why would you hold the land owner accountable.

Unfortunately the nanny state nature of the US generally allows people to never hold themselves accountable and thus it must be another party's fault aka the infamous McDonald's coffee spill (coffee is served hot? really? who knew!?!)

Hey guys, Thanks for the infomation. I've been lurking here for a while now, and was considering starting a thread about this topic. I'm new to fishing the driftless area (WI mostly) and was curious about etiquette as well as legal issues.

thanks for the great forums!

HBD welcome to the board! May I ask what part of Wisconsin you mainly fish or plan to fish? What would you like to know specifically? If you are looking for easement maps here is a useful link. I see the database has been revised. Basically you have to zoom in fairly close to where you want to fish. Any areas shaded in green or pink are public easement.

http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/faci...s/dnr_lands_mapping.html

New feature: Satellite view, very cool. Also you will see thin blue lines and thick blue lines. The thick areas are generally where there are deeper pools which I often find helpful. Also you can type in a city on the top right to get you close to where you want to start looking right off the bat.

Thanks Mark,

Last summer I was up in Vernon Co. most of the time. I live in Madison and while I've been in WI for 15-16 years, I just recently discovered the joy of the driftless area trout fishing. I'm looking forward to discovering more of the area next year.

HBD you are one lucky guy. Vernon County is the heart of the Driftless. I love Tainter and Reads quite a bit. I have also briefly played around in Hornby and WF Kickapoo. I have so much to explore in this county myself. We go to Viroqua at least once a summer for a 4+ day weekend.

So if they have barb wire running across the stream like i usually see close to bridges
is it legal to pass under it? I never knew you could get out because it was to deep.

obstructions are fences/down trees/too deep of water for your waders "doesn't differentiate chest or hip waders/

You can't fish while out

must take most direct route and re-establish yourself in the water and you can again fish.

Len, quick question, i noticed on some of your stream posting you listed some as private. If you access from a bridge and stay in the water is that tresspassing? Or are they private because there is no bridge access? Thanks in advance, Brian

Bridge to bridge, keep your feet wet you are good. If water too deep or obstruction such as fence or tree you are allowed to exit briefly. Such is not the case in MN - have to always stay in the water.
