Fishing Regulations


The Wisconsin DNR (Department of Natural Resources) posts the regulatory start and end dates for fishing certain species. They also highlight fishing license information, lake depths, area maps and so much more. It's important to be aware of the regulations and regular updates as they can change from year to year while the DNR attempts to balance fish species numbers in lakes across Wisconsin. The WDNR website has a wealth of knowledge so brush up on the info before you arrive and you'll be even more prepared for the start of this year's fishing season.
