Thanks for the video FishTails. I am expanding the rivers I fish for smallmouth. I have only fished the Fox in Waterford and Rochester, however, today I fished the Milwaukee River for the first time. My daughter had a swim meet at the YMCA in Brown Deer. Since I couldn't watch the meet, I snuck down to the river. Caught 5 smallmouths and missed one in less than an hour. Wondering where a rookie could wade the river with my 6th grade son; Grafton, Theinsville, Milwaukee? Any advice would be appreciated.
I had an epic afternoon this week shore fishing the Milwaukee River for Smallmouth Bass, Trout & More!
I saw several steelhead in a feeder creek last week.The river is now muddy and high,must have really rained hard Saturday night.Ozaukee County has maps of tributaries of Milwaukee River,as that's where steelhead go.
where is a good spot to shore fish from my 16 yr ols saw on larry smith show now he want to try for rainbows
Had a fun trip with Bailey and new friend Brad floating a raft down the Milwaukee and catching steelhead
The dark stripes make me think smolt
Wanted to try my hand at bead fishing some trout in the river. Normally a fly guy, but would like to expand my horizons. Watched a few YouTube videos, but still have some questions. Anybody willing to meet me on the river and show me the ropes? P.m. me if interested. Thinking about heading out this weekend for a bit. Thank you.
B.Stapes is right. The DNR started trying to reestablish the "coaster" brook trout this year via stocking. Very neat to see them in the river!
Could be a splake. Not sure if they still stock them. They look like brookies. Used to catch them all the time in the Oconto. Lot of them in the 24 - 25" range.
That is defiantly a Brooke. I believe they stocked some in the lake this past year and it makes sense they run up like the rest of the fall trout. Good to see it will be fun to pop one of those when they grow to 5+ lbs.
