Upper Fox River Public Access
Andrew Krakow Public Access and Fishery Area

Andrew Krakow Memorial Public Fishing Area in Montello is one of several DNR properties included in the Upper Fox River Public Access group of properties along the Upper Fox River.

The project is scoped to install a new dual boat launch on Buffalo Lake, a fish passage way into Buffalo Lake, two fishing piers (one below the dam and one above the dam), a canoe portage and a concrete walking path. Picnic benches and chairs will also be installed near the fish passageway as a memorial for fallen Conservation Officer Andy Krakow.
