» The Wolf River

The legendary “Walleye Run” on the Wolf River in the spring of the year boasts some of the best and earliest walleye fishing in Wisconsin.  The Wolf River keeps the fisherman busy with white, small mouth, large mouth, and rock bass.

Fish any season for the “people’s fish” of Wisconsin, the northern pike.  Looking for a challenge?  Try catfish!  Channel and flathead catfish thrive in the Wolf River.

» Wildlife and Fishery Areas

The Mukwa Wildlife Area is about 1,300 acres of marshland located on the west side of New London.  This area is known for the annual migration of the walleye, white bass, catfish, and spawning sturgeon. In addition, to the west is the adjacent 200 acre Wolf River Fishery Area.

Riverside Park on W. Wolf River Avenue is home to one of New London’s public boat landings.  Riverside Park is equipped with multiple boat launches, a bait shop, shelter house, docks, and restrooms.  Docks are also found downtown at Taft and Loss parks.  Moor your boat and explore our many shops or grab a bite to eat.
