Public Fishing & Hunting Locations

Hunting on Public Lands

Public hunting is available in the Town of Dayton on 1,281 acres at the Radley Creek Fishery Area, owned by the State of Wisconsin, about 10 miles southwest of Waupaca on Highway 22. The principal wildlife are deer, ruffed grouse and squirrels. Public hunting is also available at the Emmons Creek Barrons Natural Area, next to Hartman Creek State Park. Contact Hartman Creek State Park for additional information including maps, permits and regulations.

Public Fishing Areas

All waterways in Wisconsin are managed by the state, and public fishing is allowed wherever there is public access. State lands and natural areas often contain fishing areas, and many lakes in the area offer public boat launches. Information about public boat launches can be found on the Waupaca County Parks & Recreation website.
