If you’re a freshwater fishing fan, a visit to the “Trout and Salmon Capital of Wisconsin” probably sounds like a dream. Want to turn it into a reality? All you need to do is head down to Lake Michigan’s southwestern shoreline, where you’ll find plenty of Kenosha fishing charters. This city boasts the highest catch-per-hour rate in Wisconsin, but don’t just take our word for it – come discover it for yourself!
 
Kenosha’s fishing opportunities begin and end with mighty Lake Michigan. The season opens in spring with Coho Salmon, but you can easily opt for a mixed bag of Cohos, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, and Steelhead at this time of year. As temperatures rise in summer, so does the number of fish! Large Coho and Chinook patrol the lake’s deeper waters, and Steelhead are biting hard. 
 
When fall arrives, spawning Coho Salmon gather in cool shallow waters. Lake Trout, Brownies, Chinook Salmon, and Steelhead can all be hooked within a mile from shore. In late fall, you’ll likely head to the lake’s deeper waters offshore to target Chinook, along with Steelhead and Lake Trout. No matter when you come to Kenosha, trolling is the most popular technique. It allows you to cover plenty of ground on the vast lake!
 
Local fishing guides can be found all along this city’s lakefront, offering a variety of trips. If you’re a newbie, opt for a shorter half day adventure. It’s the perfect introduction to fishing, Great Lakes-style. More experience under your belt? You can head out for a full day of fishing, and target some trophies.
 

Rules & Regulations

If you’re 16 or over, you’ll need to purchase a valid Wisconsin fishing license to cast a line in Kenosha. If you’re planning to target Trout or Salmon, you’ll also need a Great Lakes species stamp.

January

Celebrate the beginning of a new year by heading to Kenosha for Brown Trout. Even if they're a bit tricky to find, you can still enjoy fishing the shallow waters for a nice dose of Brownies. 

February

It's pretty quiet out on the water during February, as Kenosha's fishing season tends to kick off in late spring. Don't worry, though. Local guides and captains are getting their boats ready for the arrival of the season!

March

March usually heralds the start of Kenosha's fishing season. It's when Lake Michigan's waters are open for business! Your main targets will be feisty Coho Salmon. 

April

Enjoy a mid-spring morning or afternoon full of great fishing potential. Head to Kenosha Harbor and target Perch and Coho Salmon with spoons, jigs, or lures.

May

Head to Lake Michigan and you'll be able to target Coho Salmon, Perch, Chinook Salmon, Steelhead… even Lake Trout are around in May! Chinooks can reach up to 20 pounds during this month.

June

Summertime, and the fishing is easy. If you are still not on the water, then don’t waste any more of your time. Head to Kenosha and hop on a charter departing for Lake Michigan, where you'll find Salmon and Trout.

July

Mid-summer is the busiest month around in Kenosha. There are good numbers of Lake Trout, Coho Salmon, Chinook Salmon, and Steelhead out in Lake Michigan. 

August

August is the perfect time to head to the lake for Coho and Chinook Salmon. That's not all, either. Steelhead and Lake Trout are also lurking within its waters!

September

As the waters begin to cool down and the season approaches its end, you can still enjoy fishing on Lake Michigan. Salmon, especially spawning Coho and Chinooks, are here for the taking.

October

Kenosha is wrapping up its season, but you'll still be able to cast a line. Cohos, Lakers, and Brownies are available. King Salmon fishing is excellent on the lake this time of year, and Steelhead bite pretty steadily.

November

In November, check out Kenosha's Oak Creek area for fish that are on the move. If the lakes and harbors are covered in ice thick enough to fish from, don’t hesitate to try out ice fishing.

December

Kenosha Harbor is the right place to nail Brown Trout and bonus Northern Pike in winter. Enjoy a late December trip right before Christmas!

This is one of the best fishing trips I have been on. The boat captains were very nice, Helpful, prepared and knowledgeable. The boat was the most comfortable I’ve ever been on. Two comfy couches if you feel like relaxing for a bit and a bathroom. We caught some huge fish, had some great conversation, and an unforgettable time. Thank you 24 seven charters.

It was a cold, windy and the water was very waving this morning, but Capt. Tim and group hung in there and came up with every one, 6 of us catching some really nice large fish. Sorry I do not know how to add photo's but would love to share if I could. Hoping to do it again next year, but sooner in the summer not at the end. We still had a good time despite a couple challenges. Highly recommend !!!

I can't say enough about Captain Shane. We took our boys on their first fishing excursion in Lake Michigan and Captain Shane worked with them throughout the entire trip. He consistently put us in a prime location and the boys loved reeling in all the fish. We all had a blast and can't wait until our next trip! Thanks Captain Shane!

Great morning fish with Captain Harley. He put us on the fish before sunrise and we reeling in fish faster than he could get poles out. After daylight he switched tactics and pulled in 30lb King Salmon and a nice large Brown trout. Excellent day overall and everyone has plenty of fish to eat.

If you’re shopping for a charter. Stop the shop and book with 24/7 the best experience my boys and I ever had. Capt Harley really knows his waters. Other boats were calling him for advice.

Great experience, great fishing, Capt Tim is amazing. I highly recommend him if you want to go out on Lake Michigan. His years of experience showed effortlessly. He was coaching and teaching with every catch. I went out feeling like a rookie and left feeling like I’m ready for the pros. A must book!

Got this trip last minute after our other captain cancelled our trip. Rough water with 3-5 foot waves was interesting but after we got to deep water, we killed it. Shane knows his stuff and I would highly recommend him as a guide.
