I got out yesterday with some success. (not as much as I was hoping for, but good to get out nonetheless). Feel free to check out my video report below.

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?
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.
