Make Plans for Upcoming Green Bay Fishing Seasons
Spring is nearly here, which means it’s time to get outside and explore the wonderful opportunities found in the Greater Green Bay area. The State of Wisconsin is home to over 15,000 inland lakes and 42,000 miles of streams and rivers, not to mention the fishing found in the Great Lakes. These wonderful fishing opportunities make Wisconsin a premier fishing destination in the Midwest. Green Bay, the heart of Brown County, is a legendary destination for winter ice fishing anglers, and while that season may be coming to a rapid end, there are still a few anglers that continue to find opportunities for Green Bay fishing this winter, especially in areas where access roads have been established. However, even if you’ve missed your chance for winter ice fishing this year, there’s still reason to rejoice in the Green Bay fishing opportunities coming up soon.

However, 2014-2015 licenses can be purchased today, and you get started on planning this years Green Bay fishing adventures! When you stay at our Green Bay Bed and Breakfast, you’re within easy reach of the many wonderful Green Bay fishing opportunities that kick off again this spring.
Green Bay Fishing Opportunities
In the local Green Bay area, Ice shacks need to be removed by March 16, marking the rapid end to the ice fishing season. However, along the Fox River in DePere, you’ll still find Walleyes, where anglers are fishing through the ice as conditions continue to deteriorate. In Wisconsin, there are opportunities for year-round fishing on some waters and for some species, but there are set seasons and regulations for certain species and regions. Typically, opening day for Wisconsin fishing is the first Saturday in May, which marks the season for hook and line fishing for many fish species throughout the state. This regular fishing season includes species such as certain Bass species, Walleye and Sauger, Northern Pike and Muskellunge. The early inland trout season on selected waters runs from 5 a.m. on the first Saturday in March (March 1, 2014) through the Sunday preceding the first Saturday in May (April 27, 2014). The regular inland trout season runs from May 3, 2014 to Sept. 30, 2014. In Brown County, there are several great trout fishing streams to choose from. Gilson Creek and Thornberry Creek are both rated Class I streams, while Wilson Creek and Lancaster Creek are both Class II streams.
