Wisconsin hosts a greatly overlooked inland coldwater resource that provides world-class, under the radar trout angling in an area mainly looked at as a warmwater fishery. Many natural waterways hold wild populations of beautiful brook trout that are every bit as indigenous to the region as the musky.
Other streams have developed excellent fisheries for rainbows and some very large, wild browns. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) operates a fairly extensive lake stocking program as well. Trout are available to the fly angler from March to September, and since Wisconsin is not on the itinerary of too many traveling trout anglers there is plenty of solitude to be found in their pursuit.
