The makings of a good fishing season

Email News Alerts

Another open water fishing season has just started across the Midwest. So far, I've seen lots of people fishing. When the weather is nice, the banks of popular fishing areas are lined with anglers, and the boat ramps have been busy also. Best of all, fishing success has been good. I've received reports of crappies showing up in places where they haven't been before, and the walleyes have been very willing biters. Those are good signs: We've got the makings of a very good fishing season.
