Wisconsin Travel: Fishing – WTMJ

Wisconsin’s inland lakes, streams, and rivers and the Great Lakes offer plenty of ways to get involved in fishing this summer. Here’s how to make your way across Wisconsin one bite at a time.

Catch trout in world-class driftless streams (Richland boycott)

Discover tranquil trout fishing in Richland County creeks. You’ll be dazzled by the world-class cool-water trout streams in this area of ​​the Driftless.

Plan your trip around the center of Richland, which is surrounded by 267 miles of Class 1 and Class 2 trout streams. Some of the best creeks to try are Pine River, Mill Creek, and Willow Creek. They twist and turn through the quiet countryside. The area produces so good trout that DNR uses fish from all over the center of Richland to stock other streams through Wisconsin.

You can stay in the Richland Center area by renting one of the properties offered by Ridge & Valley Hospitality. She operates two unique homes for short-term rental that are available on sites such as Airbnb. One of them is carefully designed, and is inspired by the Scandinavian style. It is a relaxing space perfect for couples and features a walnut wood sauna to relax in. The other property is a guest suite set within a charming, modern farmhouse just outside Richland Centre.

Visit Turtle Flambeau Flowage Fishing for walleye is excellent (iron boycott)

The Turtle Flambeau flow defines the perfect Northwoods fishing trip. This massive body of water was formed in Iron County nearly a century ago. A dam downstream created a 14,000-acre reservoir. Hundreds of islands now dot the riverbed, surrounded by miles of wooded beaches.

Anglers dream of catching walleye in Turtle Flambeau Flowage. The abundance of large walleye is fantastic, which is a big reason people make the trip. The flow is also home to championship-worthy muskrat, smallmouth bass, and other species.

Once you’ve filled your cooler with fish, head to Deadhorse Lodge in Mercer. Thelakeside Resort promises rugged luxury in the heart of the Northwoods. You’ll stay in spacious and comfortable cabins that have all the comforts of home, including kitchens for preparing fresh fish. Relax in the evening by relaxing in one of Deadhorse Lodge’s fire pits.

Book a Door County fishing charter adventure

Many visitors travel to Door County to sample the famous cherries and wines. Being a peninsula, the province also provides another way to pick up your ingredients by going fishing for charter fish! You can book your fishing adventure with the Wacky Walleye Guide Service.

The guide based in Door County leads several trips on the Green Bay and Lake Michigan side of the Peninsula. Angle for walleye and smallmouth bass in the summer and fall months. Then come back in winter on a guided ice fishing trip to catch whitefish on Lake Michigan.

When you’re in Door County, you need to add another quintessential fishing experience to your itinerary – Boil the Fish! The one-pot meal of potatoes, onions and whitefish cooked over an open fire is a tradition rooted in Scandinavian heritage. You will be amazed when the boiling master lights a huge flame to burn the brine in the pot.

Several Door County restaurants impress visitors – and their stomachs – with fish boil, including Old Post Office Restaurant, Waterfront Mary’s Bar & Grill and The Log Den.
