Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for April 5, 2018

Recommended Posts

Winter is not letting up on Wisconsin, with Mother Nature playing an April Fool's joke on the state bringing just a couple inches of snow in the south to 10 or more inches in the north. The Brule River State Forest, Pattison State Park and the Turtle Flambeau Scenic Waters area groomed ski trails and report good conditions. All other properties have discontinued grooming and trails are open to multi-use including skiing, snowshoeing and on some properties fat biking. All snowmobile trails are closed for the season.Lakes Mendota and Monona opened last weekend. Some central Wisconsin lakes are completely open and others still have a good amount of ice, but the quality is poor and the shorelines are bad making access difficult. This was a snowy Fish Lake in Waushara County on March 31.Photo credit: Ben Mott, DNRThis was the same view of the lake April 3. Lakes are opening up through central Wisconsin.Photo credit: Ben Mott, DNRThe snow, cold temperatures and ice didn't deter opening day anglers for the spring steelhead fishing opener last Saturday on the Brule River. Angler numbers were good and there were reports of success. It also didn't stop Fox River anglers out to catch a trophy walleye as hundreds were fishing from boats and shore. Fishermen were also out after walleye on the lower Wisconsin River with some on and off action.
