    Steve Suman  The Hayward area experienced a good weekend of spring weather, but Monday brought a dose of reality with a 30-degree drop in temperature and a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and rain. However, there is no accumulation on the ground (so far!) Temperatures warm throughout the week, although we might still see some precipitation in the ...

    By John Luthens Another spring season glistens along the steelhead runs of Wisconsin. Spring wades gingerly up the steelhead backbones of Wisconsin’s Great Lakes tributaries. She is a temperamental lady and it is a chancy effort. The sun might push the thermometer to 70 degrees inland, but water rushes cold and the shoreline winds are raw...

    As we start into April the walleye fishing is really heating up, the turkeys are starting to strut, and winter is just about gone!

    April 3, 2017 Steve Suman Following a wet start, this week should provide somewhat mild temperatures and partly cloudy skies – and quite a warm-up during the weekend and into the following week.

    March 27, 2017 Steve Suman The Hayward area started this week with mild weather and it appears (according to current forecasts) that the entire week (or most parts of it) will be mild and sunny.
