The Wolf River in Wisconsin is well known for it’s great fishing, and New London is in the middle of all the action. Walleye and white bass fill the river both spring and fall. Catfish, smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing is quite good all summer and there is a good population of northern pike and even a few Muskie in the area. There is also a good resident population of walleye, bluegill and crappie in area back-waters. Fall fishing on the Wolf River is popular for walleyes, smallmouth bass and crappies.
Johnny’s has almost everything you need and enjoy world class fishing on Wisconsin’s Wolf River.
