I believe the quality of the Wisconsin fishery is better than it's ever been. Many of the small and medium size streams seem overpopulated with browns to the point where larger fish are scarce and there are fewer brookies (I know there are many reasons for that).

Anyway, enjoy the insight from the board regulars and hope I can contribute occasionally.



Welcome Commish! I've only been trout fishing for about 10 years here in Wisconsin, but have loved every trip out.

Hey everyone. My name is Dave. Born and raised in Madison but just moved back to the area after spending a couple years down in Atlanta. Love to fish for just about any thing, especially trout and smallmouth bass. I spin and fly fish, but definitely more of a novice with a flyrod. Thanks for all the information shared on the forum, I look forward to contributing my 2 cents once in a while.

Hi all,

My name is Adam and I'm a student at Stout majoring in Construction because I can't major in fishing. I grew up in Vilas county fishing and exploring both lakes and trout streams. I have been fortunate to be able to spend my winters at school here in the Driftless and summers up in Alaska chasing salmon, rainbows and dollies. I am excited to be a part of the community and hoping to contribute and connect as much as i can.

Welcome Adam.

We had a place on Deerskin Lake until 94 and then my parents retired to North Twin and have been there since - well... at least in the warm months.

I learned to trout fish on the Deerskin River in the early 80s. Used to walk there from the lake just about every day.

Welcome Adam. Although you can't major in fishing, they do (or used to) have a fly fishing class there. That is where I learned and if you have to take physical education classes; why not have one of them be about fly fishing!

Adam - welcome to the forum. Out of curiosity....do you work as a guide during the summer in Alaska?

Welcome man, I’m fishing your area all the time. I spent a week on Kodiak Island as a kid, Salmon everywhere.

Thanks for all the welcomes. It's good to be here and sounds like I'm among my type, as I have fallen in the deerskin many of times.
I'm not a guide up there quite yet, but know plenty that keeps me fishing without the headaches!
Might as well take the Fly fishing class, I sure do study enough!Laugh

Welcome! You're centrally located in an area with a lot of good and underfished water, as I'm sure you've learned.

This board is a font of valuable knowledge...if you're in the area this summer, we hold our annual troutstock on the banks of the trimbelle in mid June, you should consider attending the fiasco that is DTA in the flesh!
