Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for May 10, 2018

Recommended Posts

With sun and temperatures getting into the low 80s even in northern Wisconsin snow is now finally gone from the entire state. Ice went out on many lakes last weekend and went out this week on Trout Lake in Vilas County. Loons returned to the lakes as soon as the ice went out and could be heard calling once again.Recent rain helped green up the landscape and reduce very high fire danger. However, fire danger can change quickly so take care to prevent wildfires. Get a burning permit, know and follow the rule of the day by checking the fire danger levels. This past week 88 fires burned 156 acres in DNR Protection Areas, destroying 12 buildings. Another 30 were saved with firefighter assistance. May 14 marks the fifth anniversary of the Germann Road Fire that burned 7,442 acres and 100 buildings, including 22 homes and cabins, in Douglas CountyBloodroot is among the many wildflowers blooming in southern Wisconsin. Spring flowers are just beginning to emerge in the north.Photo credit: DNRHigh temperatures and full sun allowed many anglers to enjoy the fishing opener and arrive home with a suntan or sunburn. Many anglers were out on the Menominee, Peshtigo and Oconto rivers with mixed success. Anglers were out on Green Bay with some launches almost full during opener on Saturday. Most boats were catching three to five walleyes but some were harvesting limits. Anglers fishing the Fox River for white bass found themselves putting fewer than a dozen fish in the bucket.
