Ash Creek, SW Wisconsin WATCH ASH CREEK Ash Creek is a tributary to the Pine River in Southwest Wisconsin offering 10 miles of class 1 trout water. Brook trout are the main species. There weren't any public easements where I fished it but bridges allow you to get to the stream and so long as you stay in it you are not trespassing.
Coe Hollow Creek, SW Wisconsin WATCH COE HOLLOW CREEK Coe Hollow Creek is a small trout stream of southwest Wisconsin. It flows thru Sidie Hollow Park before entering the Sidie Hollow lake/reservoir and offers small brown trout. I believe the Vernon County park system stocks trout in this little creek because there are so many present.
Bohemian Creek, SW Wisconsin WATCH BOHEMIAN CREEK Bohemian Creek flows thru Monroe and La Crosse Counties offering 8 miles of class 1 trout water for brown trout and brook trout. There has been a lot of habitat improvement work done and much public access leases exist. It is a productive and one of the more popular trout streams in southwest Wisconsin, also known as the Driftless area.
Copper Creek, SW Wisconsin WATCH COPPER CREEK Copper Creek, a fine brown trout stream in Crawford county, SW Wisconsin, is of particular concern at this time due to the proposed high capacity well at its headwaters that may seriously dewater the stream. With insufficient water there won't be many trout left. As you can see in the video, this stream is a joy to fish and it would be ashamed if we ever loose it.
Crow Hollow Creek, Wisconsin WATCH CROW HOLLOW CREEK Crow Hollow Creek is a small trout stream in southwest Wisconsin that is just full of small brown trout. It is a tributary of the Kickapoo River. Not many people fish this stream. Not many people even know it exists, although this film may change that a little. There are about 4 miles of class I trout water.
Fancey Creek, Wisconsin WATCH FANCEY CREEK Fancy Creek is a basic brown and brook trout stream in Southwest Wisconsin. It does produce the occasional trophy fish of either species on occasion. In this early April day I battled the cold and wind and ended up catching a few fish on spinners and scuds.
Gran Grae Creek, Wisconsin WATCH GRAN GRAE CREEK Gran Grae Creek is a trout stream in Southwest Wisconsin flowing into the Wisconsin River. There are about twice as many brown trout as brook trout and they get over 18" on this stream. The stream does not receive much pressure and I've always considered it one of the more charming creeks in the area.
Hornby Creek, Wisconsin WATCH HORNBY CREEK Hornby Creek is another one of those small southwest Wisconsin spring creeks that is just full of brown trout. Most of the fish average 9" to 13" with an occasional larger one. There is good public access and not much pressure.
Kepler Branch, Wisconsin WATCH KEPLER BRANCH Kepler Branch is a small spring creek in southwest Wisconsin offering 1.5 miles of class 1 trout water. It is a tributary to the better known Mill Creek. There are public easements on the lower mile. Both brown trout and brook trout are available. The fish are usually not more than 12 inches but the small setting makes them seem larger.
Knapp Creek, Wisconsin WATCH KNAPP CREEK Knapp Creek offers 14 miles of class I trout water in Southwest Wisconsin. There are few residents in this area and little traffic, so the area does tend to be quiet and a good place to take a nap. It is also a good place to fish for brown trout, some of which can get big, along with the occasional brook trout. There is a mixture of public leases and private land having access via bridges and inlet streams.
Mill Creek, Wisconsin WATCH MILL CREEK Mill Creek is a tributary to the Wisconsin River in southwest Wisconsin offering 10 miles of class 2 trout water. There is good public access and some of that features a catch and release section. Most of the fish are brown trout with a few brook trout present. Deep holes in the lower half of the river are known to hold trophy browns over 20 inches long.
Mormone Coulee Creek, Wisconsin WATCH MORMONE COULEE CREEK Mormon Coulee Creek is a tributary to the Mississippi River near La Crosse in southwest Wisconsin, the Driftless area. It offers 15 miles of class 2 water for mostly brown trout but brook trout are also present. There are easements in the middle section and the DNR recommends this stream for both action and a chance at a trophy trout.
Pine Creek, Wisconsin WATCH PINE CREEK Pine Creek is a trout stream in southwest Wisconsin, Crawford county, offering 6.5 miles of class 1 trout water. There is a good amount of public access although the stream can be difficult to wade due to deep water and silt. We got a nice 14" brown trout during our time fishing it.
Pine River, Wisconsin WATCH PINE RIVER The Pine River in Southwest Wisconsin offers 19 miles of class 2 trout water. The lower section, from Melanchton Creek down to Richland Center, is know for producing trophy brown trout in the 20 to 24 inch range. Unfortunately the stream runs thru private property and is too deep to wade. Canoeing is an option but occasional log jams are going to make for difficult portages. The upper section is much easier to fish but does not have as many trophy browns as the lower section. Who said catching a trophy brown was easy? Special thanks to guest angler Jay Thurston, author and local fishing expert.
Plum Creek, Wisconsin WATCH PLUM CREEK Plum Creek offers 5 miles of class 1 trout water in southwest Wisconsin. A tributary to the Kickapoo River, Plum Creek is known to produce good action for brook trout throughout the summer when many other streams get too warm, although on this day we caught mostly brown trout.
Read Creek, Wisconsin WATCH READS CREEK Reads Creek, also known as Blackbottom Creek, is a tributary of the Kickapoo River flowing through Vernon County offering 6 and a half miles of class 1 trout water. This is a fine, quality stream offering an abundance of brown trout along with a few brook trout. Most of the trout will be in the 8 to 12 inch range with few up to 18 inches. Two stretches of leased land along with several bridge crossings give easy access. The stream has a gravel bottom and is easy to wade.
Rullands Coulee Creek, Wisconsin WATCH RULLANDS COULEE CREEK What a beautiful stream! Rullands Coulee Creek is located in Southwest Wisconsin and is a tributary to the well known Timber Coulee Creek. It is a highly spring fed stream offering 4.5 miles of class I trout water with a reasonable amount of public access. Small browns are highly abundant and good sized brook trout are also present. These fish can be spooky and difficult to catch.
Rush Creek, Wisconsin WATCH RUSH CREEK Rush Creek is a tributary of the Mississippi River in Crawford County, Wisconsin, offering 11 miles of class 2 trout water. The lower section has much public ownership and a backcountry feel that some anglers enjoy. It is primarily a brown trout stream with some fish reaching up to 20 inches.
Silver Creek, Wisconsin WATCH SILVER CREEK Silver Creek is a unique stream of southwest Wisconsin offering 7 miles of class 1 trout water. It is unique in that it flows thru an environment more typical of Northern Wisconsin and also because it resides on the Fort McCoy military reserve. You need a special permit to fish here and do take care not to get bombed or shot while on the premises. Brook trout are the main fish species, and downstream of Coles Creek they can get big.
Springville Branch, Wisconsin WATCH SPRINGVILLE BRANCH I decided to post this video after hearing about a proposal to dump waste water from the town of Viroqua into the headwaters area of this wonderful limestone spring creek. If that does end up happening I hope it will not have an adverse affect on this excellent fishery.
Weister Creek, Wisconsin WATCH WEISTER CREEK Weister Creek is a small tributary to the Kickapoo River in SW Wisconsin. It offers 7 miles of class 1 trout water for wild brown trout and planted brook trout. It is easy to wade and has good access, either via public land below County Road P or via bridge crossings.
West Fork Kickapoo River, Wisconsin WATCH WEST FORK KICKAPOO RIVER The West Fork Kickapoo River in southwest Wisconsin is a Trout Unlimited top 100 trout stream and probably the best trout stream in southwest Wisconsin. It has an abundance of public fishing easements, a lot of good sized brown trout and some nice brook trout as well.
