Wisconsin's Driftless Area

“Less than a five-hour drive from Chicago, this relatively undiscovered region of wrinkled valleys and limestone bluffs contains 63 spring-fed creeks running 220-plus miles. Called the Driftless Area because glaciers advancing from the north 10,000 years ago didn’t manage to flatten the landscape, it boasts some of the best fly-fishing in the Midwest.” Brian E. Clark offers a detailed introduction to the interesting fishing for browns and brookies to be found in southwest Wisconsin. In the Chicago Sun-Times.

  • No really – the fishing here is poor. The article is not accurate. Fish our miles of spring creeks at you own risk. Better to head to Iowa… Oh well I think the secret is out. If you do make it this way try to drop a few bucks at the local shop, diner, and hotel/motel or campground. Please don’t leave anything behind and go easy on the resource. Enjoy it!
