Springtime means fun time when open water river fishing competes with turkey hunting for our hours spent in Wisconsin’s great outdoors. Personally, we walleye fished the Wolf, leave this week for our gobbler hunt in southwest Wisconsin, and as a bonus took advantage of spring break to work the Gulf of Mexico for anything willing to snap up our shore offerings. We’re also receiving reports from successful turkey youth hunt participants...

Fishing Wisconsin

Thanks for fishing with On Wisconsin Outdoors and the Dick Ellis Experts. Wisconsin boasts two “Great Lakes”, 15,000 “Just Fabulous” lakes, and approximately 9,000 cold, clear, meandering trout streams stretching 13,175 miles. 5,400 of those miles are classified as Class 1 trout streams.

Check out our Great Lakes Fishing, Inland Fishing, Ice Fishing and Flyfishing sections right here.  Also don’t forget to learn what’s biting right now and where with our Outdoor Reports submitted by some of Wisconsin’s best guides and county reporters in our Explore Wisconsin section. 

Our writers are in the field catching fish and they want you there too. And our county partners like the local chambers of commerce and visitors bureaus who know their backyards like no one else are ready too to show you where to lodge and dine while you’re planning where to fish and play.

Welcome aboard.

2012 fishing calendar and an invitation to help make fishing even more fun

Hello -- The day we've all been waiting for is almost here -- opening day of the regular fishing season!  We hope you will use these new resources to help you plan your fishing trips:

Help us make fishing easier and more fun

These are just a few ways we're hoping to make fishing easier and more fun. We invite you to share your ideas at the annual spring hearings held April 9 at locations in every county.

We've been directed by Gov. Scott Walker to simplify fishing regulations and want to make sure we head in the right direction. We encourage you to come to the hearings and help us start the discussion. Weigh in on some big questions -- about year-round fishing, eliminating fish refuges, allowing motor trolling statewide and more. Find them starting on page 10 of the 2012 questionnaire on this web page. Also on April 9, you can give your own suggestions for simplifying fish regulations and for reducing barriers to getting more people to fish.

With your help, we want to make fishing even better in Wisconsin. Thanks, and hope to see you April 9 and out on the water.
