Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for April 7, 2016

1 post in this topic

Cold weather and snow swept through the state within the last week. While the southern portion of the state dealt with an alternation of freezing rain and light flakes, some areas in the north have had as much as half a foot of wet snow. This has slowed everything from angling pressure to bird migrations. However, as a result of the weather, feeders are packed with sparrows, redpolls and, of course, squirrels. Trails across the region are still wet and muddy, with mountain bike trails remaining closed at most park and forest properties.While many water bodies have opened, larger Northwoods lakes have retained a complete covering of ice, bringing angling pressure in those areas to a standstill. Redhorse suckers are running on the Flambeau River. Walleye and suckers are up to the dams on the Oconto, Peshtigo, and Menominee rivers, with heavy concentrations of anglers fishing below the dams. Walleyes are partially spawned out on Wolf and Fox rivers and angler numbers have started to drop off but were still heavy on the weekend.
