Not really Driftless-related, but great news nonetheless for Wisconsin's native trout.

That's great news! I'm planning a couple days up there this summer. What are the species and techniques?

I hope the counties buy up the land other land their selling and keep it open to the public. The way things are going, better to keep it out of state control.

Vast majority of the fish are brookies, although some ponds have big Browns to. I usually fish a scud/midge combo with a hand-twist retrieve, occasionally a midge dry but they can be picky on top especially on the crystal clear ponds. If spin fishing try a small mepps.

That is good news. Those spring ponds sound pretty awesome geographically and biologically. Hopefully all the others fall under county control as well, knowing that they are spring fed it would be a shame for them to fall to an aquaculture farmer or someone who could really cause some ecological issues.

On a side note: I don't follow Wisconsin politics much other than what I hear on WPR when I'm driving through the state. From the brief reading I did that Knowels Nelson stewardship program sounded like a pretty nice arrangement until walker fudged it up.
