I second norskies, the fox in Burlington, Rochester, waterford has lots of smallies. A lot of the river in spots is waddable as well. Lots of small fish but I have caught probably a couple dozen legal sized fish the past few years up to 20 inches. Water now is low so if you explore and find holes and current breaks they are there. Good shore fishing spots now are echo dam, Rochester dam, waterford dam. Water is a little low now though

Milwaukee river would  be your best bet in my opinion.

You can get smallmouth at any of the milwaukee parks on the river.

My last 2 weekends of fishing have been pretty slow but this weekend is off to a great start!  Fished yesterday 11-3 and caught about 30 LMB and a couple gils. Mostly small with a few 16-17. This morning went out 6:30 to 8 and caught a few nice northern around the 30" mark. Everything caught on spinners and swim jigs in 6' or less.

Racine area river fishing.

Got skunked at my usual lake, so then decided to hit the river and do some site seeing and fishing.

Got 6 smallish bass and missed 2 bigger ones next to yak as they shook the spinner.

Also got 2 small pike, not even close to legal 26 inches.

Saw a bunch of huge carp and some other big fish which might have been a catfish.

All fish CPR and all hit a homemade inline spinner :-)

Tough outing today on the water for me.  Returned to where the fishing was good yesterday. Fished from 4-7pm. Well, 24 hours later and the fish changed the rules of the game. 

JaybeeTurtle was informed of yesterday's outing and he beat me to the spot. I will leave it to him to report his outing. He had a better outing than I did. 

Ultimately caught a fair amount of fish but the keepers were nowhere to be found. Wind changed from east to south and minnow activity was minimal to none today. I guess that's why it's called fishing.

It's just a juvenile pike, spots are not fully developed yet, you can tell from the fins it's a pike :-)
