Conditions : Southeast Region: Sheboygan County - Fishing pressure was higher this week as temperatures warmed and weather conditions improved. However, anglers were still reporting little success off the piers, with most of the catches coming from boats. Only one catch of rainbow trout was reported off the south pier on Thursday, July 6th. Most anglers were using alewives fished on the bottom, although the rainbow trout was caught on a green and silver spoon. The surface temperature of the water on the harbor side warmed to 60 to 65 degrees by the weekend, while the water on the lakeside remained cold at 45 degrees. Boaters reported some success throughout the week; however, fishing remains inconsistent as several boats still returned to the ramp without any catches. Mainly caught coho salmon and rainbow trout were caught, along with some chinook salmon and five lake trout. The coho salmon weighed anywhere from three to six and a half pounds, which was similar to the average weight range of the rainbow trout - 3 to 7.5 pounds; the largest rainbow trout weighed 15 pounds. The chinook salmon were significantly larger than the coho salmon or the rainbow trout, with weights ranging from 10 to 24 pounds. Fish were caught in water depths ranging from 20 to 210 feet on spoons and flies. Boaters caught three coho salmon, two chinook salmon, and three rainbow trout in 50-60 feet of water on spoons and flasher flies. The coho salmon weighed an average of about 6 pounds. Two of the three rainbow trout were of similar weights to the coho salmon, while the largest weighed 10 pounds. One of the chinook salmon also weighed 10 pounds, with the second reaching 16.5 pounds.

Ozaukee County - Fishing pressure was relatively higher this week compared to previous weeks. More success has been reported off the piers, although reports of catches from boaters remain inconsistent. From Port Washington, mainly whitefish were caught off the north pier this week, along with some coho salmon, one rainbow trout, and one brown trout. A couple of brown trout and rainbow trout were also caught off the harbor and shoreline area near the south pier. The whitefish had an average weight of three to four pounds, with the largest weighing just less than eight pounds. Weights of the coho salmon ranged from about three to eight pounds, while the rainbow trout were a bit larger with an average weight of 10.5 pounds. Most anglers were using alewives and spoons, although a few were using jigs and spinners as well. The surface temperature of the water remained cold throughout the week at 45 degrees. Success reported from boaters was hit or miss, with some having caught several fish while others returned to the ramp with none. Mainly rainbow trout and coho salmon were caught this weekend, along with a couple of chinook salmon and lake trout. Weights of the rainbow trout ranged from about four to nine pounds. Catches were reportedly made at depths ranging from 35 to 190 feet on spoons and flies.

Anglers reported catching fish from 50 feet out to 160 feet of water. Steelhead, lake trout, brown trout, coho and king salmon were all reported caught. No specific lures or colors seemed to work best, but most anglers caught fish from 40 feet down up to near the surface. The water temperature at the surface at 70 feet was 59 degrees. At the pier, one brown trout and one coho salmon were reported caught this week. The brown trout was caught on a blue and chrome spoon and the coho salmon was caught by an angler that was perch fishing with fathead minnows under a bobber. The water temperature was 63 degrees.
