Statewide Fishing Report
Well things are definitely changing and it seems like somedays you gotta stick with the summer patterns and others you have to switch up to fall techniques. Either way it won't be long and the pendelum will swing to the fall fishing patterns.
CO Weekly Report
9-28-15- CO Chris Vinton (Perham) patrolled the station scouting for ducks prior to the state duck season opener. Very few ducks were located, though the wild rice crop was still very thick and locating ducks was difficult. The duck opener saw lots of hunters and surprisingly lots of ducks. All hunters contacted had ducks, mostly teal and wood ducks making up most of the bag. Mallard and even a few red heads were seen. Most common violation was an unsigned federal stamp. Even though most federal stamps were purchased through the ELS system hunters need to remember to sign their stamps in ink.
Fishing & Hunting Weekly Report
10-4-15-Musky, walleye and panfish hitting strong, as bear season starts to wrap up and archery deer season coming into full swing; all in and amidst the lakes and the Wisconsin River in Wisconsin’s Marathon and Lincoln Counties (near Mosinee and Wausau).
DNR Outdoor Weekly Report
10-1-15-Archers are moving afield with the cooler temperature and hickory nuts are starting to fall. The first scrapes and rubs are being reported by hunters in southern Wisconsin. Recent rainfall has helped bolster low water levels before the northern duck season opener and with the southern zone opening this weekend, an increase of wood ducks and blue-winged teal has been noted.
