Southeast Region: Sheboygan County - In Sheboygan fishing pressure off the south pier has been minimal, but those out have taken a few small rainbow trout on spoons. Shore anglers working the docks near the Deland Marina have been picking up some rainbows and remnant coho. Spawn and skein under a bobber have been effective, as have crank baits in blue, red, and white. On the Sheboygan River, anglers fishing the River Wildlife area below the Kohler dam have caught some steelhead and browns. Nymphs, streamers, and egg imitations have all taken fish. Pigeon River anglers fishing near the mouth have found some sizeable northern pike and smaller steelhead. Fly fishing with egg imitations has produced the most fish. Both fish cleaning stations in Sheboygan are now closed.
Ozaukee County - Port Washington anglers fishing the harbor have been catching a few browns and rainbows near the power plant. Skein and spawn sacs have both been effective. The fish cleaning station near the marina and the one near Coal Dock Park are both closed for the season.

Milwaukee River anglers are showing up in numbers in Estabrook and Kletzsch Parks, and some continue to work near the UWM Park and Ride lot and around North Avenue. Numbers of brown trout are increasing as the salmon taper off. Bright orange or green yarn or flies have produced.

A few fish have also been caught off the Reichert Count fishing pier recently, including a 37 inch northern pike and a 10 pound brown trout. Water levels remain low on the Root River in Racine, and fishing pressure has been generally low all over the river. Egg sucking leeches and other flies have produced a few coho and browns. Fish were processed at the Root River Steelhead Facility for the last time on Monday, Nov. 3. More than 1.1 million coho eggs were collected from the Root River this fall, and a total of 2,199 chinook and 1,374 coho salmon and 192 brown and 11 rainbow trout were captured throughout the season. Some sections of stop logs have been removed from the dam, so fish now have free passage up and down around the weir.
