Wisconsin Inland Trout Season Now Closed

A reminder to all who love to pursue trout on the thousands of beautiful miles of trout streams in Wisconsin. The trout season closed yesterday, September 30th. Early catch and release barbless season will re-open on the first Saturday in May. Early season trout fishing is, in my opinion, some of the best trout fishing you will experience in Wisconsin. The trout are eager, the bugs are non existent, and the spring sun on your back for the first time can certainly make you forget those winter blues.

My favorite spring fishing rivers include the Kinnickinnic River in River Falls, Wisconsin. The trout in this river are largely naturally reproducing, and have great color. The fly rod and small elk hair caddis flies will take fish, such as the one photographed above.

Another favorite is the Willow River in Hudson Wisconsin, I have taken large Brown trout, large Rainbow Trout, and brook trout up to 12" long all in one fishing trip before on this river. This great state is an angler's paradise, it really is.
