I would like to catch a sucker, but I'm not sure where to go fishing for them.  I'm heading out tomorrow.  Where's a spot I can fish from shore for suckers?  I've got to check that one off my list of 50 species of fish in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin river around Portage is a place I catch them quite often. Also, by the time you catch a sucker, you will have half the other species caught too without even moving. You may even catch the elusive Lake Wisconsin Coho.

There are some suckers still running, but not as heavily.

I looked on the map around Friess Lake, but I don't know where I'd access the river.  I need to get some waders!  Maybe I'll try the by the springs on Sunday.  Thanks for the tips!

Try Pike Creek/River in Petrifying Springs park. Was there today but water was a little dirty. When it clears in a couple days they should be in there heavy.

It may be more of a hike than you need to make for a sucker but we caught a lot of suckers during the run where Mill Creek flows into the WI River south of Stevens Point.  There's a tavern there called Rusty's Backwater Saloon.  You will likely double up on WI species while you're there as the redhorse run with the suckers.

Not much help here, but friends in my youth (30 years ago) speared suckers heavily on the Oconomowoc River just off Freiss Lake, near Hubertus...Can't remember anyone catching them hook and line though.
