I have only fished the mouth of the Root where it enters the Racine marina for Salmon in the fall. I would be interested in fishing for Pike there as well.

fishing the root river is like heaven reason is because most spots are only 15 inches deep holding most of the time 15lb salmon and you can get some 25lb ones in there if ur lucky lol and plus there are tons and tons and i mean tons of fish everywhere u look and especially after a good rain when the water drops back down there are fish all over that u bump into them in the water it is so fun battling them also

Sweet, root. Thanks. Now I have an excuse to get some waders. Information on where legal parking is would help a lot, too. If I'm up that way this weekend I might look it up on a map and take ride by.

http://www.fishinfatman.com/fat/RootMap.jpeg

this is a report but they dont keep it updated much http://dnr.wi.gov/fish/lakemich/rootriverreport.htm this site tends to update every week and fishing picks up often and they dont report it

this site is more accurate and it tells u the info straight from the people when u get to the site go to wisconsin then type in under the search in the middle of the page type in root river and it should come up
http://www.lake-link.com/fishreports/

and i love this site but they wont star their updates untill the fish start to hit http://www.ramblingreports.com/

let me know how u guys like theses sites

islandfisher when will u be going up ther next these next few weeks should be excellent for steelheading tons of fish will probably be seen and caught best bait would to be to drift all spawn under a bober and if the water is a little higher just go without the bobber
