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!

Fished Manitowoc then came down to Sheboygan, the fishes are def in
Got out in the area recently and found some fish in some tiny tributaries. Caught two steelies between the two of us on spawn under a float. Check it out!!
After watching the video posted by mystery I decided to try float fishing for steelhead for the first time. In the past I had always just fished spinners and had some ok days but always seemed guys float fishing were doing better than I was. Still have a long way to go and learn on this technique but did manage to get one nice steelhead before the snow moved in. Picked up some floats from fleet farm and some orange beads from the bait shop on the corner of J and 57. Conditions were less than ideal, spent time trying to find some areas with a little slower current. Hope this helps.
Undisclosed area... Yet previously posts a video clearly showing location. Ha.
Got out float fishing for the first time! What a rush!
Don't really care to much for the salmon run. Seen a couple caught in the rivers. When will trout start to push up. I know we need Temps to drop and rain. But I prefer to catch bows or browns. As far as access to sheboygan. Are you allowed to fish the parks, West of 43 to fish the golf course area thinking about floating down with the yak to get to some rapids. Does sheboygan have a better spring run or fall run for bows?
Is it worth a shot trying for steelhead
