Opening Weekend Report: Fished a stream in the driftless region southwestern wisconsin on Sunday.  Got a late start and didn't start fishing until about 10.  Low water, bright sun, and opening weekend pressure didn't seem to slow us down! Caught an estimated 40 trout between my buddy and I in about 3 hours. All on spinners. Here's a GoPro video of some of the highlight footage.  I'm pretty proud of how it turned out so check it out! Hopefully it's some motivation to get out on the water and catch some of the most beautiful fish there that exist (in my opinion).

@Flagg - define central Wisconsin.  There's lots of good opportunities in Portage, Waupaca, Waushara, and Marquette Counties.

there is not alot of trout fishing in central wisconsin, but the praire river north of merrill is probably the closest and best bet. Good luck!

Hello, I moved up here from AR last year and now I'm trying to figure out fishing trout up here and where to find them. Would anyone happen to know any good locations for fly fish in the central WI area? Thanks.

Kayaked and waded for almost an hour to reach a spot nobody fishes. Just a 90 min from Milwaukee. Low trout population but mostly big fish. Caught just 6, had a nice rainbow around 22 inches break my line after a couple runs. Kept 2 -16 inch browns for the smoker. Its a spot I fish once every 2 years because its exhausting to get to. At least a dozen 20+ inch fish in that stretch of stream, Used Blue Fox vibrax in 1/16 oz

Fort McCoy has many lakes and streams stocked with trout that you can drive right up to. Your do need to purchase a Fort McCoy permit in addition to normal trout stamp and all. Taking my two grandsons out there this weekend.

Out today mid day for probably the last time before the general season opens. A LOT of walking before I found any fish that weren't on edge. I have a feeling that Someone was there this morning before I got there. Ended up with one brown about 10", lost 2 on dries. Spooked a big, mid 20s brown out of a laydown too. Small hatch of black caddis still going but they weren't keying on those, they were eating some tiny (26-2Cool mayflies. Didn't look like BWO, never caught one to know for sure but very pale in color. Waushara county

What are some of these drainage ditches they are stocking? I agree that some of the stocking techniques used in Wisconsin not just by the DNR but WFT too are questionable, but trout stocking in a drainage ditch seems far fetched. I fish a few tiny streams for trout up north that people don't think are worth it and I pull out some nice fish there that are naturally reproducing along with a few stocked trout.

The DNR continues to stock any 'trout water' regardless of its sustainability or fishability simply so they can keep their number of 'miles of trout water' as high as possible. It doesn't matter if the water is a drainage ditch that will dry up in July (as is the case more often than you'd think).
