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 ...

    The fish are starting to come into their mid summer patterns.  The fish are moving deeper and are actively feeding.  The only problem has been the summer time boat traffic which has been excessive after 10 a.m. most days of the week. Smallmouth bass fishing is good if you can find the active school of feeding fish.  A few times last...

    I have distant but fond memories of being a Boy Scout. Now, in an older and supposedly wiser reality, I am still an active adult leader in our own local Boy Scout Troop. I believe there is inherent value in pitching a tent that will keep the rain out and building a fire that won’t burn down the forest. More importantly, there is value in prov...

    Fishing on Delavan continues to be very good.  The only limiting factor is an excess of anglers pursuing them.  With the difficult weather we’ve had, it has become clear that the days with rain & clouds have been producing the most action.  The walleye fishing has been the best it’s been in over 7 years, every trip I&...

    Lake Geneva is in its mid-summer transition from a shallow water bite to a deep water bite.  The thermocline has not yet formed and is still a few degrees a way for the deep water bite to be really hot. Largemouth bass fishing has been average in the 12-15 ft depth range.  Anglers are catching them either drop shotting or fishing Texas r...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler We have had quite a bit of rain lately and this has caused a slight slowdown in trout fishing.  I was fishing up to the headwaters and the fishing was excellent.  I was using a Panther Martin spinner that was green and white.  I had good luck using the larger spinners as the fish seemed very aggressive.  I...

    Steve Suman This could be a nice week, but it is difficult to tell by the forecasts! Temperatures warm through the week and every day shows “chances” of thunderstorms, but all less than 50 percent.

    It is shaping up to be a regular summer, finally.  Water temps are in the mid to upper 70’s (saw one lake hit 80 degrees on a warm Saturday).  The higher water temps are pushing some fish deeper, while making others more active. Largemouth Bass:  Very good.  The largemouth population continues to grow here in the Nor...

    Delavan Lake fishing has been very good.  With the holiday weekend and the nice weather, the fishing pressure has been extreme.  For the best success, you want to fish early in the day or after about 4 p.m.    The walleye fishing has been awesome which is unusual for this late in the summer. Walleye fishing has been excell...

    With the warmer weather, the patterns are starting to change.  The fish are starting to move to deeper water.  The thermocline is starting to form, however, the weather is cooler than normal so it may take some time to fully form. Northern Pike fishing has been spotty.  Most of the pike are being caught in 20-23 ft of water sporadic...
