Fishing Opener

Many people were out on the state's many waterways, but they might not have caught as many fish as in years past.

The DNR reports that due to lack of funding, fewer streams, lakes, and ponds will be stocked with trout.

Saturday in Eleva, anglers caught their limit because it was one of few stocked with trout this year.

The DNR estimates about two million people will cast a line into Wisconsin waters this year. All of those people will generate $2.3 billion for Wisconsin's economy.
