Was by the river downtown by the MOWA from 11:45-3. Caught 2 smallies. Plenty of hits, but kept getting snagged. This beauty below hit a drag n drop. It measured out at 15 in. I would have sworn I hooked a monster!! Great day to be out. 


I cant believe there aren’t more people that fish this river!!

Was out by the river walk in WB today. Plenty of hits but only connected 3 times. Caught on small crankbaits and soft plastic craws. They were small but a blast to catch.

Hi,

I am heading up to West Bend tomorrow and hoping to get out on the Milwaukee River.  I have never been up there before.  Does anyone know if the River is wadeable right now or would I need a boat?  If it is wadeable, where are some good spots to get in the water?


Thanks,

Over the past 12 years I only caught 2 small walleyes in Mequon.

Both were caught while fishing for smallmouths. These fish were

about 17 inches. I guess I would say that based on that there

aren't many to catch. Now fast forward to last September.

I was fishing with a #11 shadow rap and  had a bad backlash.

While drifting down the river while probably 60' of loose line

out something hit the rapala. It was a 28" walleye. So they

are there but not very many.

Fish... though walleye were stocked in the 70's or 80's they are a rare catch that far up. If your looking to catch one out of the river I would try down by the mouth more or mequan area got a buddy with a pig on the wall from that area

There may be a few walleyes...but it is illegal to fish for them during closed season on that section of the milwaukee river. It is from the hwy 60 dam in grafton and south you can fish for game fish besides bass all year.

Do Walleye run through West Bend for spawning? By either dams?

Eight years later, we took a trip from Kewaskum to hwy D . 3 mi. and one hour. We didn't fish but was a nice paddle. There are feeder streams all over up there that could hold trout. I guess.

Looking to fish the river Thursday, is worth fishing the lake north of the dam or below the dam. any lure suggestions.

Went out for a little bit after work, caught a couple of Small Mouth Bass, below the dam in Barton. Smallest one was 9 inches, biggest was 13 inches.
