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 ...

    What a great week in the outdoors in central Wisconsin.  We have had some outstanding fishing trips followed up by another very successful bear hunt.  Fishing has been very good for all species this past week with several nice catches with mixed bags of walleyes, crappies, white bass and catfish. Water temperatures are in the mid 60&rs...

    The Lake Michigan and Green Bay Outdoor Report webpage has been updated with the latest fishing information for Kewaunee, Door, Oconto, and Marinette Counties.  The Root River report webpage has also been updated.  The Root River weir is not yet running, but it will be as soon as there is more water in the river and cooler water temperatu...

    9/1/16 - Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service Musky fishing around Washburn County has really been picking up this past week, we've been catching lots of nice sized fish across the area.  Muskies are hitting a wide range of baits, topwaters, bucktails, and minnow baits have worked best for us recently.  Most fish are ...

    Steve Suman Conflicting weather forecasts (there’s a shocker!) show sunshine very early in the week, followed by chances of showers nearly every day thereafter. Mild temperatures hold steady, however, and continue through the weekend. The fall season is far too good and far too short, so do not allow a bit of “inclement weather” ...

    By most reports, this September has not been a typical September.  Very high water and above average surface temps could be the culprit.  What is usually a great month for walleye, crappie, bass and the start of the musky fall bite has fallen well short of expectations.  Still 10 days to go, but, without a major change in weather or ...
  • 9/21/2016 8:20:00 AM
    Cooler temperatures this week have led to water temperatures dropping to the mid 60 degree range which has in turn increased fishing activity.  Bear hunters are also finding the cooler temperatures more seasonable and welcoming when heading out to the woods.  The 2016 Wisconsin Archery season also begins this weekend with many archers tak...

    Overall, the fishing on Lake Geneva remains a bit slow.  The warm water this summer has made the fishing a lot slower than typical for this time of year.  The lake has seen less pressure with the kids back to school.  As the water cools the fishing should improve greatly.  The best bite remains the largemouth bass. The largemou...

    Most of the past week, the heat has been above average and the lake temperature has been 4-5 degrees higher than normal for this time of year, this is also making the fishing a bit slower than normal for this time of year.  The overall size of the fish has been relatively small but there are still some great  numbers. Largemouth bass hav...

    Steve Suman   Showers and thunderstorms moved through the area early in the weekend, but Sunday brought mild temperatures and sunny skies. This week will be a mix of rain, sunshine, and moderate temperatures. It is starting to feel (and in some areas look) like fall in the North Woods!   “Falling water temperatures are slowly ch...

    September 5, 2016 Hayward Lakes Area Outdoor Report Steve Suman   September’s start looks to be a continuation of August and the past summer, with far too many chances for rain and thunderstorms throughout this week. Keep in mind those are NOT guarantees! On the optimistic side, it appears rain chances dwindle after mid-week, with su...

    9/9/2016- Reported by AAA Sports    The cooler weather is when the true fishing enthusiast get out on the water. The lazy days of summer are over. Fish are moving more as they water temps start to lower. This makes them more of a challenge as they're probably not where you been finding  them all summer. For ...

    It has been another fantastic week for outdoor activities in the central Wisconsin area.  We didn’t have much time for fishing this past week with the start of the 2016 bear season under way as we have been very busy in the woods baiting and prepping for the hunt.  This year our prepping and scouting payed off big time with 3 nice b...

    It has been another really good week for fishing in the central Wisconsin area.  Water temperatures are in the upper 60’s to low 70”s and the action has been very good for all species. Walleyes continue to be very active early and late in the day. We have been finding most of our fish by working a jig and minnow or a jig and crawl...

    9/1/16 - Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service Fishing has been great all across Washburn County this week, walleyes, pike, bass, panfish and Muskies have all been bitting. Weeds are the place to be if your looking to get bit right now.  A nice early morning jig bite is producing lots of fish in my boat, sun up 'till about&nbs...

    A combination of weather and time helped to pull the fishing up a bit by weeks end.  With some shallow weeds showing signs of dying back (despite surface temps averaging 70-72), a shift to deeper weeds has been the focus for fish and anglers alike.  Those deeper weeds of 13-16’ are holding a lot of species (Walleye, LMB, SMG and gil...

    With the cooler temperatures the fishing has been improving.  The boat traffic has been substantially less as the back to school rush happens.  This reduction in boat traffic gives anglers opportunities to fish throughout the day. Largemouth bass fishing has been excellent on the hard bottom locations throughout the lake.  My favori...

    Steve Suman Once we make/made it through Monday, it looks to be a nice week ahead... until Labor Day weekend, when chances for thunderstorms return.
