Many anglers will attest that Kickapoo River is one of the best places to fish for trout in the Midwest. It’s located at Wilton, sixty miles from where it opens up at Wauzeka. Although the river spans 130 miles, there are only about 30 miles of fishable waters. Kickapoo River’s hairpin turns, and sharp pathway tends to limit access. In the west fork of the river, you’ll find the best population of trout. Anglers enjoy fishing from shore or while wading. Most of the water is wadable due to the shallow waters but be mindful that some areas can get as deep as four feet deep. Be cautious of deep holes when wading – they can be deeper than six feet.
