photoWhether it's catfish or trout, Trempealeau County provides outstanding fishing opportunities! In the unglaciated valleys of the county, first rate trout streams provide an opportunity to fly fish in a beautiful landscape. Along the southern boundary of the county, the Mississippi River abounds in a variety of fish, as does the western border of the county: the Trempealeau River. After a day of fishing, visit one of our welcoming communities to experience locally owned dining establishments and lodging.
