Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

                With the cool nights, the water temperature hasn’t come up much.  It is very typical for this time of year.  The bluegills are shallow and the bass are cruising in 2-3 ft of water.             The best bluegill ...

    We have been on quite a roller coaster so far this spring and it doesn’t look like it is going to change anytime soon.  Weather conditions continue to fluctuate on a daily basis and that is creating perfect conditions for a long drawn out spawning season. With all the rain we have been receiving the water levels are remaining high a...

    The yo-yo weather has been a constant factor this past week, it looks like stable weather is coming this week which will help the fishing tremendously.  Water temps are in the low 50’s.  When the weather is stable the fishing has been relatively good.             Largemouth bas...

                    With the up and down temperatures the lake remains pretty cold which is causing some inconsistent fishing.  The best bite on the lake is perch and largemouth bass.  Stable weather is predicted and that will help turn on the smallmouth bass and blueg...
