Wisconsin inland fishing season opens Saturday

Madison, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin’s inland fishing season opens
Saturday, and the state Department of Natural Resources says it
expects to sell 1.4 million fishing licenses this year.

Resident licenses cost $20 each.

The governor’s annual fishing opener will be held on the
Chippewa Flowage.

The DNR says that because spring has been slow to come to
northern Wisconsin, it’s likely that walleye and northern pike will
still be spawning and be in more shallow waters during the
opener.

DNR Secretary Matt Frank says fishing is a great and inexpensive
way for people to relax and recharge their batteries during the
recession.

The most recent state survey says anglers caught 88 million fish
in Wisconsin waters in 2006.
