East Branch Milwaukee River - part 1

Updated: Mar 5, 2023

In this series I am explore the upper reaches of the Milwaukee River system. I go into tight and hidden parts of the East Branch of the Milwaukee River to see what I can catch. Smallmouth? Largemouth Bass? Rock Bass? Pike? Chubb?

I love exploring hidden or hard to get to parts of river systems. It’s as much about the discovery as it is about the catch. In this episode I get deep into the East Branch of The Milwaukee River with my fishing buddy Lee. We go in near New Fane, where it flows through the Kettle Moraine State Forest in Wisconsin, and hike through a lot of fall down to discover what we find.

Check out my full documentary on the the Milwaukee River.

Last year I kayaked and fished 80 miles of the main part of the Milwaukee River.
