Wisconsin Fishing Calendar
Wisconsin's Fishing Seasons
Opening day for Wisconsin fishing is traditionally the first Saturday in May. Hook and line fishing for many species of fish on many Wisconsin waters begins the first Saturday in May. However, to better manage Wisconsin fisheries, season dates are often specific to the species of fish as well as the water body.
The season dates web pages are organized alphabetically by fish species. For more information on using these season dates web pages refer to Using these Tables and the Definitions Web pages which accompany these tables.
Free Fishing Week-end is always the first full Saturday and Sunday in June.
