Fishing on the Mighty Mississippi is a year-round sport in this area. Local bait shops can give you the scoop on what is biting and some ideas about where to go. Local trout streams are some of the best in the state, and we have trout anglers come to the area from all over the country. Take a hike at one of our natural areas and enjoy a sunset overlooking the river, or the beautiful blends of oak forests and open meadows. Check out Sugar Creek Bluff Natural Area or Rush Creek Natural Area online and see all they have to offer.
