Arriving in Town
The main route through the area is County Highway Z, but County Highways Zb and Zn also provide access to some areas. None of these roads connect to State Highway 35, so you’ll need to backtrack to get to the Great River Road.
Getting on the River
Schafer’s Boats and Bait (W7221 N. Shore Lane; 608.781.3100) sells bait and tackle year-round and rents boats after the ice melts: pontoon boats, canoes, rowboats, tandem and single kayaks, and 16’ fishing boats. In winter, they are a good resource for the latest news about ice conditions and the quality of the fishing.
