Learn the Most Effective Wisconsin Salmon Egg Cure

By: Kyle Deavers Our river salmon season in Wisconsin has started earlier than we are used to this year. We already have salmon in harbors and rivers from Kenosha to Northern Wisconsin. These salmon have taken to the skein bite for the past few weeks and this pattern will continue through early October. This egg [...]

Wisconsin Salmon Fishing: Best in Many Years

By: Kyle Deavers This season has been a welcome sight to salmon anglers in Wisconsin. For the first time in many years we are catching large numbers of Chinook and they are much bigger than we’ve been seeing in previous years. This is the best bite we’ve had since 2010 and provides hope that our [...]

Southeast Wisconsin Poised For Solid Steelhead Action

By: Kyle Deavers Back in January we were dealing with record high runoff in Southeast Wisconsin. With that said, all our snow melted before February arrived. Therefore, currently our rivers are low and clear and there’s no snow on the ground. In order for steelhead to be spread throughout our systems we have to hope [...]

Milwaukee Still Seeing King Salmon

By: Kyle Deavers We don’t know how much longer our salmon run is going to last in Milwaukee Harbor, but we know there’s fish here now. Signs indicate that we are nearing the end of our run. However, after fishing here over the weekend I can confirm there’s plenty of salmon around. Most days I’ve [...]

Southeast Wisconsin Harbors Finally Showing Good Numbers of Salmon

By: Kyle Deavers Yesterday we got more than two inches of rain in Southeast Wisconsin and it did a few things. The influx of water triggered many of the salmon that were in our harbors to migrate upriver. It also drew fresh fish into our rivers and harbors and we’re hoping there’s more to follow. [...]

Wisconsin Salmon Staging on the Lakefront

By: Kyle Deavers The skein bite has been hit or miss the past few weeks in Southeast Wisconsin. Some days we’re getting a few fish to bite in the harbors and rivers on skein. Meanwhile, warmer than normal river and harbor temperatures are keeping most of the salmon pinned to the lakefront. With the current [...]

Wisconsin Pike Lethargic In Midst of Arctic Blast

By: Chris Shaffer Wisconsin’s weather has fluctuated the past two weeks. It nearly reached the 50s two weeks ago, before dropping a few inches of rain and then cascading below zero only a few days later. The massive swings in temperature pumped dirty water into the rivers and harbors and nearly compromised ice conditions prior [...]

Fall Like Weather Greeting Wisconsin Steelhead & Brown Trout Anglers

By: Kyle Deavers The last two years we were ice fishing our harbors and the lower part of the rivers during Christmas season along the Wisconsin shoreline. This winter, however, we’ve been fishing in warmer weather than we are used to. There’s no ice around and we aren’t expecting ice to form anytime in the [...]

Southern Wisconsin Anglers Working Hard For Salmon

By: Kyle Deavers It’s been a struggle to catch salmon in our harbors and rivers in Southern Wisconsin. Don’t get me wrong you can catch fish. However, we have to work very hard to get bit. This is one of the lowest returns I’ve seen in at least a decade. I’m catching fish. I haven’t [...]

Learn The Simplest Wisconsin Bobber & Egg Salmon Cure

So far we haven’t seen many kings or coho in our harbors in Southeast Wisconsin. However, as temperatures cool and we get some rain I’m expecting a fresh batch of salmon to migrate into our harbors and river systems. I’ve been fortunate to catch a few salmon already and recently cured a batch of skein [...]
