Lake Wisconsin and the Wisconsin River are popular with both recreational boaters and anglers. The area has no shortage of resorts, campgrounds and tourist attractions. Camping and picnicking on the many sandbars and islands is very popular on the Wisconsin River around the Interstate 90/94 bridge. http://www.travelwisconsin.com/article/fishing/best-places-to-fish-in-wisconsin-lake-wisconsin
