Yes I said 135 days!!!!! Wisconsin has the longest closed season of any of the Driftless Area states. Iowa stays open year round and Minnesota opens on January 01. These last 2 weeks of excellent weather could have been spent trout fishing here in Wisconsin. The dog days of winter in February when I need a trout fix I should be able to fish Wisconsin. Nope .....I have to wait until the first Saturday of March each year to go chase trout. The snow is coming down hard in this photo and the trout are eager! I love fishing in the snow. I am the angler in the photo.
