    By John Luthens The Bois Brule River in the far reaches of northwestern Wisconsin, in the early months of spring, is naturally engineered to separate the casual fisherman from the fanatic. It’s true that the Brule steelhead trout come back up from the lake in spring to spawn.  They are some of the mightiest fish that an angler could ev...

    There was a slight improvement with the crappie fishing this past week. The fish were suspended 10-20 ft over thirty feet of water. 1/32 oz jigs tipped with hair caught the most fish.
