Milwaukee charter fishing has been solid over the last couple of weeks and consistent, with fish set up in 100 feet of water and a good thermocline to condense the fish in the water column. Lakers and Kings have been the bulk of the catch, with some Coho's and Rainbows now showing up. The water has begun to cool down over this weekend and the fish are on the move from again. We went 7 for 14, 5 for 6, 10 for 15, 10 for 15, 18 for 23, 11 for 14, 7 for 14, 16 for 20, 11 for 13, 9 for 13, 11 for 14, 11 for 14, 6 for 9 and 9 for 20. We had three 20 pound Lake trout and one 23 pound Chinook during this period.

Our best action came on riggers, with white flashers and Howie Bull Frog flies. We set them at 50, 65, 80 and one on the bottom for trout. This has not changed through this period and is what we like to see in summer a very consistent pattern. Our dipsies have been a challenge from day to day. We have set them anywhere from 125 to 250 feet on the line counter. With both green and white flashers. They usually take one to three fish a trip. The boards are also tough for us and we have used copper and lead, with spoons and flashers. The best is our 300 to 250 coppers, with spoons. But they kick in about one to three fish a trip. The riggers are top and take 80 percent of the fish. We have not ventured from 90 to 110 feet this whole time period.

Over the last couple of days strong south winds have cooled the water down and spread fish out again. The Kings getting ready to spawn have moved close to shore and the others out deep. But there is still good fishing to be had and weather we are fishing four year old Chinooks or Browns near shore or we are out deeper targeting Chinook, Lakers and Rainbows there is some real goo fishing to be had in September.

I've been fishing the harbor area now everyday for over a week. Same old story of catching some nice sized kings fishing in and out of the river water exiting the harbor. Cold lake water has brought these fish close to our shoreline. The weather has been changing several times a day lately making fishing the harbor a challenge at times. Despite the weather I've been consistently catching some good numbers of salmon as well as some brown trout. . I've been using a variety of spoons and plugs.
