      Fantastic weather this past week has led to some outstanding fishing.  Anglers have been getting out on both open water and ice fishing and doing well in both situations.  Ice conditions remain favorable on most lakes, and areas below the dams on the Wisconsin River have been open with good access for fishing. With game-fish cl...

    March 12, 2018 Steve Suman   Spring is slowly moving into the North Woods, but there is plenty of time to experience additional “interesting” weather before it actually feels like spring is in for keeps.

    The 1998 was a truly unique season.  For starters, there was great concern about ice conditions leading up to the season.  From some of the other newspaper articles that I’ve read, it appears there was even outside pressure to cancel the season.  The 2018 spearing season marks the 11th season that I have worked for the DNR...

    Today we highlight the season of 40 years ago (1978).  For starters, the 1978 season only included a fishery on Lake Winnebago.  Water clarity coming into the season was good (average 14’ of clarity) and ice conditions allowed for safe travel. Thus, spearers were anxiously awaiting the season getting started. However, the largest sn...
