Green Bay Wisconsin Fishing Report

Green Bay Fishing Report:

Brown Co.
Fox River: Musky fishing has been slow during the past week. Most anglers have been trolling crank baits in the lower bay or Fox River. Walleye fishing has been good with numbers of fish being caught up by the dam. Anglers have been casting crank baits at night or jigging the river channel during the day for best results.
East Shore
Little Sturgeon Bay: A few perch are being caught on minnows in 10 feet of water or less. A few Musky fishermen ventured out this week; all, however, reported fishing being on the slow side with only a few follows during a full day on the water. Walleye fishing has been spotty with most anglers trolling around Larsonís Reef at night with some success. Chaudoir's Dock: Perch fishing has been good for most of the week with anglers catching good numbers of fish in 20 feet of water. Most perch caught have been of respectable size. Bayshore Park: Perch fishing was very good the last week with anglers catching limits of large perch. Anglers have had the best success with a minnow for bait; most anglers have been rigging them on the standard bottom rig. Anglers are reporting catching good numbers of whitefish as well. Low light conditions have been the best time to target them.
Oconto Co.
Water temperatures at the landings are in the mid to upper 40's with fishing pressure heavy in places due to some fine catches of perch. Bluegill and crappie are still the main attraction at the Stiles Dam. Slip bobbers and leaf worms or minnows are working best. Some salmon and browns are also being caught from the mouth of the Oconto River up to the Dam. Look for rock and gravel areas suitable for spawning. Fishermen are using spoons, Rap's, and drifting crawlers. Perch and bluegill are also biting in the Pensaukee river; drifting live bait have been producing some nice fish. Oconto Breakwater Park, the Municipal Landing, and Oconto Park II fishermen are enjoying some nice catches of perch using minnows fished in a variety of ways; bring along some crawlers for a change of pace. The occasional trout are also being caught.
Marinette Co.
Water temperatures at the landings are in the mid to upper 40's with fishing pressure heavy in places due to some fine catches of perch. Panfish are being caught at the Dam in Peshtigo using live bait and bobbers or dead drifting from the Silver Bridge to the Dam. Casting spoons and Rap's have been producing some trout, salmon, and pike. Little River is still producing a few King Salmon using spawn fished on bottom. The Menominee River has a good population of Browns, Steelhead, and Walleye; try fishing from the Interstate Bridge to the Dam proper. Crawlers, spoons and Rap's should do the trick.
