Whether wetting a line off a bridge, from a boat, shoreline or cutting a hole in the ice, fishing is great. The Fox River, Green Lake and Lake Puckaway are managed for quality fishing, and favorites include small and large mouth bass, bluegill, perch, white bass, northern, walleye, cisco, musky, trout and catfish.
