So, turns out I have a bunch of vacation time to burn before winter. Kind of a 'use it or lose it' deal.

Thinking about some October fishing, and a trip to Sheboygan/Manitowoc/Kewanee might be on the list of options.

Anyone have any experience/insights on what I might find on an early to mid-October trip? Probably a bit late for Kings, but Cohos are possible? How about Steelhead or lake run browns?

Still kicking around ideas...so thanks for any info.

I talked to a guy on Saturday that heads out there every fall. He hasn't been out yet but said the rivers are running really high FWIW.

I fish the tribs for steelhead pretty good.
Right now the water is very high and very fast.

The temperature is also a tad high.

I check my spots every couple days.

When I see the first "reds" I will post.

I'd be willing to take you to my favorite spots.
I usually go during the week as I am a very old and frail retiree!

Man, way too much rain.
Rivers are very high, very fast and very dirty.
(I just can't say turbid!)

And the rut is about to kick in.

What to do?
