River fishing remains fantastic for walleyes throughout the winter. It is rare to not leave with limits of walleyes this time of year. Also, the trout fishing around the Milwaukee area is world-class. Both numbers and giant Trout days are common. However, these fishing days in the winter can be controlled by the weather. Ice, temperature, and wind can create magical days and also cancel planned trips. Be prepared to dress warm and be flexible to accommodate these often changing conditions in SE Wisconsin.
