My Dad caught a 2-3 lb Brown trout today at the Diversey docks. He was using a jig & spikes for perch, which also seemed to be biting OK.

He heard that they caught 1 large Brown & 1 Coho at Belmont also. We're going to try Belmont tomorrow & I'll report back.

I was at Belmont today 3/15 and had no luck. I helped a the guy land about a 25lb brown at about 8:30am on a powerline. He then landed about a 10lb steelhead 2 hours later. He had a great day and most everyone got one small coho.

I was at Belmont today 3/15 and had no luck. I helped a guy land around a 25lb brown at about 8:30am on a powerline. He then landed about a 10lb steelhead 2 hours later when I was leaving. He had a great day and most everyone got at least one small coho.

Where do you generally fish at Belmont??? Closer to the "Recreation" Drive exit for LSD or closer to the Belmont exit? Or am I way off on both? I usually fish Montrose and Diversey so I am not too familiar with Belmont harbor.
Thanks,
Noel

I usually fish the Northeast end of the harbor on the lake side. I come from the north on LSD and exit at Irving Park. I follow Recration drive to the end. You will end up on the east side of Belmont harbor. There is parking, a pier, and the northeast end and lake side is easy to get to and fish. There is usually people out with powerlines and throwing lures.
