Spring Pond, End of Season
The spring ponds of North Central Wisconsin, though less well known that the spring creeks of the Driftless Area, are a gem in their own right. With fishing similar to that found behind beaver
dams, these ponds often hold native brook trout or, in other cases large brown trout. The clarity of the water, seen here, is just one of the things that make fishing spring ponds a challenge. This is Sunshine Spring Pond, east of Antigo,
just three days before the close of trout season.
