FISHING LOCATIONS

Large River Fishing:  Both the Mississippi & St. Croix Rivers have:  walleye, sauger, small & large mouth bass, channel catfish, muskellunge, northern pike, pan fish & lake sturgeon (season).  Explore the Mississippi River’s main & side channels, dams, bays & sloughs. 

Lake Fishing:  Nugget Lake is known for its bass, walleye & pan fish.  The Eau Galle Reservoir has pan fish, occasional northerns and great bass fishing. 

Trout Fishing:  Pierce County’s numerous trout streams (from west to east) are:  Kinnickinnic, Big River, Trimbelle, Isabelle, Rush River, Lost Creek, Plum Creek, Eau Galle, and Cady Creek. 

Public or Private?  How to know if I’m trespassing:  Navigability determines whether a waterway is public or private.  Navigable lakes and streams are public waterways.  A waterway is navigable if it has a bed and banks, and it is possible to float a canoe or other small craft at sometime of the year.  Because they are public, you may navigate waters for fishing, boating, swimming or other recreational activities, provided public access is available, or you have permission of the landowner to cross their property to reach the waterway.  Once on a navigable waterway, as long as you keep your feet wet, you may walk along the bed of the stream, fish, swim, or boat in any navigable lake or stream.

The editions of (a) WI Hook & Line Fishing Regulations PUBL-FH-301, and (b) WI Trout Fishing Regulations & Guide (maps) PUBL-FH-302 are available starting in March at DNR offices [www.dnr.state.wi.us]& all licensed outlets.  Contact the County Clerk Office at 715-273-3531.  To order WI hunting or fishing licenses, stamps, and park stickers over the phone call 1-877-945-4236.
