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 ...

    Steve Suman More “winter-like” weather returns to the Hayward area this week when we get the full mix of snow, wind and subzero low temperatures. Cold and snow – in that order – could improve ice conditions for anglers and snowmobilers, and the snow will greatly enhance the (heavily used this past weekend) snowmobile and cr...

    Once again our area missed the heavy snow that was predicted, a narrow band of only 4-5” when both east and west of our area got 9-10” last Tuesday. Also the snow was light and dry. High winds pushed most of it off the lakes, maintaining good travel for A.T.V’s as well as snowmobiles and some truck travel where ice thickness allow...

    A second weekend in a row of fishing success not meeting the expectations of us anglers, what with all the great weather we had. Warm temps cresting 40 degrees, a little sunshine, made for a great time to be on the ice., just not as much under the ice. Reports from Fri / Sat were slow, with things picking up by Sun/ Monday as the fishing...

    Steve Suman Sunshine and temperatures in the 40s (some recorded 50s!) last weekend brought thoughts of spring. This week’s forecast, with single-digit lows, 20-degree highs, and snow, should quickly bring back the reality of winter. “The bite is good for all species,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “with panfish leading th...

    Ice conditions in Central Wisconsin range from 7 to 16 inches depending on the body of water you are fishing.  With flowages and the river system you can never be too cautious when it comes to ice conditions.

    By John Luthens I was forty feet above Sauk Creek, on the fringes of Port Washington, Wisconsin. It was shaping up to be a perfect, January stalk. The rocky banks were snow covered and the water swirled through ice flows below. The only tracks winding to the water below were made by deer and coyotes. I was working above a deep pool that I hoped mi...

    Steve Suman The Hayward forecast shows moderate temperatures this week, with highs and lows primarily in the 20s and 30s. The trade-off is a chance of snow every day, though so far not much for accumulation. We have plenty of good ice and decent snow cover, so all winter recreation is a “go” at this time. “Severe cold the past c...
