Southeast Region: This recent cold snap has Southeast Wisconsin area tributaries starting to freeze over, but local harbors still have some open and fishable water. Brown trout and rainbow trout are drawn to the rivers and harbors this time of year and can provide good fishing action.
Sheboygan County - In Sheboygan stretches of the Sheboygan River below the Kohler dam should still have open water.
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.
Milwaukee County - In Milwaukee shoreline anglers near the Summerfest grounds have been taking a few browns here and there. The river mouth and harbor have no ice cover yet. The fishing pier at the Oak Creek Power Plant is closed for the winter months, and it is scheduled to reopen on March 15.
Racine County - In Racine the harbor in Reefpoint Marina is starting to freeze over, but there are aerators running near the docks, which is keeping some water open. Anglers fishing in Reefpoint have been catching a few browns on skein, spawn sacs, and white tube jigs fished under slip bobbers. Slow moving stretches of the Root River are iced over, but there is open water below the Horlick dam as well as below the Main Street bridge.
