Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for February 16, 2017

1 post in this topic

Warm weather has swung back around, putting winter back on its heels and bringing changes to the outdoors. Snowmobile trails now only remain open in about a dozen of the most northern counties, but are still being reported as fair to good on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-country ski trails in northern parks and forests were also in good condition this week but are now closed on many central and southern properties. With much warmer weather and some rain in the forecast this weekend and early next week conditions could deteriorate rapidly.Open water fishermen were seen this week on the Menominee River below the Hattie Street Dam trying for walleye and whitefish. A few open water anglers were casting spoons on the Fox River at Voyageur Park but success has been slow.On Green Bay, perch and whitefish were being caught in good numbers at Long Tail and Little Tail points, where a few walleye were also being caught. Along Door County, anglers were out in droves again this weekend around the Little Sturgeon and Sherwood areas, with most reporting a good bite for whitefish. Those fishing for perch had decent action in Sawyer Harbor. The shipping channel remains open from the bay shipyard to the lake.
