The Wolf River Book by Tim Waters

Wolf River Fly Shop

The Wolf River of eastern Langlade County is a hidden gem in the north woods of Wisconsin. My logs over the past quarter century of trout fishing the river shows, among other things, the improvement over the years. I spent the past three years writing a book about the Wolf River. It is finally finished! The paperback includes 394 pages, 360 footnotes and 46 tables. The chapter titles include History, Places, Species, Tributaries, Aquatic Insects, Bait, Tactics, Journals and Voices. 

Chapter one is a short history of the Wolf River including pre logging, logging, post logging and a section on Cap Buettner. Chapter two is places on the Wolf, and includes Hollister Flats, river access and rapids. Chapter three is species, and relies heavily on my trout logs and includes sections on brown trout, brook trout, rainbow trout, mortality and growth rate. Chapter four is tributaries and includes a fairly comprehensive list of tributaries, their attributes, testing results and thermistor results. Chapter five is aquatic insects or mayflies, and includes 24 different hatches. Chapter six is bait or flies for trout on the Wolf and includes sections on original Wolf River flies, streamers, wets and nymphs and dries. Chapter seven is tactics and includes sections on reading the river, seasons of the Wolf, trout behavior, streamer tactics, nymph tactics and dry fly tactics. Chapter eight is a collection of selected Wolf River journals from March through November. Chapter nine is a collection of quotes taken from various interviews.
