This "Where To" guide is not designed to tell you which bridge to start from or which section of the stream has the most fish. We are trying to describe the character of the stream as well as the character of the streams in that region. We are only going to describe a few of the better-known streams in each region. We haven't divulged any major secrets but the information presented should be enough to get you on your way. Any of the streams we describe can be found in books, magazines and other web pages. The smaller lesser known streams we will leave for you to find on your own and to help prevent a hoard of fishermen from showing up on that piece of water. We will however offer some tips on how to find the small stream that can offer you some quiet time on the water.
We have divided up the state into five regions; six if you count the great lake tributaries. Click on the map to the left or the list of streams below.
Each of the region pages will list a few of the better-known streams in that region and will talk about some of the better hatches that can be found. Each stream page describes the stream and includes the county it is in, the page in DeLorme's Wisconsin Atlas & Gazetteer
and the page it is found on in Wisconsin Trout Fishing Regulations and Guide.
