Conditions : Southeast Region: Milwaukee County - Perch season on Lake Michigan and its tributaries is now closed and will reopen June 16. The fishing cleaning station located at McKinley is now open for anglers throughout the season. Anglers targeting brown trout and coho salmon out of the McKinley Ramp found success in 20-30 feet of water using a variety of spoons. The occasional small lake trout was also caught, in deeper water ,also using spoons. With the changes in winds coming from the north-northeast with gusts up to 25 mph by Sunday afternoon, little to no action continues for anglers targeting salmon and trout both on the lakeside and harborside of the McKinley pier. Shoreline anglers targeting brown trout were observed by the Summerfest grounds( near the lighthouse), Lakeshore State Park and McKinley Shore, with little success using crank baits, spoons, artificial lures or minnows. Milwaukee River water temperatures range between 60- 62 degrees. Water levels and flow are slightly higher than normal with lower water clarity. Anglers are still seeing a few steelhead, and very few being caught throughout the river system. Smallmouth bass in Estabrook and Kletsch Parks continue to be caught by anglers using a variety of artificial lures and live bait. These bass continue to be undersize and are returned back to the water. The Menomonee River continues to have fishing pressure with most anglers gaining access through Miller Parkway and Three Bridges. Water levels and flow are higher than normal and water continues to be clear with temperatures ranging between 60-63 degrees. Very few steelhead are being seen or caught throughout the river system at this time. South Metro Pier, is now open to anglers until October. Fishing access and the parking lot located in Oak Creek off of 5th Avenue. Fish generally caught at this location include salmon, steelhead, and brown trout. The fish cleaning station at South Shore is now open for angler use. Very low fishing pressure occurred throughout the weekend from Jones Island through South Shore and the few brown that were caught were around the Old Jones Island, using a variety of baits. Low fishing pressure continues for anglers targeting brown trout or steelhead along Grant Park Shoreline and the mouth of Oak Creek. Oak Creek water levels and flow have remained low in this water system with clear waters temperatures at about 60 degrees. Through the weekend, with high fishing pressure, anglers, mostly fly fisherman, found very little success, catching mostly white suckers. Those anglers lucky enough to land the last remaining steelhead did so with spawn.
