Milwaukee River Lake Trout : October 2009

A number of posts on lake link lately seem to indicate a number of lake trout in the Milwaukee River system, this is rare, but happens. Some speculate that they follow the salmon up when the rivers run cold to feed on all the fresh salmon spawn. I agree, but imagine that when fish are on the move, fish of all species get mixed in, particularly salmonids.

Here are some of the photographs of the Lake Trout.

There was some argument on the site as to weather these fish are Splake, but from the photos I'm very positive they are not Splake (brook trout/lake trout), but lake trout.

It could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to land a big laker on the river, if you have the chance to get out and shoot for these fellows, I would strongly encourage it. See ya out there.
