Family Free Fishing Coming to Iron County June 3rd

On the first Saturday in June no fishing licenses are required in Wisconsin. So, this year the event will stress family fishing.  

Get out on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage with knowledgeable guides.  

The Flowage is among the finest fisheries in Wisconsin. But, it's huge and you have to know where the hot spots are.  Our experts will provide not only the boat and motor but they will divulge that secret information as they escort you and your family. The  Iron County 4H will provide rods and reels for those that don't have them and our friends at the Turtle River Trading and Flambeau Flowage Sports serve up free bait.  Just, don't let the big one get away!

Fish from shore with the guidance of Iron County Land and Water staff and members of the Mercer High School Fishing Team.

Tie a Fly

Bob Traczyk of Trout Unlimited will be on hand to teach fly tying (tie you own creation).  He will also provide fly fishing instruction from the beautiful shore and fishing dock at the Lake of the Falls park.  Will your fly creation fool a lunker?

Win a Prize

Drawings for prizes of fishing tackle and gear will occur at 2:00 PM.

Get a Free Lunch

At noon, we will serve up her famous brats, butterdogs and more.  

It's all free, but register before June 1st

To help us plan and so that we don't have too much or too little food, please tell us that you're coming. Give us  your name and the number in your party.
