Milwaukee Salmon Fishing Heats Up!

Coho, Chinooks and Rainbow make up the majority of the catch with an occasional Lake Trout. Surface water has warmed to 58 degrees and most of the action is 25 to 50 down in the 48 degree water. Spoons are now more important than ever to improving your catch. They should be your go to bait as the water approaches the most active range of your favorite species.

How to Catch Salmon and Trout

With the warmer water the most aggressive Coho and Chinooks are coming on magnum spoons. Reapers and Vulcans made by have been working for us. The Magnum Reaper Fish n Chip is the hot bait for the bright blue sky condition we have had the last two days. I have been running this spoon on all twelve of my lines and getting action all day long. 150 copper behind a Church Walleye Board is one of our best presentations.

Six, eight and ten color leadcores are also working. Coho are from 25 feet to 50 down on downriggers as well. Chinooks are in pockets of colder 46-48 degree water. Wire divers have replaced the braid divers set to #2 with 60 to 120 feet if line out. The surface is almost sixty degrees and it is time to work the Rainbow Trout in the top twenty feet.

Two and Three color leadcore with the Regular Vulcan Dolphin Green and Silver has taken Rainbows to twelve pounds the last several days. A little faster speed about 2.5 is required for Rainbows. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed at the ball. The big Chinook are hitting on Reaper Magnum Glow spoons. The boat speed of 1.9 to 2.2 has been best.

Where to Catch Salmon and Trout

Fish east of Milwaukee 45 to 200 feet of water. Head out the Main gap Milwaukee 65 degrees. Fish northeast in White Fish Bay for the best action.

Have a great fishing season!
