Wisconsin's Driftless Area

July 13, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

“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.
