Half day of fishing in the Milwaukee River in Milwaukee and the Root River in Racine. It was fun using the technique I learned for blueback herring last weekend (plain #14 bronze hooks jigged up and down near walls) to also catch alewife.
Alewife (Alosa pseudoharengus)

"Steelhead" Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) - Milwaukee version
Brown Trout (Salmo trutta)
Round Goby (Neogobius melanostomus)
"Steelhead" Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) - Racine version
Creek Chub (Semotilus atromaculatus)
Bluntnose Minnow (Pimephales notatus)
My two targets were alewife and trout-perch. No sign of the latter unfortunately, but I was still super stoked to get the alewife!
