Kings And Chrome Of Autumn

Looking for a new angling adventure this fall? Consider fishing the respectable runs of king salmon and steelhead that migrate from Lake Michigan upstream into the Sheboygan River near Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Fast-Forward 2 Fall: Kings and Chrome on WI’s Sheboygan River. September through November are optimal, although steelhead fishing can persist through winter, as well as your shot at large brown trout.

Definitely plan a long weekend. For more information, contact local guides Wolf Pack Adventures or (920) 918-WOLF.
