Mid-day trip, sunny and warm on Sunday. Smallies active, nothing over 13 inches, but lots of fun w/ daughter. Crawlers, small spinners, and twitched cranks.
Milwaukee River, Kletzsch Park
76° - 80° F
Taking my daughter to holes above the dam in a couple days, fishin w/ crawlers along the bottom for whatever and cranks and tubes for smallies. Any info on water clarity or level, skeeter fierceness, or fishin activity?
Does anyone know if the steelhead are running after this rain or will it be a week?
Is there any open water that's fishable down there? Looking to get some steelhead
Has anyone tried for Steelies in the river yet? Trying to figure out if it’s worth a couple of hours.
I use Gapen's freshwater shrimp jigs, I buy them from R & R in Cudahy. I usually prefer the white and olive.
For the jigs what should they look like?
Drift spawn and jigs under a float.
Does anyone have tips for catching these late fall/winter steelhead in the river?
Anyone know if any Steelies are still in the rivers or have they all headed back out into the Big Pond?
