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!

We enjoyed our half day of fishing - I particularly liked how we were able to grab poles when fish bit unlike my last trip where only the first mate could touch poles until he handed them to the customers. We caught a lot of fish - Captain cleaned them on the way back in. Would recommend this boat and captain to others.

Most of our party consisted of new salmon fishermen. Shane was great at explaining the process and techniques we were using to attract and and catch the fish. He put us on plenty of fish during a tough time of year for salmon and stealhead. Overall, we all had a fantastic experience with Salmon Chaser Charters!

We spent our 20 year anniversary date with Feelin Fishy. Capt. Jeff was a great guide. He was knowledgeable on the Lake Michigan,where the fish hide out and even took pics for us. We would recommend his guide service to anyone who like small private fishing trips. We hope to go back next year. Thank you Capt. Jeff for a great experience.

Three Buddies from Morristown, New Jersey make large catches on Lake Michigan near Kenosha, Wisconsin. One King Salmon, one Giant Steelhead and two large Cohos. We all had a great time. Morning sun was great. Captain Jim provided excellent ship and cabin, excellent rod and reel sets, excellent conversation, excellent fishing locations, cut and clean fish. We look forward to future bookings with Captain Jim and Great Lake Adventures.

I had the opportunity to take my two sons out for their first charter fishing trip today and it didn't disappoint. Captain Shane got us on fish right away and we landed some nice King Salmon. We would highly recommend the Salmon Chaser for your next charter and look forward to returning. Thanks for making our first trip out memorable. John, Caleb, and Carson

Jeff did an excellent job. He changed our times to match more of the bite. Started out good, bite slowed a bit, but ended good. Total of eight fish in the boat. It was well worth the money. Very reasonable price compared to others I looked at. I would definitely do it again and again if I could afford it. He worked at getting a bite, then worked even harder when the bite was on. Well worth the price.

Booked a half day AM trip with Captain Jeff for 2 adults and 2 kids. We got out on the water early and were on the fish early. Captain and crew were great and getting lines in the water so that we can start reelin them in. It was a great morning and the crew was great with my kids. We found lots of fish and everyone had a great time. Would not hesitate to book with Feelin Fishy and Captain Jeff again.
