The snow that fell across northwestern Wisconsin last week was all gone within a few days. Rain last week helped with green up, but there were still 51 wildfires in the last week that burned 82 acres, including a significant wildfire occurred in the Woodruff Area and burned approximately 40 acres. More rain is in the forecast but as of Thursday there was still high fire danger in the northeast and northwest.Wood violets blooming at Amnicon Falls State Park.Photo credit: DNRFish have been very active on Lake Superior. Fisherman are coming off the big lake with their bags full of a variety of species. Crappies are biting on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage and bass should be hitting hard this weekend. Inland trout fishing has been quite good in spots in central Wisconsin.Walleye runs on Lake Michigan tributaries have pretty much come to an end and fish have moved back out to the bay and most anglers have followed. Walleye fishing was slower along the west shore but anglers fishing out of Brown County were still reporting catching two to three fish. Fishing pressure was the highest of the year on the east shore with anglers fishing from Ellison Bay down to Sturgeon Bay. Those trolling for walleyes had a tough week but anglers jigging for walleyes managed to catch a few, with a few whitefish mixed in.
