Gentle and lovely, this is a river of dreams. Spring draws the water out of Wisconsin’s northcountry, filtering it first into tiny rivulets beneath the conifers, including those of Nicolet National Forest. These tiny brooks coalesce into the headwaters of streams that grow into rivers that carry trout—the Brule (shared later with Michigan’s Upper Peninsula), the Peshtigo, and the Wolf, which is the best of them all. Whelped by feeders of Hiles Mill Pond and Pine Lake, the Wolf emerges as a stream in its own right at the outflow of Post Lake. But it is not until the Hunting River runs into the Wolf at Pearson, that the river becomes fishable. For 60 miles, to the southern boundary of the Menominee Indian Reservation, the Wolf is first-class trout water. The upper 34 miles of the river are accessible to all anglers, and the remainder of the mileage is reserved for Indians. Anglers respect the boundary to be sure, but the trout are not so responsible. Species: Brown, rainbow. Angling methods: spin, and fly-fishing.
