South Branch Oconto Barrier Free Fishing Trail

For those anglers that prefer stream fishing, we have the South Branch Oconto Barrier Free Fishing Trail, one of few trails of its kind across the country. This 1/4-mile fishing trail parallels the South Branch of the Oconto River in the Lakewood-Laona Ranger District, which is a quality brook and brown trout stream. The trail provides access to 11 fishing sites, ranging from flat spots along the shoreline to cantilever decks that allow the user to be out over the stream. The trail is a cooperative effort of the Forest and nine partner organizations.

The South Branch Oconto River accessible fishing trail is located off County Highway T, between County Highway W and State Highway 64. The entrance is 2.2 miles south of Highway 64 and a few hundred feet north of the South Branch Oconto River Highway T bridge. The GPS coordinates are 45.172324,-88.618842.
