    Default Where to fish in Wisconsin this summer?

    I'm thinking of warmer weather here in Wisconsin. Now that I've finished writing my dissertation I'll have some more time on my hands this summer, and a bit more money than I've had for the last few years.

    I've got a couple of small streams out in the driftless that I like to hit, but I'd like to get on some bigger trout water this summer, and probably get out of the city for a couple of days.

    There are some obvious choices, Kickapoo, Pike, Bois Brule, I get the sense though, that some of these more famous streams get over fished, But I've never gotten out to any of these waters.

    Where do the big brookies live in Wisconsin in the summer? Where can I actually cast 30-40' and toss a dry down a riffle?

    What say you?

    Good Luck finding these conditions. I have found that the biggest brookies live in the smallest, most undesturbed waters. Try fishing just outside of the more common areas. Some of the sand creeks in Trempealeau counties are very very underfished, and have large numbers of brookies. Some pigs too. I'd be hardpressed to find a brown around my home area, but would not have a problem catching at least one 18" brookie in a weekend of fishing. The streams are thick, and very hard to fish, but it pays off.
