Accessible fishing pier along Oconto River open after winter construction

Local News

MOUNTAIN, Wis. (WFRV) – Everyone and anyone will have a chance to fish this summer thanks to an accessible fishing pier along the South Branch Oconto River is open again.

The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest reopened the site to the public Thursday after winter construction to restore the area. 20 years ago multiple organizations partnered to build the quarter-mile boardwalk and a series of fishing piers that are more accessible for everyone.

The river’s accessible fishing trail is off of County Highway T, between County Highway W and State Highway 64.
