The Wisconsin River

It is getting close to the warmer season and you’re thinking about how you want to spend your time at the Wisconsin Dells while you’re staying at the Bonanza Camping Resort. Well, you’re in luck.

Aside from the multiplicity of different options you have, you can spend some time getting back to nature. After all, that’s part of what you want to do when you’re camping up north, right? Part of that getting back to nature time can be spent fishing.

Hook, line, and sinker

Fishing is a great sport for a variety of reasons. First, its relaxing. Many fishermen will tell you that even if you’re not catching anything you’re still getting a chance to commune with nature. Second, you’re practicing an honest to goodness skill. A skill that is applicable to real life instead of a video game. Finally, you’re catching your dinner.

Fishing in Wisconsin, Bonanza Campground


One of the great places to do some fishing near the dells is the Wisconsin River, below the dam. You’ll find that some of the most popular fish to catch are Walleye, Pike, Muski, Smallmouth Bass, White Striper Bass, and panfish. You might even catch some catfish.

Right now, you’re likely to be catching walleye, that is if you go after dark and work the shoreline. If you’re going to be here in the late spring, you’ll want to move further downstream. If you can’t make it till April, you’re looking more at white bass. Good luck!
