Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for April 21, 2016

1 post in this topic

Timely rain this week has brought a reprieve, at least temporarily, to the high to very high fire danger the state had been experiencing last weekend and early this week. Burning permits were periodically suspended in numerous counties. In the past week, 123 wildfires burned 142 acres in DNR protection areas around the state. This is wildfire prevention week and to mark the event DNR launched a new "live status wildfire occurrence" map on the DNR page. Despite the rain, many parks and forests are now reporting that mountain bike and even some horse trails are open for use but additional rain in the forecast could change that status, so as always call ahead to confirm that trails are open.Ice is now off almost all but the largest lakes in the Northwoods, with some ice still reported on Trout Lake in Vilas County. The walleye spawning season has been going very quickly and the musky are just now beginning to show up in the shallows. Perch also are in the midst of their spawning ritual. Angling pressure on northern lakes has been generally light, with just a few sucker and panfish anglers out trying their luck.
