Exploring Wisconsin Trout Streams
The Angler’s Guide, SECOND EDITION
Steve Born, Jeff Mayers, Andy Morton, and Bill Sonzogni
Foreword by Gary A. Borger

A North Coast Book


“There is no need for anyone to even attempt to come up with a better, more complete introduction to Wisconsin trout fishing.”
Midwest Fly Fishing

Drawing on years of conservation and angling experience, Steve Born and Jeff Mayers tell you about great fishing opportunities unique to Wisconsin—1,000 miles of spring creeks, the amazing nocturnal Hex hatch, and big salmonids in the Great Lakes tributaries. They profile twenty of Wisconsin’s finest streams—from the bucolic Green River in the southwest to the historic and wild Bois Brule in the north.

This new edition includes updates throughout, new photos, and a new chapter detailing improvements in fishing opportunities since the mid-1990s but warning of the looming threats to coldwater fisheries.

Key Features:

  • Profiles of the state’s twenty finest trout streams and maps to find them
  • “Don’t miss” fishing opportunities
  • Sound advice for anglers—from beginner to expert
  • Tactics you can use to catch more trout
  • Conservation projects that have helped trout survive
  • A history of Wisconsin’s trout-fishing and conservation heritage
  • A guide to trout foods
  • Suggestions of helpful organizations, tourism and conservation offices, books, magazines, videos, and websites

Steve Born is professor emeritus of planning and environmental studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He previously served as chair of the national resources board of Trout Unlimited. Jeff Mayers, who assisted in the writing of Catching Big Fish on Light Fly Tackle, is president of the Madison-based news services WisPolitics.com and WisBusiness.com. Andy Morton has worked in natural resource management all his life and is currently a supervisor in the Water Division in the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. In addition to tying flies for his grandsons and traveling the world with his wife, William Sonzogni is professor emeritus in environmental chemistry at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

“A wonderful pick for seasoned trout stalkers and budding fishers who aspire to become well-rounded anglers. The authors recognize that quality fishing blends many dimensions, and they help the reader appreciate the whole experience.”
Wisconsin Natural Resources
