This free, annual 16-page newspaper is an angler’s guide to the 2009 fishing year, with fishing forecasts that Department of Natural Resources fish biologists provide for many popular waters statewide.
Anglers looking to target some of Wisconsin’s well known fish can dive into “Hook Your Favorite Catch” for tips on adjusting your sights, techniques and bait to increase your chances of success.
“A Year of Fabulous Fishing” provides anglers a month-by-month rundown of what’s bound to be biting and where, depending on the time of year.
In “Fabulous Fisheries Projects,” readers can learn about the work fisheries crews are doing around the state each year to protect Wisconsin’s fish and make fishing better.
“Get Hooked” will introduce readers to DNR’s Urban Fishing Program that encourages more people, especially children, to go fishing and helps to make fishing opportunities more readily available in urban areas.
Anglers will also find great refrigerator material such as fishing season dates, top 50 family-friendly waters and fish watching opportunities throughout the state.
The 2009 Fishing Report is available now online for download and will be available April 1, 2009 in newsprint form at local DNR service centers and select Fleet Farm and Gander Mountain stores. It will also be included in the April 2009 Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine, which will be available online and at many Wisconsin newsstands.
