Fishing season to open May 4

Anglers venturing out for the May 4 opening day of the inland fishing season will find strong fish populations — particularly for walleye — and will want to use early season tactics to reel them in, state fisheries officials say.

“It’s been a long winter and people are eager to get out fishing and enjoy the excitement and tradition of opening day,” said Mike Staggs, Wisconsin’s fisheries director.

“The key will be for anglers to use early season fishing tactics since many fish species likely won’t have finished spawning,” he said.
