Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for December 7, 2017

Recommended Posts

Temperatures have finally fallen, again and light snowfall also dusted many areas and some, like the Brule River State Forest, got almost half a foot this week. Forest crews were able to roll the ski trails but skiers will still have a while to wait before trails are groomed and ready. Across most of the rest of the state, cross-country ski trails are open to hikers and bikers until there is enough snow for grooming.Ice has reformed on some Northwoods lakes but those looking to get out on the ice are urged to use extreme caution, as much of the ice cover is only surface thick. Remember ice safety--always have a phone, a buddy, ice picks, and go slow while checking the ice depth in front of you. Until ice fishing really kicks in, a few anglers are still fishing on the Menominee River for whitefish, walleye and browns, and walleye fishing on the Wolf River has been hot, with anglers reporting great catches on the lower portions of the river.South Bay at Governor Thompson State Park is now frozen, but Caldron Falls still has open water. Ice conditions are not safe.Photo Credit: DNRMuzzleloader season wraps up this week and leads right into the statewide four-day antlerless only season from Dec. 7-10. This season provides an additional opportunity to fill an unused antlerless tag, but hunters must have a tag valid for the zone and land type they are hunting. All hunters must be wearing blaze orange this weekend. Archery remains open but that even bow hunters can fill only antlerless tags during the four-day season.
