Waushara County is a wonderful blend of farming and recreation. With more than 100 lakes, 150 miles of trout streams, 7,000 acres of public hunting and fishing, and 12 county parks, “outdoors” is spoken here. In Wautoma visit the WWII Memorial Building. To the north, the cold-water ponds of the Wild Rose Fish Hatchery produce a quarter of all the trout and salmon stocked statewide. In western Waushara County, the UW’s Hancock Agricultural Research Station offers fascinating guided tours of its facility and the 150 research projects it conducts annually.
