Quite a few more leaves have turned color in the past few days, and more pockets of color are showing up here and there. The staghorn sumac is turning a brilliant red-orange and roadside ferns are turning gold & rust. Fall color typically peaks around October 1st. According to local fishing guide Joe Brezinzki of Northland Guide Service, the muskie activity was excellent this past week. Fishing very shallow weedy areas produced many follows and boated fish. The largest fish was a very nice 46 incher caught on a suick. They saw many fish on both eights and tens with cowgirls and flashers producing the best success. One of his clients boated a beautiful 36" tiger muskie on a flasher. Water temps dropped a few degrees but with the warm weather predicted, it should stay in the mid- to high-60s. Topwater action may also continue especially during low light conditions as the water continues to stay warm. Sturgeon fishing season is open through September 30, and anglers have been out on the Flambeau River trying their luck.

Sporadic spots of gorgeous Fall colors are beginning to pop over our area, and we're looking forward to another beautiful season! The Marshfield area's fall color season generally begins in mid-September and ends in early to mid-October. It’s easy to plan a fall color getaway in Marshfield because of our beautiful walking, hiking, and biking paths. Visit the many miles of trails in Marshfield including the University of Wisconsin Wood County Arboretum, Wildwood Park and Zoo, McMillan Marsh, or Hamus Nature Park to view the beautiful oranges, reds, golds, and greens of fall.

Autumn is slow in coming to south central Wisconsin, with only the first hints of fall foliage color beginning in some of the trees. We've had beautiful warm days and cool evenings and nights for the last week. This is a great time to enjoy Beaver Dam Lake. With summer like days paddleboarding, kayaking and canoeing are still great recreational options. Don't forget about terrific autumn fishing on the lake, either! Visit local pumpkin farms and apple orchards for the U-Pick options or shop in their convenient stores for prepackaged produce and retail items. This is also a great time of year for camping in any of the Dodge County Parks like Derge Park on Beaver Dam Lake, Astico Park on the Crawfish River, Harnischfeger Park on the Rock River or Ledge Park, on a high point just east of Horicon. Stop at Beaver Dam's only Visitor Center in the Chamber of Commerce offices at 127 S. Spring Street in the historic downtown.

Fall is arriving on the "Mississippi River Coast of Wisconsin". Our biggest challenge this past week has been the tremendous rain and flooding. The roads are now all open and ready to welcome you, our guests and visitors. The leaves are showing a lighter green and yellow with a many rusts showing on trees closer to the Mississippi River. Sumaks are deep purple and burgundy. The bird migration is also just starting and the raptors lead the way by passing through the Mississippi River Flyway in early September. Bring your binoculars to see this. The Wisconsin Great River Road - Hwy 35 - is your route to take. The rain is truly going away and sunshine will showcase the majestic bluffs and gorgeous river country. Try the backroads for great adventures too. The Kickapoo River and the Wisconsin Rivers are both great for canoeing and we see more and more bikes and motorcycles. The apple orchards of Gays Mills are bursting with many varieties of apples and Applefest is Sept. 24 & 25. Cornfields are turning golden brown and soybean fields are dotted with shades of gold and green as harvest time nears. The Barge traffic on the Mississippi River is picking up because soon they will be loading with grains to take to market in ports to the South. Everyone wants to see the "Mississippi River Coast of Wisconsin" and celebrate Fall. Enjoy your trip. www.visitferryville.com

The vistas in the Driftless are gorgeous! Visit the scenic hills and valleys of the Kickapoo Valley Reserve outside of La Farge to see the beautiful scenery for yourself. The maples show first hints of bright yellows and oranges and the hillsides have areas of color. The soybeans are bright in the fields. While you're in the area, be sure to stop by the Viroqua Farmer's Market on Saturdays from 8am-Noon at the Vernon County Fairgrounds. It is one of the largest in the region and boasts an abundance of organic produce, local artisans, and Amish goods.
