Local expert and fishing guide Kurt Schultz says all the rain that has filled the Wisconsin River has slowed down his business, "The high water has affected me, I'm on the water every day and I have had to cancel a few trips due to high water, or we've gone somewhere else. Maybe a lake to fish a little safer."
High water can cause potentially dangerous situations if you're not familiar with the river, but there are ways to avoid an accident. "If you don't know the water very well, just look out and if you see debris floating river, a fast current, or if you don't see very many boats at the boat landing, maybe that will be the best indicator that you shouldn't be out on the water that day."
Schultz says, "One thing is for sure bad conditions or not the more time you spend on the water the more you know where the fish are going to be"
