The Regional Guide 2017/2018 - 4

Fishing the Menominee River and surrounding

area has been my favorite hot spot for over 25
years. The Bay of Green Bay out of Marinette has
so much to offer. With the centralized location,
you can go in any direction and find plentiful
numbers of your favorite freshwater species. If
you like to target "Old Marble Eyes" like myself,
this area has everything trophy big water walleyes
need. Every year people travel hundreds of miles
to fish for these Walleye in hopes of catching a
trophy of a lifetime.
In the early spring, these trophy females hit the
river along with miles of shoreline north and south
of the river to spawn. After they spawn, the

walleye hang tight to the shoreline, usually in less
than 8 feet of water. The reason for this is
because the water temperature is a little warmer,
which also attracts plenty of feed and forage for
these hungry fish. The shoreline bite will usually
last about 6-8 weeks after ice-out. Don't be
surprised if you hook into a nice Brown Trout,
Northern Pike, or Smallmouth Bass while trolling,
casting or jigging for these trophy Walleye. As the
water warms up and the fish move out deeper,
this area also has plenty of weed beds, rock piles,
and offshore reefs to hold plenty of walleye from
early spring to late fall.

Mid-Summer this area also offers great deep water Salmon and
Brown Trout fishing. The Bay of Green Bay is also known for Big
Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Trophy Muskies, Catfish,
Perch, and Whitefish.
Marinette and Menominee offers newly remolded boat
launches with fish cleaning stations for your convenience. Full
service marinas with boat slips and all the amenities a boater
could ask for. The area also has very nice campgrounds on the
water. Not to mention great eating establishments that will have
you coming back for more. This is one fishing paradise you don't
want to overlook. Make this area your next vacation hot spot.
