    Steve Suman Though not unusual for spring in the North Woods, the weather made quite a swing over the weekend, going from 70 degrees Saturday to the lower 30s Sunday morning. The temperature drop also brought along snow flurries, with some people saying they saw the largest snowflakes of their lives, though there was no accumulation. The forecast ...

    The walleye bite is central Wisconsin is very good right now with not only numbers but some very nice fish as well.  Water flows on the river systems are above average which increases the walleyes migration.  The water temperatures are in the low to mid 40 degree range which is about perfect for walleyes to spawn. We have been targetin...

    Fellow Sturgeon Enthusiasts: It's that time of the year again (mid-April) and some people are starting to question when the sturgeon will start spawning on the Wolf River and other tributaries to the Winnebago System.  Well, fish have been spawning since Tuesday on the upper Fox River from Eureka to Princeton.  The sturgeon run on the up...

    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...
