Mourning Doves serve as door to new seasons Micah and I will walk again into a new hunting season this afternoon like we’ve walked together into eight Septembers before. Mourning doves are calling us now, more as a way to shake the dust off and welcome a new autumn than anything else. Later it will be more “serious” pursuits of pheasant and duck. Almost certainly, my brother John and his lab Dylan will join us again today as th...

    Anglers All reports:  Fishing continues to be good! Water temps are anywhere from the high 50's to the low 60's. With the cooler water temps now, the Trout and Salmon are beginning to stage off of the stream mouths with anglers using shallower running stick baits. We are now seeing Lake Run Browns moving into the tributary streams. We still ha...

    He swung the hook on which the two worms curled, dropping it gently to let the current take the line and baited hook beneath the bank. There was a heavy wildness of movement in the narrow, deep current, and the trout was torn out of the water…flopping in the air…sailing over Nick’s shoulder and tumbling into the ferns on the ban...

    By John Luthens The start of school lurked on the far edge of summer like a hungry beast. It had been nothing but a gentle puppy in June, but now, there it was: wildly grown in only three short months, yellow eyes glowing like a school bus with a fresh haircut on its shaggy mane and a backpack full of books between its meaty paws. It was chewing d...

    After the past few weeks of rather slow fishing, the overall bite on Delavan is starting to improve.  Most of the anglers are having success for most species, with the exception being Walleye which are still tough to find.  The boat traffic will remain heavy through Labor Day and then we typically see a drop off on week days.   ...

    Cooler temperatures have turned things around and the fall bite has started. Water temperatures are falling steadily and they are now in the low to mid 60’s.  The 2019 bear hunting season starts this upcoming week and from everything we have been seeing it looks like it is going to be another great year for our hunters. The walleye bi...

                Fishing on Lake Geneva has been really inconsistent for the past few days.  The cooler temps have affected the deep water bite for bass.  There is hot weather predicted in the coming days so that bite should become better in the week to come.  As Labor Day is fast approaching, I expect some o...

    Swamp watch? Yup, standing chest-high in April-chilled water was among the actions a team of current WDNR conservation wardens and retirees took to nab fish poachers on the Wolf River.

    The boat sat on top of a mass of weeds. In front of us was a strip of open water which overflowed the banks of this small lake, flooding the brush. My grandson, Max flipped a plastic worm into the small ribbon of open water. As his bait sunk the line twitched and Max pulled back to set the hook. The water exploded and then the fish dove for ...
