Trout Fishing in Driftless Wisconsin
The Driftless Area is known for its elaborate network of world-class, clear, cold limestone creeks, and big trout populations. Beautiful streams can be found everywhere here, and their cold waters provide the best quality habitat for trout, which is what makes the fishing here so outstanding. Most of the fishable waters in Driftless Wisconsin are public, or at the least are accessible by the conservation easement partnerships between private land owners and the Wisconsin’s department of natural resources. Because of this, the possibilities of finding a great spot are virtually limitless. In the Driftless Area, you have the choice of fishing alone, or of using one of the highly qualified regional guides in the area, who often have access to the best spots and less populated private lands. We suggest teaming with the professional guides at Driftless Angler Fly Shop, so you have the successful fishing trip you’re dreaming of.
Vernon County in the Driftless Area alone boasts 65 classified trout streams, which equates to about 250 miles of fishable trout water, and includes the Class I streams of Timber Coulee and West Fork of the Kickapoo River. During the late summer and into fall, it’s best to spend early mornings or late afternoons on the water, when fish activity is at its highest. These days, you’ll find the brown trout congregating in local headwaters, as they get ready to spawn.

Our family stayed in mid-August. We had a very relaxing visit. The house is comfortable and the property is encircled by hills, making the experience a unique getaway. We enjoyed building bonfires each night, hanging out in the nice living room and taking the surprisingly lengthy hikes that are all on the property. Mornings started with coffee on the second story porch overlooking the meadow and hills, evenings ended with zero noise except that made by nature or our family. Each night there was a canopy of bright stars that weren't diluted by light pollution. We enjoyed hiking Wildcat Mountain, canoeing down the Kickapoo, roasting smores and hanging out. My son and I tried our luck at trout fishing in a nearby stream (Tainter?). It was an enjoyable, unique experience although we didn't catch anything. We'll be back.
