salmon near milwaukee

3 posts in this topic

I have to attend a family gathering in madison this weekend and I can get away on saturday to do a little fishing. I was hoping to get my 9 yr old into a salmon or two. I myself have only fished them a couple of times and never in the milwaukee area. Are they running yet and does anyone know of an area we could fish from shore? Are there even any streams in the area or is most salmon fishing done further north? I'm just looking for a point in the right direction as I know nothing about this area.. I know he would love to hook into one and this will be my only chance this year. Thank you in advance for any info. Shane

Shane. I grew up in mildub. Lived there for twenty five years. And know Lake Michigan like the back of my hand. Go to Mikinley marina. Great shore fishing. Also try under the Hoan Bridge(Milwakee River). Its kinda funny what a shiner 7ft under a bobber will get ya at this time of year. good luck. If I had my choice I would go after the enevitable 17" perch. but that is in nov. under the bridge.

Thank you for the info Hotime. hopefully I can put it to good use. If I may ask another question, Can I assume these areas are walls or large rocks where a person needs a long handled net to get the fish? Thanks
