Fishermen prepare for the steelhead opener this weekend

Fisherman from across the region prepare to travel to Brule, Wisconsin this weekend with the hope that they will reel in a steelhead.

It is the steelhead opener this weekend and local businesses can be expecting a busy time as people travel to Brule from all over. 

Gayle Jones, waitress at Twin Gables, said “People come from all over. I have been here two years now and I’ve met guys that have come from all over. It will be very packed.”

There will be more fish in the river this year than there were last year. 

The last time they counted the amount of steelheads in the river, it was 5,600.
