Fishing Wisconsin Inland trout and Great Lakes salmon and trout stamp contests

First inland trout stamp

Attention adult artists (18 years of age and older)

The Inland Trout Stamp and Great Lakes Salmon and Trout Stamp contests will begin accepting adult artwork! The fisheries program first conducted the Inland Trout Stamp contest in 1978 followed by the Great Lakes Salmon and Trout Stamp contest in 1982. Over 70 Wisconsin artists participated in these first trout and salmon stamp contests. Over the next 30 years or so, the number of entries gradually declined to the point that the contests were discontinued in 2010, to the disappointment of many. After careful consideration and weighing the pros and cons, the fisheries program decided to revive the contest in 2017. Review this year's contest results.

Collector stamps

Inland Trout and Salmon and Trout stamps are available for purchase.
