hey jcjspringers, welcome to the board, glad you found us.
Hopefully you'll hook up with some of our members out your way. You might also be interested in checking out a local Trout Unlimited Chapter. There's a bunch of 'em in WI. Most chapters are pretty welcoming to new members, have group trips to local waters, and informative meetings. And it's a good way to make some new fishing buddies.

Looking forward to your posts, as a forester you're in a great position to find some great stretches of water. Hopefully you have room in the truck for a rod for "lunch breaks".
