Bait & Tackle Shops

August 12, 2011


Every now and then I’ll discover a new (to me) lure or gizmo that’s either discontinued by the manufacturer or in limited supply. Or, I’ll be in the position of needing to replace a rare piece of tackle. Besides searching eBay and other online sources, checking local stores can also be useful. Visiting some small […]

Fish Camp Park

April 25, 2011


Fish Camp Park in McFarland is on the northern end of Lake Kegonsa where the Yahara River enters. The park map shows two parking areas. The eastern side is the boat launch where the restrooms and fish cleaning facility are located. The western parking lot is known as the canoe launch area. A fee is […]

LaFollette Park Lock & Dam

April 24, 2011


At the Yahara River outlet of Lake Kegonsa is the lock and dam at LaFollette County Park. The park’s shelter and picnic area was described in a previous post. If you like river shore fishing with current, the lock and dam is the place to go. Parking is a bit limited, though. When the kids […]

LaFollette Park is on the eastern shore of Lake Kegonsa just down the road from Lake Kegonsa State Park. LaFollette, as shown in the park map, has two areas of interest. There’s the shelter/picnic area, which this post will cover, and the lock & dam that will be covered in a separate post.

The county map shows this site as a shore fishing spot, but there’s not much shoreline. Parking is available on the street so it’s best to leave the small parking lot […]

Pleasant Springs Boat Launch

April 21, 2011


Near the Lake Kegonsa State Park we have the Pleasant Springs Boat Launch. This boat landing is popular during ice fishing season since it’s very near Williams Point on Lake Kegonsa. Not really a shore fishing spot unless you’re willing to pay the parking fee.  

Lake Kegonsa State Park

April 19, 2011


One of the few public shore fishing spots on Lake Kegonsa, the Lake Kegonsa State Park requires the usual state park admission fee. Lots of things to do here as seen on this park map. With today’s winter-like weather, I am just going to post some aerial photos of the park shoreline. I had planned […]
