead/brown next weekend and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Geared up for either ice or open water fishing. I'll be coming from La Crosse so it'll be make or break. Not looking for your favorite fishing hole but a shove in the right direction would be helpful. Feel free to PM or post on the board.

Thanks in advance and tight lines,

Figure8out. Hard to say how old the fish actually was. Though size is a good guideline it is not always accurate. There are big people and small people. Fish are no different. If it had spawn and was small it was probably an Arlee. They are smaller on average to begin with.

Not a huge factor anyway since natural repro in WI is only estimated to be about 2%. That is why catch and release is important, even in a put and take fishery. There is nothing wrong with selective harvest but getting some nice photos and releasing them is a reward in itself. Let em go let em grow, especially if they do not have any fin or maxillary clips! There is a great deal of catch and release practiced in other sports (musky especially) so why not for steelhead and browns?

I know the Charter boats take a lot of fish but there isnt much we can do aside from cutting down to a 3 fish limit (which i support by the way). As with most hunting and fishing, the key is not to get greedy. Tight lines.

The water is high but fishable, some steelhead left but mostly suckers.
