Cast a Line for Trophy Trout

Viroqua sits in an ancient landscape that stands out thanks to its unique geology and incredible trout fishing. During the last ice age, glaciers surrounded the Driftless Area but never plowed up and deposited materials — known as drift — as they receded. This left the area with fractured limestone and sandstone. Water percolating through this rock is filtered, cooled, and given an excellent PH level feeding miles of streams that are a perfect habitat for a variety of trout species. The Driftless Area features more than 13,000 miles of trout creeks, many of which flow through more than 5 million acres of public land.
