Want to try steelhead for the first time this year. Any of you guys have any advise on what I need and what's a waste of money
Any trout being caught yet?
Maybe check with the DNR before trying. You may need to preserve them first. Hate to see someone get jammed up unnecessarily.
Heard a few days ago that there's little water flow but river still had ice. Browns were caught in some spots though.
Was hoping someone in the area could let me know how shoto area is looking for water flow or is it all iced up yet? Thanks in advance!
Cletus, keep a few suckers and try smoking them, they are good. Pa used to love them in spring!!
Certainly there will be some around yet. I fished the Sheboygan River yesterday and there are still a few up there as well. Northerns were in thick and some smallies now but some steelies are still in as well. I would think it would be similar for this river.
Any steel head still around or is that party over?
Fished today from 1pm to 440pm. Drifted spawn with bobber, lost one the first half hour I fished. Switched to hair jigs and managed 1 nice male steelhead about 4pm. Also saw suckers being caught. Overall slow day in my opinion. Quite a few guys coming and going while I was there. Only saw 1 other steelhead caught.
Hello everyone! I’ve heard that the steelhead are running. I would love to go this weekend but I feel like it’s a waste of time and gas when I could be going for Walleye. I’ve been going spring steelhead fishing for a few years and I seem to get skunked every time (I have never caught a steelie before). I have only fished Michicot/Kewaunee with a floating spawn sack set up. I feel like I may have had bad luck due to timing. Does anyone have any advice? Locations, set ups, habits of the steelhead? Any knowledge would be appreciated as I would love to make this a traditional trip. Feel free to private message me. Good luck and stay safe out there!
