Late report from 4/18:

Decided to stop by Lincoln Sunday at 4:30 after visiting friends in Racine.  Had the river to myself.  Tried for an hour.  No bites, one fish seen.  Fished from lower footbridge to weir.

Decided to move to Colonial.  A couple cars in the lot, but didn't see anyone fishing.  Fished from footbridge to RCC.  Finally found some fish spawning just below RCC.  Hooked a huge buck steelie that cartwheeled several times before my leader broke.  If you catch one with a pink egg flies in it's jaw, thank me later.

Suprisingly, the fish stayed in that riffle.  Hooked another buck 5 minutes later on an egg sucking leech (pink/black).  Aerial display resulted in hook dislodgement.  Now the fish dispersed.

Fished upstream for a while, then returned to the same riffle and caught a smaller spawned out female.  This 20 in her put up a good fight too, but stayed hooked up all the way to my stringer.

Sae the DNR creek census taker at both locations.  Fish are there and there isn't much pressure.  Get out and enjoy before it's over!

Thanks for the usgs website about the water levels.  For steelhead fishing this spring, what water level range is ideal?

Hey anglers, my Brother In Law and I were planning on fishing the root in Racine tomorrow. Any pointers or advice? Lived here my whole life but never tried river fishing. Much appreciated

Going to be down in Racine Thurs-Sun and usually fish Sheboygan north to Door County.  Would like to try the Root.  Just curious if anyone could give me a few starting points to try for steelhead and browns.  CPR only for me.  If someone would like to meet up I'd be willing to do that as well for a few hours.  Any help would be appreciated!

It hit about 2,000 CFS and has dropped down to about 1,000 CFS so its still blown out. A couple days with no rain and it should be good again. I check the flow at the USGS site below.
