Milwaukee Fishing Salmon Reports 5/25/2010

By Capt. Jim Hirt

In May all anglers are catching fish. You will find Coho, Chinook, Rainbow and Lake Trout steady and predictable. A combination of Chinooks and Coho are filling the box up quickly. Let me tell you where and what to use. To see my video fish report go to

For Coho you can't go wrong with 6-inch orange flashers and dodgers with blue or green small flies. Spoons in most sizes in green and yellow with glow paint has been also working well. My best fly for Coho has been the Aqua Johnny fly. The Reaper Magnum Peacock spoon in regular or magnum is the answer for anglers that do not do well with flashers and flies.

For Chinook a spoon presentation of any size in green glow or blue/green on silver will get the job done. The Reaper Fish Fry from Badger Tackle is providing steady action.

Coho are south of the main gap in 90 to 110 feet of water in the top 45 feet. Chinook are in the same area with a deeper presentation of 45 to 60 down on downriggers 60 feet behind the ball

The boat speed of 1.9 to 2.2 gave the best results. Vulcans, Nestor Wobblers and Reapers are sold only on the web at Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!
