Northeast WI Strawberry Pickin’ Farms

Northeast WI Strawberry Pickin’ Farms

One of my favorite things about summer is the fresh fruit, especially the berries. Picking your own is even sweeter and with many farms opening this week, the fruit is ‘berry’ ripe for the picking. 🍓 Many of these places are a short car ride away for a few hours of pickin’ and great family bonding.

**Please note that many of these pick-your-own farm experiences are dependent on fruit availability and the weather, so be sure to call ahead.

Sturgeon Spawning in Northeast WI

Sturgeon Spawning in Northeast WI

  • Posted by: admin
  • 28 April,2018

  • 19

The spawning season is starting late this year.  The DNR is hoping to see signs of the sturgeon beginning later this week with the warmer weather.  Stay tuned and I will update when I know more!

It occurs over a 7-10 day period, so it comes and goes quickly.  The chance to see these massive, historic fish up close and personal is something you can’t see anywhere else in the nation!

sturgeon1

While it is impossible to predict the exact dates of the Sturgeon Spawning, keep in mind that the water temperature usually needs to be between 50-60 degrees, so keep an eye on the forecast.  These fish are protected during this time by volunteers of the Sturgeon Patrol Guard, who are routinely scheduled from April 15th through May 5th at each location. (later this year)

The most popular places to view the action are:

1.)  Bamboo Bend in Shiocton  (on Cty Hwy 54)

2.)  Shawano Dam in Shawano

3.)  Wolf River Sturgeon Trail in New London  (about 2 miles west of New London on Cty Hwy X).

sturgeon3

We got to see this Awesome sight last year and my advice for the first timers would be to make sure you have your camera and just be patient!

Also, check out the live webcam of this event at http://wolfrivercam.com/
