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 ...

    Heavy rains have many rivers at or near flood stage Heavy rains across much of the state in the last week have almost all major river systems and some lakes at very high levels. The southwestern portion of the state received the heaviest rain, with areas of Grant County reporting up to 15 inches of rain in the last week. The Mississippi, Lower Wis...

    By Steve Suman Warm temperatures continue, with highs in the 80s until a slight cooling occurs late in the week, and the forecast again includes too many ‘good’ chances for showers. “As we move more into summer, fishing patterns are beginning to change,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “With most species having completed ...

    By John Luthens Somewhere due north of Rhinelander, Wisconsin in Oneida County, we hiked up Tower Ridge, swatting mosquitoes and kicking our way though green summer ferns and beneath the swaying canopy of endless trees. We scrambled to the top, pitching tents before the darkest clouds dropped through the pines. Thunder shook the ridge top and lig...

    It's the end of June and the Mayflies are hatching, This hasn't shut down fishing but it does make it a harder bite because the Panfish, Walleye and Bass are gorging themselves on the easy meal. We have been finding Walleye in 8 to 12 feet of water, A piece of Night Crawler on a floating lindy rig has been a good bet, Walleye are also being taken o...

    Overall fishing remains very good.  With the warmer weather the water temperature has been getting warmer as well.  The largemouth bass are becoming very active with the Jumbo bluegills. Largemouth bass have been actively feeding.  They can be caught in Williams Bay or in Trinkes.  They are biting on wacky rigged green pumpkin ...

    The boat traffic has been extreme the past week.  The word is out that the fish are biting.  You need to go early to get a good spot.  The fishing has been very good.  The best success has been bluegills and crappies. Crappie fishing has been very good for the suspended fish in 12 ft of water about 8 ft down.  The best loc...

    Summer finally arrives on the calendar and in the woods and waters of Wisconsin It finally looks summer has arrived and not just on the calendar, but in the woods and on the waters of Wisconsin. For the most part, the state has enjoyed sunnier, warmer days in the past week and more of the same is in the forecast. Events are really picking up at s...

    June 18 started with 38 degrees, so what’s new? Guess we shouldn’t be surprised, but a cold front with high pressure in the middle of June has backed water temperatures down into the low 60’s again.  Temps yo-yo up with the sun in the afternoon, but overall are down for this time of year. Smallmouth Bass:  Excellent &nd...

    By Steve Suman Constantly changing weather patterns make it difficult to know what to expect, but the ‘current’ forecast predicts a warm week with (too many) chances for rain. June is peak nesting time for turtles and they are on the move near rivers and wetlands. Watch for them crossing roads, and if safe to do so, move them to the s...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The backwaters of the Wisconsin River near Gotham are producing good crappie action. They have been biting on pink and white jigs fished during early morning or evening hours. Cloudy days with a little wind are the best. The trout streams are producing nice fish. The smaller streams are clear now and the trout are surfacing t...

    By, Dave Hraychuck Summer is finally here for more than 24 hours...the fish and fishermen are really happy about it! The crappies and bluegills are biting on all area lakes.

    Walleye fishing is picking up, Leeches and Crawlers are the bait of choice right now. Walleye are slipping back to their summer haunts, that's wood in 10 to 18 feet of water in the Phillips Chain. Weedless jigs, Floating Lindy Rigs, or slip bobbers work well for walleye at this time of year. Crappie are moving off the shorelines and are now being ...

    Delavan Lake fishing is very good right now.  The lake is productive on multiple species.  As summer starts to heat up, the lake is getting very busy.  Prepare to get to the lake early if you want to get a parking spot as well as a vacant fishing spot.  Even though the fishing pressure is high, there are still plenty of good bit...

    “OWO fishing expert Ron Klimcke reports another day of great fishing on the Chippewa Flowage.  “The bite was light and we had to move to several spots to catch our limit,” Ron said Saturday.  “A jig and minnow was all we used.  We caught these fish in in 17 to 21 feet of water.”

    Fishing remains fantastic on Lake Geneva.  Most of the fish are located between 10 and 15 ft of water.  With the warming water temperature the bait of choice has switched from fat head minnows to nightcrawlers. Smallmouth bass remain on the spawning flats in 12-15 ft of water.  Look for the fish by Elgin Club, Knollwood and the Mili...

    Lots of Good Bites Hi Folks – That long extended cold front held up pretty good, but the bite slowed up towards the end. Water temps dropped to the mid-50’s and fish got very touchy.  MUSKY have been very good as the cold front hit.  Last Thursday the musky action went through the roof.  This continued through the weeken...
