Milwaukee River

Tip of the week 

use streamers to catch migrating fish.

Seven-day forecast 

use big flashy flies for best effect.Water levels are low Hot spots include Kletszch Park by the falls.

Steelhead and browns are in. We are all stocked up on the best salmon flies here at the Orvis store by the river! The best catching is by the falls at Kluettz park. Kings are about done...or overdone and dying. The river is seeing a 50% or greater decrease in Anadromous fish this year due to the ecological collapse of Lake Michigan. Browns and steelhead will be predominant from November onwards.
