Mississippi River Fishing

Wisconsin’s upper Mississippi River attracts anglers seeking to fish for a large variety of fish. There are more than 119 fish species in this river – more than any of the inland lakes in the state. Sport fish in the river include walleye, sauger, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, northern pike, bluegill, and crappie. Don’t worry if you don’t fish by boat –there’s ample opportunity for shore fishing. The river’s typical riverine fish include catfish, bluesucker, shorthead redhorse, and bigmouth buffalo. Ancient species here include paddlefish, lake sturgeon and shovelnose sturgeon. The upper Mississippi River is teeming with fish waiting for you.
