Fishing WisconsinUrban and community fishing

Several ponds are designated as urban fishing waters to make fishing opportunities more readily available and encourage more people, especially youngsters, to go fishing. Regulations that apply to these ponds are found on page 22 in the Guide to Wisconsin Hook and Line Fishing Regulations, 2014-2015.
