Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for July 13, 2017

1 post in this topic

Recent rains across the regions have kept water levels above average and saturated swamps, forests and trails across the state. Torrential rains fell Wednesday in southeastern Wisconsin with as much as 8 inches reported in some areas. Many roads in Racine, Kenosha and Walworth counties were flooded and a State of Emergency has been declared in each county. The Fox River crested Thursday in Burlington at 16.1 feet, exceeding the previous high level set in 2008.While there have been no reports of park, forest or trails closing, visitors should be aware of recent rain conditions in areas they visit and check-in with local offices to see if your favorite trail may be waterlogged.With precipitation last weekend and this week, water levels around Lake Michigan have been fluctuating. In some instances they have been leveling off, while in other areas, such as the Door County Peninsula, they are rising to near record highs. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there are some sandbars available. Boaters should be aware though that recent rains may cause the river to rise again.
