Default Question about WISCO

I just started fly fishing in Wisconsin (The St. Croix) area (as I am a college student at UWRF), I live literally two blocks from the Kinnickinic river, is that stream any good? and are their any other good streams or areas in my area?


Thanks, Nick P

I've heard specacular things about the kinny. I also have heard great things about the Rush river, not to far from you... mostly of the Rush's smaller feeders, like cave, and lost creek. I have never fished this area, but am anticipating this summer's adventuring which will hopefully bring me near. Check this out.

Nope not mine, just a really lucky stumble. I was wondering about that area as well, so I decided to look into the smaller stuff around you. Will enjoy hearing about what you find if you decide to explore some of it!

The Kinnickinnic is amazing. Last summer just below the campus my buddy and I caught 6 browns 12" or better in one good hole; the best was 20". You just gotta hike in at least half a mile to get to the areas with low pressure to have the best results, though.

The hardware store on main street sells an amazing selection of fly gear, and has a couple very knowledgable employees. Ask the guys at the counter if they fly fish. If they don't, they can tell you when the guys that do will be working.
