Northern musky season begins

Zone for fishing includes inland waters north of Highway 10

Wisconsin’s northern zone musky season is set to open.

The season began Saturday. The northern zone encompasses all inland waters north of U.S. Highway 10, which roughly bisects the state through Stevens Point.

State Department of Natural Resources fishery experts said things look good for anglers.

The fish have almost finished spawning and are ready to feed. Water temperatures have risen and the fish are becoming more active.
