Here at Blue Ribbon Outdoors our fishing season never ends. With open water fishing almost year round and a wide array of ice fishing options, our fishing season is 365 days a year. Although it is up to you what you want to fish for, there are some general seasonal guide lines we usually stick to in order to make sure your fishing the best possible "bite" for the season. Spring is definitely a great time of year to be on the water. As the ice melts and the water warms, many fish begin their annual spawning migrations while other species seem to be more willing to bite. Beginning in late February and running until late April the walleye run is in full swing. We concentrate most of our efforts on the Wisconsin and Rock River systems. It is a great time to catch not only numbers but that trophy walleye you have been searching for.
Spring is also a great time for trout fishing. Whether you're looking to fly fish or to use standard spinning tackle, we've got you covered. Early season inland trout fishing can be absolutely fantastic, with 40-50 fish days being common. In addition to inland trout the Great Lakes trout are on the prowl this time of year. Steelhead make their annual spawning runs up tributary streams in the spring and are an absolute blast to catch. Brown and Lake trout are also abundant near shore in Lake Michigan.
Summer brings the beginning of Musky, Bass, Northern Pike, and catfish. We concentrate most of our efforts on the Madison chain of lakes as well as many other Southern Wisconsin waters. The Madison chain of lakes is a great fishery with a very healthy Musky population as well as a great Smallmouth Bass fishery. Lake Michigan Salmon and Trout charters are be available aboard a 27ft Sea Ray Sedan Bridge(see out charters page).
Fall is a time to land a big Musky, as well as a huge Walleye and Pike. This time of year a lot of fishing will again be on the Madison chain of lakes as well as the Wisconsin River. This time of year also brings migratory Salmon and Trout out of Lake Michigan and up into the Tributary streams and rivers providing great action on both Fly and Spinning tackle. This is also a great time to get out in the boat and continue fishing for Lake Michigan Trout and Salmon with many Trout making their way back into shallow water.
Winter brings plenty of open water fishing. Many of Southern Wisconsin's river systems remain open throughout the winter and provide excellent Walleye fishing. There is also Fly and Spinning tackle fishing on many of the Lake Michigan tributaries all winter long as many Lake Michigan trout will spend the winter in the rivers on their spawning runs.
All guide trips include fishing equipment and bait as well as fish cleaning at the end of the day. For every guide trip you will need to prove the necessary fishing license, appropriate clothing and any wanted snacks and beverages. Alcohol beverages are permitted but please drink in moderation.
