I agree with u jvog33. There are some very good trout streams in the sands area. been fishing the driftless region once last year. Will admit it was trout heaven. But the same token some of us cant drive almost three hrs to go trout fishing all the time. Plus the thrill of exploring and getting one in a 660 to 70 mile radius is just as fun and can be productive.

troutman,

No, it's not. A landowner should be cited for, "Obstruction of Navigation" unless the barbed wire is there for a cattle run or cattle watering.

You can catch trout about an hour from Green Bay. If you give it an hour and fifteen you can hit up a lot of the Sand County Area Streams (Portage County,Waupaca County,etc) which is supposed to be some of the best trout waters in the state. I just got into Trout fishing last year and with the help of the DNR website (very very helpful actually), purchasing/renting (from library)books I was good to go.

With that being said I dont think anything around Green Bay will touch the Driftless Area. That is suppose to be some of the best fishing in the whole nation!!

While I agree that the Driftless region is the best trout fishery in the state, I still don't think it is fair to trash the Green Bay area. I have had 30-40 fish afternoons within an hour of GB, just like I have had on the Timber Coulee and other streams of the driftless. The GB area also has the added benefit of sea-run trout and salmon. Both have their perks, I'm happy when I am fishing either of them!

To used to the Driftless to call anything within 1 hour of GB decent fishing.

Is stretching barb wire across a stream even legal?

I severely beg to differ vrmthnt. Should do a little more exploring apparently. Or maybe trout are too elusive for ya? This 17" brown was caught within a hour drive from my house in gb!

Muskiemania, There is no place within an hour of Green Bay to trout fish early season. All going to be froze. You could try the Oconto at Stiles, or the Kewaunee.

Doesnt look like we will be stream fishing March 7 (Early Season opener) unless it involves drilling a hole through ice. At least anywhere with in an hour of Green Bay.

The south branch of Wilson Creek, south of HWY-12, near Knapp, is a beautiful stretch of crystal clear water that holds some beautiful brookies. The landowners are super cranky though and have strung barbed wire across the stream in multiple places and I'm not talking about cattle crossings.

It will be a bit of a drive for you if you're out of Eau Claire, but if you go to the confluence of Parker Creek with the Kinni in St. Croix county (south of Steeple Drive) and head south from this confluence there is some deep holes lined with aquatic vegetation that hold monster Browns. I caught a 19" brown in there last summer, bright yellow.

The South Fork of the Hay River between Connorsville and Boyceville supposedly holds some monster Brookies as well but I've never caught anything over 12" and frequent flooding can make it it a pain to fish.

Does anyone know of any decent Trout streams in the Dunn/Eau Claire area? Not looking for hot spots just trying to find streams that actually hold fish in them. Will be more than happy to exchange some info on Iowa/Portage county streams in return. Any info would be much appreciated.
