Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Freshwater Fishing Report
70 feet White Fish Bay

The fishing was good last weekend. We are finding colder water and schools of baitfish in 30 to 100 feet of water The temp break was down 25 feet to 47 degrees. Chinook numbers were down this last weekend with some five to seven pound Lake Trout picking up the slack. Lakers were active on the bottom in 90 feet of water. Coho are still coming on flasher flies on the wire divers 3 set 130 feet on the line counter. Brown trout were solid on 2,3,4,5,6 and 8 color lead core on boards with regular size Vulcan spoons. The OL Sherbet color was best all season. Chins went for Vulcan spoons in blue/silver or green/silver. Downriggers on the bottom with size 0 dodgers and Spin n Glows are taking the Lakers. Reapers and Vulcans made by have been working for us. The small silver Vulcan in green or blue has also been good on the lead cores for exciting Rainbows. I hope this helps.

Lake Trout action was a big part of our catch all week on magnum spoons 100 to 130 down or Spin n glows.

Brown Trout action was hot on small spoons on lead core.

Rainbow Trout were slow hitting Vulcan Dolphin Green and Silver spoons in the top 40 feet.

Coho have slowed down most of them came 70 down on Magnum Reapers Fish N Chips spoons or flasher flies.

Bait fish are in 30 to 100 I fished anywhere inside of 100 feet in Whitefish Bay. Near shore action on McKinley pier has improved the black Chinooks and a few Browns being caught. Head northeast and set lines in 30 feet. Troll northeast have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
