      Editor note: As an avid fly fisherman, On Wisconsin Outdoor columnist Jerry Kiesow is a hard one to keep out of the river.  He submitted his first river report this week, more because he was in the area than due to any crazy idea that the run was on, or even that the ice was off.  See Jerry’s photos and some of his w...

    I admit it.  The unusual weather this year has driven me to seek warmer climes.  I debunked from Wisconsin and headed to Florida.  While the Midwest is gripped in brutal sub-zero wind chills and piles of snow, I’ve been enjoying mild temps and sunshine!  On one of my adventures here I spent an afternoon walking along one...

    Great action this past week as we come to the close of the 2013-2014 inland game fish season.  Good thing for us is that the waters we fish are basically never closed as they are almost all associated with or on the Wisconsin River. Walleye action has been very good for both numbers and size along with good catches of crappies, bluegi...
