Fished Friday afternoon for trout, throwing mix of spinners and crank baits. Had best results with smaller/medium spinners with orange in them. Got the two big ones within 15 minutes of each other (definitely different fish). Water was still a little high/fast, but fun getting out and getting into some nice browns!
Hingham! Amazing...we are so lucky to have such an amazing fishery in our backyard. Sounds like the DNR is comfortable raising stocking levels...hope it remains sustainable.
Past the first dam you will need an inland trout stamp I believe. Something to check into at least.
Yes, many fish made it past the Kohler dam this year with the flooding. Water was actually flowing around the side of the dam, I'll see if I can dig up a video I saw.

Thanks for all the info guys! Yeah kinda figured on normal years they couldnt get past that dam. But this year who knows how far they could really get with this high water!
Believe it or not I've seen pictures from a friend of mine of Samon in the Onion River below the Hingham dam!!!! Obviously the high water allows them to breach the Kohler dam. The more amazing aspect is that these salon traversed near 25-30 MILES of the Onion river to get to the Hingham dam area!! Incredible!!
Most years they can't...but walking Ravine Park in Kohler last week showed 100's of salmon...amazing year.
No, the salmon cannot make it past the dam. 2 community spots at intersection of Indiana and Taylor Ave. and another just upstream 300 or so yards at Esslingen Park.
Hey all I'm thinking of making my first trip over to the Sheboygan river and have been trying to do research on the salmon run. All i can find is stuff about the river wildlife area basically. My question is do the salmon make it past the dam on the river wildlife area by the golf course? Can salmon be caught up by Sheboygan falls?
I fished on Tuesday with Jeremiah for some smallmouth using a small jig head and a z-man soft plastic wormy looking thing and caught a fair amount of smallmouth ranging from 2 inches on up to 17 inches. When I was growing up we used to just call it jigging, but supposedly now the buzzword is "ned-rigging". We also caught 1 rock bass, 1 northern pike, and one pumpkinseed. The trick was to target the deep holes where the fish were hanging out. I made a video of the trip:
I tried contacting you rpmman.
Good report and nice video mystery. The sheboygan river is often times overlooked. If you ever want to do a video on small mouth fishing the sheboygan PM me.
